General Liability Insurance

General Liability Insurance

Accidents can happen in a matter of seconds, but damages can cost you the business that you have taken years to build up. Commercial general liability insurance (CGL) will protect your business from lawsuits involving bodily injuries that occur within your workplace, and injuries or damages caused by your employees elsewhere.

What does general liability insurance cover?

Aon’s general liability insurance protects business against claims for:

  • Injuries to customers, employees, vendors or visitors that occur on your premises.
  • Injuries that occur elsewhere as a result of the actions or negligence of an employee.
  • Third party property damage caused by an employee.

General liability insurance is for businesses of all sizes

General liability insurance policies can be tailored to businesses of all sizes.

Even if you are operating a home-based enterprise single-handedly, you need the protection of general liability insurance because most home policies will not cover business activities. An injury to a visitor in your home office or to a delivery person at your front door may leave you liable for their claims.

Combine your general liability with other business coverages

General liability insurance is important, but it doesn’t cover all the risks your business may encounter. A bundled insurance package that is designed specifically for small business can be a cost-effective solution. For more information, see our business owner’s package and entrepreneur’s package.
