Legal Liability Insurance
While an NVOCC of freight forwarder does not operate the vessels by which ocean transportation is provided, there are still liabilities your may face. The NVOCC is a shipper in its relationship with an ocean common carrier (i.e. responsible for loss, damage or delay of the goods). The NVOCC uses its own Bill of Lading and makes arrangements with port agents, local carriers and others for movement of goods, and therefore can be held legally liable for losses.

1. Do I need liability insurance?
Liability insurance is an important form of coverage for businesses of all sizes, particularly in the service industry. That’s because it provides financial protection in case you are held responsible for causing harm or damage to someone else. Without liability coverage, you would be personally liable for the costs associated with legal defense, settlements, or judgments, which can be financially devastating.
Anyone who engages in activities that could potentially result in harm to others should consider liability insurance. This includes individuals, businesses, and professionals such as freight forwarders, customs brokers, contractors, and consultants. Even if you believe you have taken every precaution, accidents or mistakes can still happen, making liability coverage important.
2. What does liability insurance cover?
Coverage will vary depending on the policy type. However, liability insurance can cover the costs related to legal defense, settlements, or judgments if you are found liable for injuries, property damage, or financial losses suffered by someone else. It may also cover medical expenses, legal fees, and other expenses associated with a liability claim.
It’s important to note that while general liability insurance covers many common risks, it may not cover all types of liabilities. Depending on the nature of your business, you may need additional coverage such as professional liability insurance, product liability insurance, or cyber liability insurance to address specific risks. Consulting with our insurance professionals can help you determine the right insurance coverage for your unique needs.
3. How much liability insurance do I need?
The amount of liability insurance you need depends on various factors, such as the nature of your activities, the potential risks involved, and the industry standards. The licensed insurance professionals at Magaya Insurance Services are the best-placed experts to assess your specific situation and help you determine optimal coverage limits.
4. Does liability insurance cover intentional acts?
No, liability insurance typically does not cover intentional acts. It is designed to protect against accidental or negligent actions. If you deliberately cause harm or damage, it is unlikely that liability insurance will cover the associated costs.
5. Can I be sued even if I have liability insurance?
Having liability insurance does not prevent you from being sued. However, it provides you with financial protection by covering the costs of legal defense, settlements, or judgments if you are found liable.
6. How do I file a claim under my liability insurance policy?
To file a claim, you should contact us as soon as possible and provide detailed information about the loss or damage. We will guide you through the claims process, which may involve providing documentation, estimates, and supporting evidence.
7. Can I combine liability insurance with other types of insurance?
Yes, businesses often combine liability insurance with other types of coverage, such as commercial property insurance, workers’ compensation insurance, or errors and omissions insurance. Bundling policies can provide comprehensive protection and potential cost savings.
