General Liability Insurance

Protect Your Company from the Unknown with a General Liability Insurance Policy

As a business owner, the last thing you want to worry about is losing hundreds of thousands of dollars from an accident. Unfortunately, accidents do happen for many businesses. If someone is injured or their property is damaged from your business or employees, then it could result in huge financial losses.

A good general liability insurance policy will protect your business from these types of claims. It can also be customized to cover supplemental payments for attorney fees, court costs and other expenses associated with a claim or the defense of a liability suit.

Want a custom insurance policy for your business?

Your Cornerstone insurance agent can create a customized business insurance policy for you to include different types and amounts of coverage.

The following coverage is a snapshot of what is usually included in a general liability line:

  • Bodily injury: if a customer slips and falls while on the premises of your business, then you could be held liable for the injury. This would also include if a customer was injured by your product or service.
  • Property damage and data loss: if you or your employee accidentally dropped your client’s computer and caused damage or data loss, then a general liability policy would cover the claims.

Please keep in mind that most general liability policies do not include employee-related injuries, commercial auto accidents, professional mistakes, or any intentional acts. These may require additional insurance coverage.
