The personal and advertising coverage included in your insurance policy is divided into two components. These are two types of liability: personal injury liability and advertising liability.
Each of these signifies the following:
This category includes liability for deliberate torts such as libel, slander, wrongful eviction, false arrest, and invasion of privacy.
This category includes liability for harm caused by accusations of theft of advertising concepts, business practices, or copyright infringement.
Each of these two coverage components, which are usually combined, offers businesses far greater coverage than the standard physical injury and property damage claims.
What Is Coverage For Personal and Advertising Injuries?
Personal and Advertising Injury Coverage will reimburse your firm for legal bills, judgments, and settlements incurred as a consequence of lawsuits alleging the following offenses:
- Arrest, custody, or incarceration without probable cause. This offence is defined as restraining someone against their will and depriving them of their personal liberty in an illegal or unreasonable manner.
- Persecutory prosecution is initiating criminal or civil legal proceedings against another person without probable cause and with the goal to do damage. The defendant must establish that the suit was resolved in his or her favour.
- Invasion of the right to private occupation via wrongful eviction, intrusion, or invasion. This infraction involves the landlord’s, property owner’s, or lessor’s wrongdoing. The behaviours include unlawfully evicting a tenant from their premises in violation of local or state regulations, unlawfully invading a tenant’s premises, or breaching a tenant’s privacy by interfering with their right to inhabit a premises.
- Libel, slander, or disparagement violation include verbal defamation (slander), written or graphic defamation (libel), and denigrating another’s products, goods, or services (disparagement).
- Publications that infringe on one’s privacy encompasses any oral or written publication that infringes on an individual’s right to privacy. Common privacy violations include the unauthorised use of a person’s face or name, intrusion into a person’s private affairs, the use of publicity to cast someone in an unfavourable light, and the disclosure of private information about someone.
- Infringement of copyright, trade dress, or slogans in advertising. This is an infraction if you utilise another’s copyright, product or package look (trade dress), or slogan in an advertisement without their consent.
Personal and advertising injury coverage can shield you from claims that are not immediately evident. Unlike bodily injury and property damage claims covered by your normal liability policy, personal and advertising injury coverage claims typically involve non-physical, reputational injuries.
