What is General Liability Insurance?
General liability insurance is a liability policy designed to cover common accidents and lawsuits that could face your business. This insurance is one of the most common and important forms of liability designed to protect your business.
What Does General Liability Insurance Cover?
Coverage under general liability insurance falls into three main categories:
Medical Payments and Property Damage
General liability insurance can cover medical bills someone else may face if they are injured on your business’ property. For example, say someone trips and falls in your restaurant. General liability insurance can pay for expenses such as emergency services, procedures, doctor’s visits and more.
It can also cover replacement and repair costs in case someone’s property is damaged due to the course of everyday business. If someone’s expensive jewelry is broken at your indoor trampoline park, for example, this insurance can help replace or repair the damages.
Personal and Advertising Injury
Personal and advertising injury coverage covers claims against the business concerning libel, slander, malicious persecution, theft of an advertising idea, copyright infringement and other incidents. This can cover legal expenses concerning these types of claims, as well.
Another part of general liability insurance helps protect the business in case of a general liability accident. If a lawsuit is filed against your business concerning a general liability accident, this insurance can provide compensation for legal expenses such as court fees, defense costs, settlement costs and more.
