Often times our commercial clients question the difference between general liability coverage and professional liability coverage. Basically, both coverages are designed to cover a business from liability.
First we need to start out by explaining what exactly these two different coverages are.
General liability: This can be titled as a general liability policy or business owner’s policy. It is designed to cover a business against liability issues that occur on their premises, as well as their products and operations.
Professional liability: This policy covers the business from liability issues resulting from rendering or failure to render professional services. Often times a professional service is defined as a work or service in which a person needs special training to perform.
So which coverage do you need?
There is not always a clear answer as to the difference between general and professional liability. This often times results in both professional and general liability being provided by the same carrier. Any of our agents here at Community Insurance & Associates will be able to help you find the appropriate coverage for your business. We offer business insurance packages that can include business owners policies (BOP), workers compensation, general liability, professional liability, commercial liability, and group benefits.
