Foreign Liability


Foreign Liability Insurance

A specialty policy for an insured’s liability for foreign operations arising out of a permanent branch office, manufacturing facility, construction project, or other operation located in another country.

The commercial general liability (CGL) policy provides coverage for incidental exposures—for example, when an executive who lives and works in the United States and occasionally travels overseas for business trips. For permanent operations in foreign countries, a separate foreign liability policy is required.

Foreign Liability Insurance, for most U.S.-based organizations, covers far different risks from the legal exposures they face here at home. When companies venture into to foreign countries to do business, they can encounter a myriad of unfamiliar laws, languages and customs. Make international commercial general liability coverage the first line of defense against costly legal actions arising from events occurring outside our nation’s borders.
