This can include injuries sustained in an accident, damage to the property of another caused due to the actions of your business or one of its employees, and personal and advertising injury claims. General liability coverage not only financially protects a business from judgments that may be made, but any potential settlements that may be reached. It also can cover the legal costs associated with any liability claims against a business.

Commercial Property Insurance

This coverage protects a businesses’ hard assets like furniture, computers, equipment, inventory and property. It will usually provide coverage for a variety of calamities like fires, theft, vandalism and more. This protection is valuable whether you own or lease your business space and will restore property to its pre-calamity condition.
