Occurrence (CGL)

This term means an accident, including continuous or repeated exposure to conditions, which results in bodily injury or property damage neither expected nor intended from the standpoint of the insured.

Occurrence Policy

A type of liability policy in which a insurance provider is liable for any claim which occurred during the policy period regardless of how far in to the past it occurred. This is the traditional type of liability policy but has lost favor because of lawsuits being brought years after the fact. Large liability risks are typically covered by claims-made policies which are responsible only for claims submitted during the covered policy period.

Open Enrollment
