What Does General Liability Cover?
General Liability Insurance is often confused with Workers Compensation. General Liability does NOT cover a business’s employees in the case that they were injured on the job. It will only cover a business’s liability to a 3rd party that was injured by that business. However, it will not cover the injuries made to the employees, that is workers compensation which would need to be added to the insurance plan. It would insure the employees with medical care and some lost wages in the case they are unable to work due to the injury.
“What If I Work from Home”?
Working from home does not mean there is no need for commercial insurance. The risks taken may be different than the ones faced while working in a business. However, there are liabilities that need to be covered working from home. Whether it’s driving different clients, Owning and using special equipment, or a professional in-home office. It still requires professional liability insurance. Commercial insurance brokers are professionals that will ensure a business is well protected.
Many customers believe that they must pay for insurance full up-front. However, this is not true! Most policies offer a “Pay as You Go”. Meaning you pay at least 25% or more of the insurance policy in order to get the coverage and then continue to pay in 9 monthly payments. This can be an excellent option for cash-strapped or seasonal companies.
