General Liability Insurance Information
General liability insurance is a fundamental aspect of risk management for businesses. Whether your business is large or small, understanding the importance and benefits of general liability insurance is crucial in managing risk and ensuring peace of mind in an unpredictable world.
What Is General Liability Insurance?
General liability insurance protects businesses against a range of risks and liabilities. It typically helps cover claims related to third-party bodily injury, property damage, personal injury (such as defamation or slander) and advertising injury. General liability insurance may help cover legal expenses, settlement costs and judgments arising from lawsuits or claims against the insured party.
What Does General Liability Insurance Cover?
General liability insurance may include the following three coverages:
- Third-party bodily injury coverage may assist in covering medical expenses when an individual sustains injuries within your business premises or due to your business activities.
- Third-party property damage coverage can aid in addressing costs associated with damage to someone else’s property for which your business is liable.
- Personal and advertising injury coverage can help pay legal expenses in cases where you face a lawsuit related to damaging a third party’s reputation or making false statements.
It’s important to note that general liability insurance doesn’t cover every liability claim. Your insurance provider may recommend additional coverage options (e.g., professional liability insurance) based on your business operations.
