WHAT IS GENERAL LIABILITY?

During the course of your business, there may be instances where accidents happen, and other people or their property is damaged by your company. General Liability is an opportunity for you to transfer the potential damages your company may have to pay out for those accidents that cause bodily injury or property damage to others. With the proper insurance in place, you can rest and continue business knowing that you have transferred your General Liability Risk to a carrier through an agency that you trust.
