Do I need General Liability?

If you own a business, you need to protect yourself and your business with a General Liability policy. General Liability insurance protects you from claims resulting from injuries and damages. Your typical General Liability policy has limits of $1 Million per incident with a $2 Million aggregate. Aggregate means how much the policy would pay out for an entire year. So, you could have two incidents that would cost you $1 Million each and your policy would cover those claims. General Liability also has additional coverage for personal advertising injury ( which includes libel, slander, and copyright infringement), property damage, completed operation (property damage or third-party injuries once contracted operations cease), and medical payments.

Rating Factors and Risk

Risk factors may affect your premiums and coverage. Some of the factors for a General Liability policy are job type, expected total sales, number of employees, payroll, subcontractor costs, and location. The type of job you do is the biggest rating factor. Jobs that have a higher risk, such as roofing, are rated higher than jobs such as handyman because there’s a greater risk of injury and damage. No matter how big or small, every business should have a General Liability policy.

Frequently asked questions

How much does General Liability Insurance Cost?

Price heavily depends on what your profession is and what kind of jobs you are doing. Higher risk jobs such as performing roof work will cost more than an interior painter or photographer. The best way to gauge how much a policy may be for you would be to get a free quote with us.

Does General Liability cover property damage?

General Liability insurance covers expenses related to property damage, but only to property that doesn't belong to you.

For example, if you are working at a clients house and you accidentally damage their tv. Your general liability insurance would help cover the cost of fixing it or replacing it.

Equipment Protection is a coverage we offer that can be added to your General Liability insurance that helps cover repair and replacement costs for your gear.

Is General Liability Insurance required by law?

No, not usually. However, some states require General Liability Insurance in their licensing criteria for construction contractors or developers. Even though it is not required by law, it is still important when taking on jobs to protect your company from unforeseeable events.
