Insurance Definition: DIRECTORS AND OFFICERS LIABILITY INSURANCE

By Compuquotes Team on March 27th, 2008

DIRECTORS AND OFFICERS LIABILITY INSURANCE:

Definition:

  • Covers directors and officers of a company for negligent acts or omissions, and for misleading statements that result in suits against the company, often by shareholders. Directors and officers insurance policies usually contain two coverages: personal coverage for individual directors and officers who are not indemnified by the corporation for their legal expenses or judgments against them - some corporations are not required by their corporate or state charters to provide indemnification; and corporate reimbursement coverage for indemnifying directors and officers. Entity coverage for claims made specifically against the company may also be available.
