Your general liability policy is one of the most important you will select as a business owner. It takes only a quick look at the news to see the array of claims consumers have made against companies in recent years. Many of these lawsuits ended in favor of the claimant. Without good liability coverage your company could wind up paying these claims out of pocket. Take the time to make sure you have selected liability coverage that meets all of your needs and potential risks.
No matter what type of business you run, you need to protect your interests with the right insurance policy. Every company needs a variety of different types of insurance. Some of these policies are the same no matter what kind of business you have, while others might be specific to your industry. One of the coverages that remains the same across the board is general liability coverage.
A general liability policy gives you coverage for defense from lawsuits and to pay out financial claims when negligence on your part can be proven. It prevents your company from facing potentially serious financial damage due to property damage, injuries, or any other claim that can be proven to be a result of your company’s actions or products.
