Common questions about business insurance

What is business insurance?

What is the difference between ‘defense costs inside limits’ or ‘outside the limits’?

Defense costs inside the limit simply means that defense costs are deducted from the total policy limit, resulting in less coverage available for any settlement payout.

Defense costs outside the limit means your defense costs are covered outside the policy limits, leaving your policy limit intact for covering any settlement payout.
