What is General liability insurance for Contractors all about?

General liability insurance also known as Commercial General Liability (CGL) protects your contractors business from another person or business's claims of bodily injury, associated medical costs and damage to property.

Bodily injury: A customer comes to your job site to check out your work. He trips over an extension cord and falls, breaking his wrist. A general liability insurance for contractors could cover his medical costs.

Property damage : You are renovating a room in a client’s home and as you set up your ladder it falls and smashes your client's table and TV.  Your insurance may cover the subsequent claim up to your General Liability insurance policy's limits of liability.

Personal injury: One of your employees is at lunch. He talks to the owner of the shop about one of your clients in a false and unflattering way. The client learns of this discussion and sues for slander. We will cover the subsequent claim, up to your General Liability policy's limits of liability, and pay for an attorney to defend you if necessary.
