Implications of Cancelling your Product Liability Insurance

Products Liability is an occurrence-based wording. This means, the insurance needs to be in place at the time the incident occurred for there to be a valid claim.

If you cancel your insurance today and an incident is notified and/or occurs tomorrow for a product or service you provided last week, you will not be covered. Read more on this here.
