What is General Liability Insurance?

Good question.

A General Liability or Public & Products Liability policy wording states:

General Liability

“Your legal liability for Personal Injury, Property Damage or Advertising Injury caused by or arising out of an Occurrence happening in connection with Your Business other than Products Liability.

Products Liability

“Products Liability” means Your legal liability for Personal Injury and/or Property Damage caused by or arising out of any Products or the reliance upon a representation or warranty made at any time with respect to such Products.

So what does all that mean?

Well put simply, if you are deemed negligent and your negligence causes injury to someone, or damages someone’s property due to your business activities then your General Liability policy will respond.

What does Liability Insurance Cover?

General Liability insurance provides cover for your business and its liabilities to third parties for personal injury or property damage.

The trigger for cover under your General Liability policy is that your business must be found to be negligent. Your negligence is deemed if you have breached your duty of care. The breach of this duty of care could potentially make you liable for damages.

You owe a duty of care to pretty much everyone.

If you own a business then it would be reasonable to expect that you would receive clients or visit clients, also during this process you would more than likely come into contact with the general public. During these visits you have a duty of care or a responsibility to these visitors to ensure their safety and the safety of their property.

It is for this reason that you should ensure your liabilities are fully protected by insurance and the best way to achieve this is by taking out a General Liability or Public & Products Liability insurance policy.
