Liability Insurance

Commercial Liability Insurance

Liability insurance is designed to protect the business against losses if they are negligent or liable for damage, injury or loss to another's property, reputation, or health. Typically, damages, legal defense fees and settlement charges are paid by the insuring company when a claim is filed against the business.

The following types of coverages are commonly packaged for business:

Liability Insurance

Bodily Injury – Liability coverage may pay the affected person or firm for the cost of care, the loss of services and restitution for death that results from an injury.

Property Damage – In the event your business causes damage to, or causes the loss of use of someone else's property, property damage coverage may pay for the value of the physical damage to the property or the loss of use of that property.

Products and Completed Operations

A policy may provide coverage for your company's completed products or services. If an injury occurs due to the use of your products or services provided, the policy would pay for the resulting damages and any legal expenses up to the policy limits.
Contractual Liability
General Liability coverage extends to any liability you may assume by entering into a variety of different types of contracts such as a building lease.
Liquor Liability
If you're not in the business of manufacturing, distributing, selling, serving or furnishing alcoholic beverages, the policy may protect you in case someone claims you are legally liable for a liquor-related accident.

Hired Auto & Non-Owned Auto

Hired Auto & Non-Owned Auto coverage if requested is typically added as an endorsement on a policy. If their are no vehicles owned by the company this coverage will meet the contract requirement for Commercial Auto coverage.
Hired Auto coverage replaces or augments the liability coverage offered by auto rental agencies for example.
Non-Owned Auto coverage protects your company in the event that your company is sued as a result of an auto accident that you or one of your employees has in a personal vehicle while on company business.
Medical Payments
If someone is injured by you or at your business site, the policy may pay for medical and funeral expenses incurred, up to policy limits, within one year of the accident . For example, if a customer tripped and fell on your premises and had to be hospitalized.

• Publishing inaccurate information that slanders or libels a person or organization.

• Publishing material that violates a person's right of privacy.

• Falsely arresting, detaining or imprisoning someone.

• Maliciously prosecuting someone.

• Wrongfully evicting someone.
