Preguntas Frecuentes

Liability insurance coverage helps protect you from costly general liability claims that can happen during normal business situations, such as:
  • You or your employees representing a client
  • Meeting with clients face to face
  • Working on or with another person’s property
  • Using third-party locations for business activities
  • Advertising your business
You may also need this coverage if your clients request it. Many clients want to confirm you have general liability coverage before they sign a contract with your business. You can prove you have general liability insurance with a certificate of liability insurance.
General liability insurance covers a wide variety of incidents but doesn’t cover every kind of claim. Depending on your small business, you may need different types of coverage to give your business more protection. A general liability insurance policy won’t cover commercial auto accidents, employee injuries or illnesses, damage to your business property, professional mistakes or errors, purposeful wrongdoings or illegal acts, or any claims that cost more than your liability limits. It also won’t cover claims related to data breaches or lost income if your business can’t open because of covered property damage.
State laws don’t usually require business owners to carry general liability insurance. But it’s still a good idea to have this liability insurance coverage. If a customer sues your business and you don’t have coverage, it can put your business’ finances and your personal assets at risk.
It's important to understand your state’s general liability insurance laws. Work with a local insurance agency or our dedicated small business insurance team to help you choose the right business liability insurance.

  • Judgments and settlements from a customer or client’s lawsuit
