What is meant by insurance liability?
Liability insurance is defined as a form of insurance that provides protection from third-party lawsuits. If you're held liable for causing a person or company's financial losses, your insurance will cover some legal expenses.
What is an example of a liability insurance?
For example, if someone gets hurt on your company's premises and decides to sue you because it's alleged that the incident was due to your negligence, expenses arising from legal proceedings (defence or investigation costs) would be covered by your liability insurance.
What are the liabilities of the insurer?
Liabilities, or claims against assets, are divided into two components: reserves for obligations to policyholders and claims by other creditors. Reserves for an insurer's obligations to its policyholders are by far the largest liability.
