General liability coverage and benefits in Georgia
General liability insurance protects your small business if someone outside your company sues for bodily injury, advertising injury, or property damage. It comes standard in a Business Owner’s Policy, and is one of the most important coverages business owners in Georgia can purchase—especially since you’re more likely to be sued than you might think: 40% of small businesses will face a liability claim in the next ten years. And, if a lawsuit happens to you, the cost of going without liability coverage could be severe.
Imagine this: while visiting your business, a customer trips over a chair and injures their arm. They laugh the injury off and leave your building, but then—2 weeks later—you get an official-looking letter. The customer who hurt themselves is now suing you for $100,000. To fight that claim on your own would be incredibly expensive and time-consuming, not to mention the cost of paying the actual financial settlement. Without general liability coverage, all of these costs will fall directly on your business—whether you can afford to pay them or not.
You get the picture. General liability coverage could quite literally save your company. And, while liability insurance isn’t legally required in Georgia, it’s often required by big clients before they’ll sign a contract with you. (And that’s fair, right? They don’t want you suddenly going out of business because of a lawsuit.)
All in all, general liability coverage is a good idea for almost every small business. Get a 60-second estimate on Georgia general liability insurance here. (Seriously, it only takes a minute and there’s no obligation.)
