What is Business Liability Insurance?
Business liability insurance protects your small business from claims against property damage, bodily injury, or other losses incurred while running the business. It is also known as general liability insurance or commercial general liability insurance.
Business liability insurance is essential to a business because of the high financial cost of business liability claims. Without this coverage, your business will have to pay for these costs out of pocket, which can cripple operations.
What is Covered by Business Liability Insurance?
If your business gets sued, business liability insurance covers the legal fees, court-ordered judgment, and settlements. These are covered up to the policy's limits.
Typically, there are two policy limits you can get. They include:
The pre-occurrence limit is the maximum amount CIIG or any other insurer will pay for a single incidence. The aggregate limit is the most we will pay during the policy period.
Your general liability policy from CIIG will cover the most common business liability risks. However, there are other common and essential liability insurance policies you should consider.
