General liability protects your business from damages caused by bodily injury or property damage for which your business is found to be legally liable.

 

What Does General Liability Cover?

A typical general liability policy provides coverage for claims of bodily injury or other physical injury, personal injury (libel or slander), advertising injury and property damage as a result of your products, premises or operations, and can be offered as a package policy with other coverages such as property, crime, automobile and more.

As a safeguard against liability, general liability enables you to continue your normal operations while dealing with real or fraudulent claims of negligence or wrongdoing. General liability policies also provide coverage for the cost to defend and settle claims.

 

How Much Coverage Does Your Business Need?

The amount of coverage that your business needs depends on three factors:

  • Perceived risk – consider the amount of risk associated with your business operations and functions. For instance, if you manufacture heavy machinery, you would generally need more coverage as compared to another organization that manufactures stuffed animals.
  • Where you operate your business – if you operate in a state that has a reputation for rewarding high damages, then you may wish to purchase higher limits of liability.
  • The type of products you manufacture – if you manufacture a dangerous product, you may want to carry higher limits of liability.

Testimonial

"Yesterday, Sindi completed the new policies for our 3 properties and two automobiles. We appreciate being able to have all the coverage with one company and it helps to have the umbrella coverage on all the properties as well as the automobiles. Sindi completed everything in a timely manner and the work was done as promised; despite it being her first day back from vacation. I found her to be knowledgeable, willing to follow up on specific questions and able to quickly get additional detail information and willing to make minor adjustments. Overall, I found her to be a very competent insurance professional and a very pleasant person to work with. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the Neckerman Agency and Sindi in particular to my friends and business associates. Thanks to you as well for recruiting, selecting and retaining competent staff."
