Having Florida general liability insurance in place may help protect the assets of your business from the financial costs associated with lawsuits claiming compensation for personal injury or property damage. This type of insurance protection is essential in our increasingly litigious culture and the coverage a business needs typically depends mainly on two factors: the level of risk that is associated with your business, and the location of your business.

Some types of business operation have a greater exposure to general liability risk than others; for example, a building contractor with multiple sites under construction is more likely to be near the high end of the risk scale than the owner of a small country convenience store. A business that has a high perceived risk of general liability clearly needs a higher level of insurance coverage.

The place where your business operates also influences the level of general liability coverage that is needed. Businesses operating in regions that have a history of high damages awards for personal injury may need a higher level of general liability coverage than businesses in other areas.

To ensure that you carry adequate insurance coverage for general liability it’s important to consult a local insurance professional.
