General Liability Insurance

General Liability Insurance Explained

Businesses are sued every day for injuries that allegedly occurred on their property. If you are a business owner, you can be exposed to this kind of liability. A liability lawsuit can cost you thousands of dollars to defend and settle. To protect yourself and your business, you need to get general liability insurance.

 

How Does It Work?

A general liability policy is the most common type of business insurance. It provides you with a financial safety net if your business is sued over injuries that occur in your business. Also, other companies may require you to have general liability insurance before you can do business with these companies.

A general liability policy provides coverage for your business in several areas:

• Bodily or personal injuries that occur on business property
• Property damage caused by business operations or products
• Damages caused by libel, slander, or a Copywrite violation

Any reasonable legal expenses, such as the attorney’s fees, court fees, and financial business losses while you are defending your case are covered. Settlements, judgments, and the plaintiff’s medical expenses are also covered by a general liability policy.

A general liability policy does not provide comprehensive coverage. It does not cover any of your personal property that you use for your business, injuries to clients at your place of business due to your negligence, injuries to your employees, or any professional services provided to your client. You will have to supplement your general liability policy with another liability insurance policy to cover these other areas.

Major Benefits

Small businesses across many industries need general liability insurance because there is a high risk of bodily injury or property damage. If you own a business in the construction industry or have a business that frequently uses heavy equipment, then you are a good candidate for this type of insurance. Every business is unique, so talk to your insurance broker to figure out the right amount of coverage for your needs.

Shannon is the Best. Make sure you call "Young Insurance" because she use to work for Look Insurance but after she branched out and away from Look, they took her telephone number away and if you call that number a snotty guy will answer and won't give you any information on how to get in contact with Shannon. He seems that he doesn't like the fact that she is doing very well and offers a better insurance rate. So keep that in mind when looking her up.

Best of the best. Shannon is a gem that has gone above and beyond for my wife Lori West over the years. She just helped me get the best priced policy and is so very pleasant to work with. Larry also spoke with me and helped with our concerns. A. Young is by far the best. Thank you!

I highly recommend them.I had occasion to change over my home insurance to A.Young Agency, and once again I was met with exceptional service by Joe LeDuc and Christine the office manager. They make one feel like they are family and go above and beyond to make one’s experience easy and stress-free. I highly recommend them.

Shannon is fantastic. She always takes time to acknowledge me when I stop in. The team there is friendly and I feel like they, although very professional, have a very personal investment in their business. 🥰

Everything we buy in life has three parts to it.Service, price and quality. Normally, one can only expect two out of three. Very rarely do you ever get the total package. A Young Insurance is an insurance company~ that has excellent service , excellent quality and excellent prices! 10 🌠
