Policy limits determine how much your insurer will pay on covered claims. A per-occurrence limit is the maximum your insurer will pay for a single incident, while an aggregate limit is the maximum your insurer will pay on any claims during your policy period, typically one year. Higher limits cost more – and provide better coverage.
Most printing and copying businesses (95%) choose general liability policies with a $1 million per-occurrence limit and a $2 million aggregate limit. As your small business grows, you may need to expand your policy limits.
