Every American Business Needs General Liability
America is a litigious society, and businesses must protect themselves from the financial losses that can arise from lawsuits due to claims of accidents or negligence. General Liability insurance is a type of coverage that helps businesses guard against costs from third-party claims of bodily injury, property damage, and personal and advertising injury. Just how commercial property insurance will protect your facilities in the event of total loss, general liability protects you in the same way against lawsuits.
General Liability insurance can provide protection for a variety of situations, including slips and falls, damage caused by products or services, and legal costs associated with defending a lawsuit. Put simply: without it, your business is exposed.
