What

What is General Liability?

General Liability Insurance provides coverage for claims against your business involving bodily injury and property damage arising from your business operations, services, or products.

Facts

It is common for defense costs to exceed the cost of damages awarded in a general liability trial.
Slips/falls and on-premises altercations are the most common incidents that result in liability claims.
Beware of social media. Did you know you may be liable for comments and photos posted on your social media accounts?
Defense wins championships: Frivolous lawsuits are not uncommon. Your general liability policy will respond with defense for frivolously filed GL lawsuits.

Are you covered?

One of the largest underinsured exposures in the hospitality industry is Assault & Battery Coverage. Many insurance policies limit or exclude this coverage. However, our carriers do not.

Why
