What Is General Liability Insurance?
Our general liability insurance coverage is designed to offer protection for your business against claims made by another person. Such claims can include bodily injury, advertising injury, property damage, and personal injury.
To understand which type of insurance coverage your business requires, included is a more comprehensive breakdown of our general liability insurance:
This covers damage to property including a rental facility or any other type of property.
Contract Liability Coverage:
This covers liability in case you are found to have breached a contract, be it with your landlord, other businesses, or any other party.
This coverage protects your business in case you are involved in a lawsuit, whether you are at fault or not.

General Liability Insurance for Business
Though general liability insurance is often combined with property insurance in the Business Owners Policy (BOP), you can obtain general liability (GL) for business as a stand-alone product. For instance, if you are a contractor, you don’t need a BOP, but rather a general liability for business which protects your operations against lawsuits. Having adequate general liability insurance is crucial to protect your assets and business.
General Liability Insurance Cost
In a 2014 study published in Forbes, the average cost for small business GL insurance stood at $575.16.
