A Commercial General Liability (CGL) policy protects your business from financial loss should you be liable for property damage or personal and advertising injury caused by your services, business operations or your employees. It covers non-professional negligent acts. Understanding this coverage is an important first step in managing CGL risks.
Here are just a few examples of situations in which your business could be responsible for paying various costs, such as medical and legal expenses, as well as compensatory and punitive damages:
Bodily Injury and Property Damage Liability
Personal and Advertising Injury
Personal and Advertising Injury liability protects an insured against liability arising out of certain offenses, such as:
Infringing on another’s copyright
Use of another’s advertising idea
Wrongful eviction, entry or invasions of privacy
