General Liability Insurance for IT Consultants

General liability insurance — also known as commercial general liability (CGL) insurance — covers costs associated with third-party accidents, property damage, and bodily injury. Without this type of coverage, your IT consulting business may be responsible for those costs.

For example, if you are working on a clients’ site and accidentally knock over a floor lamp (and damage it), general liability would have you covered for the repair or replacement costs. That’s why we recommend that IT consultants carry general liability insurance, as it can provide their business with essential protection.

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

Workers Compensation Insurance for IT Consultants

If you have any full-time or part-time employees, including subcontractors, your business needs additional protection in the event of workplace injuries. Most states require businesses to carry a workers compensation policy when you hire your first employee, so be sure to add it to your coverage if you have a team.

Coverages include:

  • Medical Payments
  • Lost Wages
  • Rehabilitation expenses
  • Death Benefits

Here’s how workers compensation insurance works: If an employee gets injured on the job, this insurance can cover medical costs and lost wages. If an employee is out due to illness, workers compensation offers your business financial protection.
