General Liability Insurance
Protect your business from liability claims
A general liability insurance policy — also known as business liability insurance — protects your business from claims that result from normal operations. Business liability insurance is coverage that can protect you from a variety of claims including bodily injuries, medical payments, property damage, and others that can arise from your business operations.
At Vaughn Insurance Professionals we can help small business owners and contractors get the coverage they need with a general liability insurance quote.
Who needs general liability insurance?
