Common General Liability Insurance Questions
What Does General Liability Insurance Cover?

Why Does a Business Need General Liability Insurance?
No matter how safely you try to operate your business, and how comprehensive a risk management plan you have, you cannot eliminate every risk that something will go wrong in your company and harm someone else. General liability insurance is necessary to have for this very reason. Your coverage can make sure you don’t have to suffer significant financial setbacks just because a mistake in your work caused a problem.
How Much General Liability Insurance do I Need?
A liability lawsuit could cost your business thousands, if not millions, of dollars in settlements and legal fees.
