What Does Territorial Limits Mean?

In liability insurance, territorial limits pertain to the geographical areas or locations outside of which an insurance policy may not provide coverage to the insured. For instance, a liability insurance policy providing payment for compensation to a policyholder suffering a personal injury or property damage while conducting their business may be valid only within the “territorial limits” stipulated in the contract.
