Is there cover for legal liability arising out of the loss of documents?

Yes. The policy does not specifically deal with loss of documents, but liability that would otherwise be covered in terms of the policy is not affected by the fact that loss was triggered by a loss of documents.

An exception is Carriers’ Liability and Warehousemen’s Liability where there are exclusions on claims arising out of the loss of documents (specifically securities for money). 

General Liability
