General Liability insurance

No matter how careful the business or how stringent their policies, accidents do happen. In today’s litigation-driven society, a minor mishap like a slip or a trip can result in a major lawsuit. Small, unavoidable risks may have huge implications, which is why you need a policy that protects you against them.

General Liability is an essential element of your risk management armoury.

What is General Liability insurance?

General Liability insurance covers against third-party claims for injury or damage to someone else’s property. It is designed specifically to protect the financial assets of a company in the event of a lawsuit. It doesn't provide cover for damage to your own property.
