In the insurance world, exposure means more than the result of your fly being down, or the plumber working on your pipes. Exposure relates to your potential risk that’ll cause a loss which requires filing a claim.
Insurance companies will measure your exposure based on numerous factors. These factors play a role in the final premium. These exposures put you at risk for a loss. If your risk is too high, insurance companies could deny coverage.
