PROTECTING YOUR BUSINESS: THE CGL SOLUTION

4

In today's "litigation society," you face lawsuits that could cripple your bottom line - or even put you out of business - based on anything from a fire on your premises to an allegation of libel by a competitor.

Commercial General Liability (CGL) insurance provides financial protection against damage or injury caused by something that your business did, or perhaps didn't do.

Your CGL policy covers a variety of exposures:

  • Premises and Operations Legal Liability pays for injuries or property damage on your premises, as well as those that occur outside your place of business.
  • Products and Completed Operations Legal Liability covers injury or property damage resulting from someone using your products, or real or alleged faults as a result of work your business has completed.
  • Fire Legal Liability pays for injuries and damage from fires for which your business is responsible or that started due to your negligence.
  • Personal and Advertising Injury protects your business against litigation alleging libel, slander, or invasion of privacy.
  • Host Liquor Legal Liability will pay for lawsuits from hosting a party or special event at which you serve alcohol and intoxicated people cause injuries or property damage.
  • Medical Payments covers bills when your customers, suppliers, or visitors suffer bodily injury on your premises, or resulting from your operations offsite.
