What is general liability insurance?

General liability (GL) insurance protects a business against the risk of accidents like bodily injury and property damage that happen to a third party.

General liability insurance is the most essential insurance for a business. If you don’t have it and something happens while you’re on the job, one big claim could cost enough to put you out of work. With general liability insurance, you’ll have the protection you need to stay focused on building your business.

All Commercial General Liability policies are underwritten by Markel Insurance Company (NAIC: 38970) and National Specialty Insurance Company (NAIC: 22608), part of the Fortune 500 and rated A-Excellent by A.M. Best. 

What’s covered with general liability insurance?

Bodily Injury
General liability insurance coverage protects against claims of physical injury to a third party.

Property Damage
Coverage for damages to another entity’s property. If you don’t own it and you break it, general liability insurance can help.

Medical Expenses
If a customer’s injury requires a hospital visit and they want you to foot the bill, you’ll want GL on hand.

Defense Costs
If settling a claim lands you in court, GL can help you “lawyer up.”

Personal + Advertising Injury
Claims that you publicized something damaging the reputation of another party.
