Who needs General Liability insurance?

- Anyone who wants to rent commercial property could be required to have coverage as part of their commercial lease.
What does General Liability cover?
General liability insurance protects you from unexpected expenses related to many of the most common types of accidents that can affect your business and lead to lawsuits:
- Injuries to people who are not your employees
- Damage to property you don’t own
- Accusations of libel or slander
Business Owner Policy (BOP)
A business owner’s policy (BOP) combines two important types of business insurance general liability insurance and commercial property insurance into one package that is usually less expensive than buying the coverage separately.
General liability insurance can help pay for medical expenses if your business is held responsible for an injury to someone who is not an employee, as well as legal costs if they sue your business. It can also help cover the costs if you or an employee accidentally damage someone’s property.
Commercial property coverage helps pay for business goods, gear and inventory and damage to structures and provides business income after a covered event.
BOP insurance has additional benefits:
- You save money by bundling two policies into one
- You get coverage that’s tailored for small businesses like yours
- You can easily manage your coverage, add additional insureds, and share certificates online.
Workers’ compensation provides a safety net for you and your employees after a workplace injury. It can help cover expenses for medical treatment, lost wages, and other costs.
It’s an essential component of your small business insurance package that protects you and your employees from financial harm. You’re required to purchase coverage in most states as soon as you hire your first employee.
Do I need Workers’ Comp if I am self-employed?
A common misconception about workers’ compensation is that it’s only needed when a business has employees. In fact, many self-employed workers, sole proprietors, and independent contractors purchase coverage for the financial protection it provides or to meet contract requirements with clients.
If you don’t have workers’ comp and you are injured at work, you also might not be covered by your personal health insurance. It’s important to read your policy documents carefully to make sure you are protected.
If you need to quickly obtain coverage to satisfy a client, bid, or professional license requirement, you can instantly access your certificate of insurance as soon as you purchase a policy.GET A QUOTE
