General Liability Insurance

General liability insurance is one of the most common types of insurance that businesses carry.

General liability insurance helps protect small business from claims involving property damage and bodily injuries. Also referred to as business liability insurance or commercial general liability insurance, this type of coverage helps cover costs such as attorney fees and medical expenses for incidents involving services, products, or operations. General liability insurance can also cover advertising and personal injury claims for issues including libel, slander, and copyright infringement.

If your small business sells products, offers services, rents space, or advertises online, you likely want coverage. And whether your business serves customers on job sites, at their property, or at your own location, general liability coverage could protect your valuable commercial and personal assets.
