What is general liability insurance?

General liability insurance

General liability insurance is one of the most common policies for tech companies. It covers basic risks involving customers and fulfills the terms of commercial leases and contracts.

When do technology companies need general liability insurance?

General liability insurance protects your business from the most common risks that technology companies face:

  • Bodily injury
  • Property damage
  • Advertising injury

It’s typically the first policy that technology professionals purchase, and it’s often required in the terms of a commercial office lease or a client contract. (Some clients might require an errors and omissions policy, too).

This policy protects against lawsuits over injuries and property damage involving a client, delivery person, or anyone else who doesn’t work at your company.
