Generally speaking, when policyholders buy liability insurance, they are buying two categories of insurance coverage within the same insurance policy: (1) defense cost insurance coverage; and (2) indemnity insurance coverage (e.g., insurance coverage for settlements, judgments and other costs for claims brought against the policyholder).
