What is General Liability Insurance?
If you want to ensure that your small business has financial protection from unforeseen claims, general liability insurance is a smart investment. While it’s not always required by law, it may be required by certain contracts or lease arrangements. With a general liability policy from biBERK, it’s easy to get protection from the costs of:
When customer property is damaged by an employee, your coverage may pay for a replacement. For example: Your contractor accidentally sets fire to a building they are working in, and repair costs will exceed $150,000. Now, you may be liable to pay for the damages and construction costs. With small business general liability insurance from biBERK, you would likely have help covering the costs of those damages.
If someone other than an employee is injured on your property, this coverage can take care of medical expenses plus legal expenses and damages.
If products developed or sold by your business harm people or property, this coverage can pay legal expenses associated with product liability lawsuits and medical expenses if an injury occurs.
Libel, Slander, and Copyright
This coverage can pay for lawsuit expenses from personal and advertising injury. Advertising injury can include disparaging another business in your advertisements, stealing an advertising idea, and more.
Why do You Need General Liability Insurance?
It’s just common sense—and good financial sense too. Even one lawsuit for bodily injury or property damage is often enough to bankrupt a small business. General liability insurance provides you with the coverage you need to pay for most damages, injuries, and medical costs related to accidents that could happen to your employees or customers. Small business liability insurance also helps cover legal fees and settlements if you’re sued.
Protection for Your Business
Let’s say you own a restaurant. One morning, a delivery driver slips and falls on a wet floor in your kitchen, breaking his arm. He sues the restaurant for $75,000 to pay for medical costs, wages, and suffering. If you have a general liability policy with adequate coverage, you won’t have to pay all of those costs yourself.
