Who needs general liability insurance?
General liability insurance is often combined with property insurance in a Business Owners Policy (BOP), but it's also available to many contractors as a stand-alone coverage.
Small Business Owners
As a contractor or small business owner, you need some form of business liability insurance to safeguard your livelihood. A single accident could result in a lawsuit that you might not be able to handle. A great way to protect against this is to make sure you have liability coverage that matches your level of exposure.
Some employers or clients might also require you to carry a certain amount of general liability before you can work for them.
General liability insurance cost
In 2019, the national average monthly cost for general liability insurance through the Progressive Advantage® Business Program was $53. Remember, this is only an average and isn’t necessarily what you’ll pay. Your rate depends on the specific features of your business.
