What Does General Liability Insurance Cover?
General liability insurance covers non-professional negligent acts. This means that it covers normal accidents that may occur during everyday activity for the business that is not related to a professional or specialized service.
General liability insurance covers three main areas:
- Bodily Injury: Bodily injury provides compensation to victims who are injured on your business’ property, such as helping with medical bills, disability benefits and more.
- Property Damage: Property damage provides compensation for those whose property is damaged on your business’ property or due to the business’ everyday activities.
- Personal and Advertising Injury: Personal and advertising injury covers claims against your business concerning libel, slander, copyright infringement, invasion of privacy, theft of an advertising idea and more.
The other side of this insurance covers the legal expenses a business may face due to the above claims. This includes coverage for court fees, settlement costs, defense costs and more.
