What is the difference between general liability vs professional liability insurance?
A CGL policy or commercial general liability policy is the most basic form of liability insurance for a business, which will cover lawsuits related to claims of bodily injury or property damage to third-party, as well as advertising injuries like slander, libel, and copyright infringement. It is strongly recommended you acquire this type of insurance policy, especially if you interact with the public often.
A professional liability policy covers the expenses that come with a lawsuit based on claims of error in your professional services or advice. This may include errors like oversights, misinformation, missed deadlines, etc.
