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:
- Property damage: A bookkeeper was working in a client’s office on the client’s computer. She accidentally spilled a cup of coffee on high-end printer, ruining it. The client made a claim for the cost to replace the printer. General liability insurance could protect bookkeepers against third-party claims of bodily injury, associated medical costs, and property damage.
- Bodily injury: An engineer is giving a site tour to a client. Despite being instructed to wear a hard hat on the job site, the client does not, and incurs a head injury. The engineer is sued for the medical costs associated with the client’s injury. General liability insurance could protect engineers against third-party claims of bodily injury, associated medical costs, and property damage.
- Slander: An employee at an IT consulting firm went to a bar after work. After a few drinks, they began talking loudly about an executive at a client company. The comments were overheard by associates of the executive, so word got back to the executive, who sued the consulting company for slander. General liability insurance could protect IT consultants against third-party claims of defamation and slander, property damage, and associated medical costs.

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 travel agent was hired to book a company’s convention in another city. She reserved a block of rooms at a nearby hotel. Upon arrival, the convention attendees discovered that part of the hotel was under construction and were subject to a great deal of noise and disruption. The company sued the travel agent. Professional liability insurance protects travel agents against claims of negligence and will appoint an attorney to defend them, if needed, even if they haven’t made a mistake.
- Sexual misconduct: A female therapist is treating an adolescent male client. She realizes that he is developing a crush on her, so she tells him that he should see a different therapist. He reacts angrily, and files suit against the therapist, saying that she behaved inappropriately toward him. Professional liability protects social workers against claims of sexual misconduct and negligence and will appoint an attorney to defend them, if needed.
