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: A substance abuse counselor rents office space in a professional building. A young patient becomes very upset during her counseling session and jumps up out of her chair, knocking it over and fractures her arm. General liability insurance protects marriage and family, mental health, and substance abuse counselors against third-party claims of bodily injury, associated medical costs and property damage.
- Property damage: A market research consultant was giving a presentation at a client’s site. During the presentation, he knocked an expensive projector off the conference table, breaking it. The client made a claim to recover the cost of the projector. General liability insurance protects market research consultants against third-party claims of bodily injury, associated medical costs, and property damage.
- Medical expenses: A building inspector needed to hire a consultant to help with a project. He took a candidate on a tour of the job site which was still under construction. The consultant tripped on a piece of equipment, sustaining injuries which required hospitalization. General liability insurance protects building inspectors 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: A nail technician used a new product on a client’s nails. The client had a severe allergic reaction to an ingredient in the product and sued for emotional distress, bodily injury and loss of wages, as she was unable to return to her job as a court reporter for several weeks. Professional liability insurance protects nail technicians and beauticians against claims of negligence and will appoint an attorney to defend them, if needed, even if they haven’t made a mistake.
- Discrimination: A property manager was sued for failing to rent an apartment to a prospective tenant, who claimed that they were turned down because of their race. Professional liability insurance protects property managers against claims of discrimination and will appoint an attorney to defend them, if needed, even if they haven’t made a mistake.
