General Liability Insurance
General Liability Insurance
Why is it Important?
Commercial General Liability, or CGL, is insurance to cover business liabilities like bodily injury, injuries on the business premises, property damage caused by the business’ operations, etc.
Good liability risk management can reduce the chances that your business will be sued, but it can never eliminate the risk entirely. You or a member of your organization can make a mistake that injures someone or damages property. Your mistake could harm the reputation or interfere with the privacy of a customer, client, competitor or member of the general public. When such injuries occur, you may be legally liable to pay damages to someone who suffers a loss due to your actions or inaction.
Depending on the degree of harm and the number of people injured and/or value of property damaged, a lawsuit could bankrupt your business. Even if your organization is ultimately cleared of any wrongdoing, a determined plaintiff can keep you tied up in legal proceedings for a long time, entailing significant cost to defend yourself. Liability insurance pays the cost of your defense and protects your assets.

We Are Ready When You Are.
There are two main types of CGL insurance:
- A claims-made policy covers claims no matter when the loss occurred.
- An occurrence policy covers claims when the loss occurs within a specific, predetermined period of time.
As with most other forms of comprehensive insurance, CGL will not cover all the costs which could afflict your company. Additional coverage can be purchased to mitigate the risk of exposure to sexual harassment settlements, discrimination lawsuits, wrongful termination lawsuits, any costs associated with potential product defects and recalls, erroneous financial reporting statements, coverage for damages resulting from actions taken by officers of the company, etc.
If you own a business, you know how important it is to protect what you’ve worked so hard to build. People make mistakes, and you can never be sure what’s just around the corner. With Commercial General Liability insurance, you can be sure that you’re prepared for it.
We believe that good relationships are built with trust, honest and open communication and delivering on our promises.
