Benefits Overview of Liability Insurance

Covers legal costs

Liability covers take care of legal expenses when you have to defend yourself. These costs can rapidly mount up. In some insurances the insurer also has a duty to defend which makes them responsible for taking up the law suit. Generally, insurers are also a good source of identifying competent lawyers and preparing a defence strategy.

Meets contractual obligations

Business partners increasingly require you to purchase liability insurances to do business with them. This is true of companies overseas and increasingly, in India. Liability insurances meet all these contractual requirements. These insurances can also be modified to include your customer’s name as an additional insured, another common requirement.

Cover across countries

A well placed liability insurance will cover you for legal costs in any country. This becomes important when you have customers or operations outside of India. Often, litigation will take place in a foreign country. This is expensive and you may not have the market knowledge of how to defend yourself there.
