You can purchase either an "occurrence policy" or a "claims-made policy." More frequently used "claims made" policies, protects the Business Owner only for the period while the policy is effective. Acts occurring within a specific time period (prior-act coverage period) can be covered by Prior-Act Coverage. An "occurrence" policy covers the Business Owner for claims made months or even years after the incident. Even if the claim is reported later, the Insurance Company reviews and pays for any claims made resulting from an incident that took place during the coverage period. Occurrence policy premiums are usually higher than claims-made premiums.
