Additional Information

Professional liability insurance policies typically exclude coverage for nonpecuniary relief, because it is often impossible for an insurer to compel either an insured or a third party to act or refrain from acting in a certain manner. However, most versions of this exclusion provide coverage to defend against claims requesting nonpecuniary relief.
