Subrogation If your item that is insured has been stolen and it is found after you received compensation it now belongs to the insurance company. If you want your item back you will have to pay back the money to the insurance company.
Contribution If you have the same item insured with more than one insurance company you will only get paid once.
Consequential Loss Insurance If a business has consequential loss insurance, the insurance company will pay them for loss profit while they are closed.
Public Liability Insurance The insurance company will pay money to any member of the public who is injured or killed while on the business premises.
Fidelity Guarantee Insurance The insurance company will pay the business owner money if one or more employees steals from the firm or does anything dishonest that causes them to lose money.
Non- Insurable Risk Sometimes the insurance company will refuse to insure some risks because they might cost them too much money if the loss was to occur.
Exclusion Clause Sometimes an insurance company will agree to insure something but will list certain situations when the insurance will not be paid, e.g scuba diving with sharks.
Policy Excess Sometimes when a loss occurs the insurance company will not pay you the full amount of the loss and you have to pay some of the loss yourself.
