Why you need General Liability Insurance
General liability insurance gives you the peace-of-mind that your business assets are protected against risks or unforeseen events. If a third-party alleges property damage, injury, or bodily harm, you won’t have to worry about your construction business assets being depleted by medical bills, court costs, settlements, or judgements.
In the high-risk construction industry, safety and protection are part of the job. General liability insurance is one way you can protect your business and keep your assets where you want them. You work hard to build your business. General liability insurance works hard to protect it.

General Liability Insurance coverage does vary by Profession, Location and Limits
The location and business trade plays a factor in the cost of your general liability policy. If you do business in an area where the risk is greater, you may be able to manage your costs by adjusting your limits to reflect your actual need. For example, a roofing company will do higher-risk projects than say a handyman. Quotes will vary by business depending on the trade, the size of the business, the state your business is located in, and the limits/deductibles selected.
