General Liability Insurance for Attorneys

As you build customer relationships, you’ll likely visit their homes or meet with people at your office. For this reason alone, you’ll need to look into a general liability policy. This essential coverage — also known as commercial general liability (CGL) insurance — protects your business from claims and lawsuits related to third-party accidents, property damage, and bodily injury.

General liability usually covers:

  • Bodily injury
  • Third-party property damage
  • Personal and advertising injury
  • Medical expenses
  • And more

General liability insurance usually does not cover:

  • Damage to your own property
  • Professional services
  • Workers compensation or injury to your employees
  • Damage to your work
  • Expected or intentional injury or damage
  • And more

If you’re planning to hire employees at your law firm, you’ll need to check your state’s requirements for workers compensation insurance.
