General liability insurance, known as Commercial General Liability (CGL), protects your business from another person or business’s claims of bodily injury, associated medical costs, and damage to property. Some examples of what could be covered are below:
- Bodily injury: While a photographer is setting up to shoot stills on a movie set, a bystander trips and breaks their wrist. A general liability insurance policy could cover the claim for medical expenses up to the policy limits.
- Data loss: An HR consultant has a client company’s payroll records on their laptop. The laptop is damaged and the data cannot be recovered. The consultant’s general liability policy could cover the costs associated with recreating the lost data.
- Damage to third-party property: A tutor goes to the home of a student. While they are working, the tutor accidentally knocks over a very expensive lamp, breaking it. The student’s parents demand that the tutor replace the lamp. General liability insurance protects tutors against third-party claims of bodily injury, associated medical costs and property damage.

Professional liability insurance, also known as errors and omissions insurance (E&O insurance), covers another person’s claims against businesses that provide professional and personal services. Some examples of what could be covered include:
- Negligence: An esthetician in a spa is talking to a co-worker about a customer in a false and unflattering way. Another customer overhears the conversation and reports it to the subject of the conversation, who sues for slander. A professional liability policy could cover the cost to defend the esthetician, including a settlement or judgment, up to policy limits.
- Copyright infringement: A graphic designer creates a logo for a client in the technology space. Several months after the client begins to use the logo, they receive a cease and desist order from a large corporation in another industry, stating that the logo infringes on their copyright. The client sues the designer to recover the costs to redesign the logo and reprint their marketing materials. The designer is protected by a professional liability policy, which could cover their costs.

Business owners policy (BOP) is a combination of general liability and business property insurance. BOP is often used to provide balanced coverage for small businesses who also want to protect their own business equipment. Some examples of what could be covered are below:
- Office insurance for business interruption: An IT consultant leaves their laptop in a taxi and it is never recovered. A business owner’s policy could cover the cost to replace the computer, up to policy limits, and keep the business up and running.
- A recruiter leaves his work computer in his car while driving to a company offsite meeting, where it gets broken into. A business owner’s policy could cover the cost to replace the computer and get the recruiter back up and running.
