Protection against the risk of damages.
When you look around your business, it’s obvious that you need to protect against damage to your buildings, equipment, and staff. Less obvious–but no less important–is the risk of damage to other people and businesses, which could leave you paying out large sums if you are held liable.
What general liability insurance does and does not cover.
General liability insurance mainly covers bodily injury to people outside of your business and physical damage to their property. A few exceptions to this principle include data loss and reputation damage (for example, if one of your business’ staff members defames a client). It’s important to note that general liability coverage doesn’t apply to cases where you are sued for giving inadequate professional advice. Errors & omissions insurance (E&O) can help to protect your business from that specific type of risk.
When is general liability insurance required?
Your business needs general liability insurance if you ever meet clients (at your business or theirs), or have any physical access to their equipment. Additionally, general liability insurance may be a requirement before some businesses will sign a contract with you.
What’s the difference between General Liability and Professional Liability Coverage?
It is a common misconception that general liability insurance protects your business from all risks.
In fact, general liability coverage protects your business against bodily injury claims, such as a slip and fall, or property damage claims where you, or an employee of yours, accidently damages property of others.
Professional Liability insurance on the other hand helps protect your business against errors or mistakes that happen on your behalf lead to a financial loss for your client.
Both general and professional liability insurance coverage will help your business cover the expensive costs associated with claims against your business.
