- A person is injured within your premises
- Property is damaged while doing your business
- Libel or Slander
All of the scenarios above are possibilities when doing business. However, there is something you can do to protect yourself. To reduce your risk, one of the most important aspects of any business is having the right liability insurance.
What is Commercial General Liability Insurance?
In cases your company is sued by a third party, your Commercial General Liability Insurance will kick in. Like the scenarios mentioned above, all these can result into a lawsuit. Commercial General Liability Insurance will help by covering the legal fees associated with this. Also covered are the settlement payments brought about by these proceedings.
How else can CGL Insurance protect you?
In cases of bodily injury, voluntarily paying for medical attention can help dissuade the complainant from filing charges. These medical procedures can be covered by your liability insurance as well.
If you are renting your space and you cause damage to the said property, this can also be covered by your liability insurance.
Though, not everything can be covered. Claims associated to the following are not included.
- Environmental Damage
- Professional Liability Claims
- Product Liability Claims
You will not be able to control of everything, and a certain degree of risk will always be present. But now you know there is something you can do about some risky aspects of owning a business.
