General Liability Insurance in California

Starting a business takes a lot of time and effort, not to mention the financial cost involved. Having put so much into it, the last thing you want is for your business to be financially damaged by a lawsuit or even worse having to go out of business.  Every company – no matter what it does or how successful it is, no matter how big or small, new or old – should be protected by a general liability insurance policy. It is in many ways the most basic business insurance coverage available.

A general liability insurance policy protects your business, and ultimately you and your assets, by covering you for accidents or property damage, if a lawsuit is filed and you or one of your employees are found to be liable.

Of course, no business owner wants the stress of going through a law suit. We can’t plan ahead enough or put enough safe guards in place to completely eliminate all the risks of doing business. None the less, there are many things you can do to help reduce the chances of a claim or lawsuit being filed against you:

§  Set a high standard for quality control of your product or service.
§  Maintain company records and keep them up to date.
§  Provide quality training for your employees.
§  Develop a good set of safety procedures that incorporate the safety of visitors on your business premises.
§  Place a strong emphasis on customer service – a happy customer is less likely to file a trivial claim.
