Commercial general liability insurance (CGL), often referred to as business liability insurance, is coverage that can protect you from a variety of claims including bodily injury, property damage, personal injury and others that can arise from your business operations. General liability insurance also usually include: personal and advertising injury, medical payments, products completed operations and fire damage to premises rented to you.
Covers medical costs and a portion of lost wages for an employee who suffers a covered work-related injury or illness. Obtaining an exemption does not releive you of your responsibility. Do not assume using 1099's or independent contractors also relieve you too. Other business insurance products exempt any would be work comp inury.
Protecting you business property is covered by two forms and can be covered with liability under one policy known as a Business Owners Policy (BOP). Business Property is what you own not building related inventory equipment etc. Business Building coverage is for the building itself with or without build outs.
