Bodily Injury & Property Damage Liability
If someone injures themselves on your property, a general liability policy could provide coverage, even in the event of a lawsuit. Let's say a guttering company's employee drops a gutter off the roof edge and hits a pedestrian walking below. Bodily injury coverage takes care of the pedestrian. Or take this case: an employee in a painting or construction business accidentally leaves water running, causing substantial water damage to a customer’s home. Liability coverage will cover the cost of stripping out flooring, repairing drywall, and erasing the damage to both the customer’s home and your credibility.
