It is a fact that any business that hires employees and welcomes customers through the doors is liable for any injury that might happen to them while they are on the property. General Liability Insurance protects the business interest, if a lawsuit occurs because of an injury due to negligence. Liability insurance might cover medical payments, product liability, premises liability, employer’s liability, employee’s liability, and many other areas of law.
General Liability Insurance
Often, a company is covered by insurance and there is an assumption that they are protected in the event of an injury to a customer or an employee. The fact is that a number of insurance company’s might refuse to honor the policy because of certain factors related to the accident. Consequently, the insurance company might openly refuse to represent the business owner in a court of law. This has occurred to business owners more often than many people might know.
General Liability Insurance Importance
The business purchased the general liability insurance to handle such personal injury claims filed against the company because of physical injuries, property damage, or even medical cost due to something that happened on the property. The insurance also covers any type of injuries that occurred due to the operation of company machinery or company products. Most assuredly, any company that does not carry liability insurance is placing their company at severe financial risk.
