What is General Liability Insurance?

General liability insurance is one of the most common and helpful commercial insurance policies. This insurance covers losses when your business is liable for third-party injury, loss, property damage, and lawsuits. However, this liability must have arisen due to the business's daily operations to be eligible for a general liability claim. For example, if you run a grocery store and your customer slips off oil leaked on the floor, you are liable. In such a case, general liability insurance will come to your rescue. <br>To know more about general liability insurance, click here: <br><br>https://quotezebra.com/general-liability-insurance/
