Lawsuits can arise at any time and can be devastating without proper coverage.

Commercial Liability insurance, also known as General Liability insurance, safeguards businesses from legal action due to bodily harm, property damage, or other losses that occur during normal operations. These claims can be expensive without the right coverage.

Features of Commercial Liability insurance

No business is immune to property damage or bodily injury claims. SECURA and our independent agents tailor our coverage to meet your unique needs.

Medical Payments coverage

Medical Payments coverage protects your business from medical expenses with no deductible or co-pay, including follow-up visits, specialist referrals, and prescriptions, regardless if you are at fault.

Defense costs

How your Commercial Liability coverage defines defense costs can have a significant impact, so it’s important to know whether your policy includes compensation for legal defense outside the limits or within the limits of liability.

Defense costs inside the limit simply means that defense costs are deducted from the total policy limit, resulting in less coverage available for any settlement payout.

Defense costs outside the limit means your defense costs are covered outside the policy limits, leaving your policy limit intact for covering any settlement payout.

It’s important to discuss the differences and availability of each type with your independent insurance agent.

Personal and Advertising Injury

Personal and Advertising Injury coverage provides protection against injury to another person or organization resulting from many different offenses, such as false arrest or imprisonment, wrongful eviction, libel or slander, unintentional copyright infringement, or claims of stealing or using third-party ideas in your advertising.

What doesn’t Commercial Liability insurance cover?

Commercial Liability insurance does not protect you from business-related auto accidents, employee injuries or illness related to their work, damage to your business property, legal costs as a result of errors in your professional services, and claim costs that are higher than your liability policy limits.

The cost of Commercial Liability insurance can vary depending on the number of employees, business sales, the state, city, and population where your business is located, the type of industry you serve, and the coverages that are needed.
