Make sure your business is protected.
No matter how hard you may try to prevent them, accidents happen, even in businesses. While most accidents can quickly be taken care of, some accidents may take a lot more time and money to resolve. Often times, small businesses may not always have the finances to bounce back from a lawsuit of millions of dollars.
General liability insurance is designed to cover accidents that occur on company property. It can help a business carry the burden of a lawsuit and other expenses related to an accident.

General liability insurance covers three distinct areas:
Bodily Injury: This covers medical expenses as well as legal fees related to a third-party injury on the property.
Property Damage: This covers incidents of property damage that occurs out of everyday business activity.
Personal/Advertising Injury: This coverage covers personal and advertising injury such as libel, slander, copyright infringement and invasion of privacy.
Most general liability policies usually at $1 million, but your business may require higher limits, depending on the likelihood of lawsuits, size of the business and nature of possible lawsuits.
General liability insurance protects both the business and victims in the event of an incident that results in bodily injury, property damage, and personal or advertising injury. The policyholder pays monthly or yearly premiums for coverage. Once a claim is filed and approved, then the policyholder will get financial assistance in paying for certain expenses related to the incident.
General liability insurance prices may vary based on location, the size of the business, the claims history and industry, the deductible and applicable coverage limits. For a $1 million policy, businesses could possibly pay between $300 and $1,000 a year for general liability insurance.
