Commercial Insurance: General Liability Coverage
Business owners often face significant risk of being sued based on several factors. Having a general liability policy reduces a business's exposure to the risk of being sued or held liable for injuries or damages the business may cause.
As a general rule, this liability coverage protects a business against losses resulting from property damage, bodily or personal injury that may occur on your business property or arise from business operations.
Our agency offers multiple quotes from multiple commercial carriers to ensure you receive the best coverage at the best rate.
General Liability insurance policies pay losses arising from real or alleged bodily injury, property damage, or personal injury on your business premises or arising from your operations.

In Tennessee, if you have more than four employees, you are required to carry Workers’ Compensation coverage. For B2B companies, proof of Workers’ Comp is often required. Our agents are available to provide proof of coverage quickly or secure additional coverage to work on government, university, hospital, or out-of-state projects.
This coverage provides payments to injured workers, without regard to who is at fault for the accident, for lost time from work and medical and rehabilitation services. It also provides death benefits to surviving spouses and dependents and covers work related illnesses.
