Insuranceopedia Explains Business Liability Insurance

Business liability insurance basically protects a company from the expenses of litigation. For business owners, any form of lawsuit may cost them major expenses that could put their company in a difficult financial situation. Therefore, many often purchase commercial liability insurance as financial protection from these expenses and pay for the legal defense and other associated costs, such as settling a claim with the injured person or damaged property owner. The three most common types are public liability, product liability, and professional liability.
