Why CGL coverage – aka commercial general liability insurance – is so important.
One of the reasons why you may be looking for insurance nearby is because you’re buying or renewing commercial coverage. It doesn’t matter where you are located, CGL coverage is important. Essentially, your commercial general liability insurance policy is the foundation of you coverage. Here’s why:
With the exception of Quebec, common law in all provinces establishes that business owners owe a duty of care to the public. Because accidents do happen and injured people or parties may allege that:
- A duty of care was owed
- That duty of care was breached

In the unfortunate event that one or more of the above situations apply, a lawsuit may results. A suit may involve people, parties and/or their lawyers alleging that a business was negligent and, as a result is responsible for damage compensation.
