Why do you need general liability insurance?
Our general liability insurance coverage also called commercial general liability insurance, protects your business from third party claims for bodily injury, associated medical costs and damage to someone else’s property.
You should consider this coverage if you or your employees:
- visit a client’s place of work, or clients visit yours.
- have access to a client’s equipment. (i.e., a client’s server).
- write or speak about a client’s business.
- use third-party locations for any business related activities.
- are required to have general liability insurance before entering into a contract.
For example, while visiting a client’s premises, the client trips over your briefcase and gets injured – your business may be liable. Your fault or not, our general liability coverage will protect your business against covered claims by paying defense costs and any damages up to your policy limit.
