General Liability

A dog groomer has a first-time appointment with a 2-year-old poodle. During the session, the dog grows more anxious as time passes. When the poodle’s grooming services are complete, it is escorted by leash back to its owner, but bites another customer on the way. The customer sustains an injury and seeks medical attention for the bite. General Liability insurance can help the grooming business pay for costs associated with injury up to the available policy limit.
