TLIE Basic Lawyers Policy

The Basic Policy generally provides less comprehensive lawyers’ liability insurance coverage than the Regular Policy, and therefore, generally costs less than the Regular Policy.

Policy Limits

The only Policy Limits offered under the Basic Policy are:

$100,000 per claim / $300,000 aggregate
$200,000 per claim / $600,000 aggregate
$500,000 per claim / $500,000 aggregate
$1,000,000 per claim / $1,000,000 aggregate

All Basic Policies have a $1,000 deductible, which comes into effect only if a claim is paid.

Claim Expense Allowance

The Basic Policy covers defense costs up to the policy limit. But unlike the Regular Policy, it does not cover any defense costs in excess of the policy limit.

DTPA and Other Additional Damages

The Basic Policy specifically excludes coverage for additional damages under the Deceptive Trade Practices Act, punitive and exemplary damages, mental anguish and emotional distress damages. The Basic Policy also excludes coverage for securities work.
