What is General Liability (GL) policy for:
GL provides coverage protecting your business from a lawsuit against you as an owner of the business for violations of General business codes, rules and regulations as well as ethics or “slip and fall” accidents
However, the most significant part of General Liability coverage is called – Product Liability coverage
What is Product Liability coverage?
While Landlords mostly care about all tenants having a GL policy, – if you really care about your business security, the most important part of any commercial policy is -Product Liability ( PL) coverage which must be at least $1,000,000 – that’s what you will be required to carry by your business contracts of almost every nature .
Product Liability Coverage relates not to what you sell –
It’s about WHAT YOU DO. How do you generate business income – is what your “PRODUCT” is.
Another words – General Liability coverage without Product Liability added to it is a very limited coverage
Product Liability is the most important part of any commercial insurance. We also suggest calling us about Umbrella Policy – which is extension of your liability limits up to 1 million or higher amount of protection.
