What is General Liability Insurance?
General Liability Insurance, also known as Commercial General Liability Insurance (CGL), protects you from common risks you can expect to face in your day-to-day business operations, including third-party property damage or bodily injuries.
Should you be sued, CGL also typically covers legal defense costs, regardless of the outcome of the lawsuit.
Who needs General Liability Insurance?
As a business owner, you come into contact with many third-partiers, including clients, vendors, and other businesses, who may be involved in an accident or claim your business caused them loss or damage.

- You have an office space or clients visit you at home.
- You visit your client’s office space or home.
- You have staff who conduct business off-site.
- You sell any kind of physical good or perform a physical service.
