  1. General liability insurance can protect a business from monetary damages and legal proceedings, paying for legal defense and potential settlements.
  2. General liability insurance is an investment in protecting your business and its assets.  The cost of the insurance premiums is worthwhile in light of the “litigious society” that we live in, according to the Small Business Administration (SBA).
  3. There two major factors that help in determining your insurance needs: the type of business and the perceived risk associated with operating that business.
  4. General liability insurance utilizes up to the maximum amount of your policy in case of an insurance claim.  It behooves you to review your current policy’s coverage and assess whether it is high enough for your type of business.
