A business owners policy (or BOP) and a general liability policy have many things in common. For example, they both provide protection from financial liability for many types of incidents. This includes accidental damage to customer property and injury to non-employees on the policyholder’s property.
Product liability, libel, slander, and copyright infringement can also be covered by both types of policies. However, a business owners policy provides all the protections of a general liability policy plus more.
A business owners policy is also referred to as property and liability insurance. That’s because in addition to the risks that the general liability portion of the policy covers, property and liability insurance also provides protection for:
A BOP can also provide add-on coverage for things like tools and equipment or money and securities, which would otherwise require you to have inland marine and crime policies. Bundling all of this into one policy saves you time and effort in the management of your coverage. It can also save you money.
