How to Purchase General Liability Insurance
There are two ways to purchase general liability insurance coverage:
- As a standalone policy—General liability insurance can be purchased as a standalone policy for businesses of any size, and it typically has relatively low premiums given the coverage it provides. Even small businesses can be liable for damages resulting from accidental harm caused during regular business activities.
- As part of a business owner's policy (BOP)—A BOP typically includes three main policies: commercial general liability insurance, commercial property insurance and business interruption insurance. BOPs offer these essential coverages at a discounted rate. However, BOPs are not suitable for every small business, and insurers determine eligibility. Working with your agent is crucial to determine if your business could benefit from a BOP.
