What is a General Liability Insurance?

General liability insurance or general liability is the collective term for all liability insurances that cover operational liability risks. Since professional activities in the service sector are mostly carried out in offices, the insurance is also often referred to as office liability or business and general liability. In principle, General Liability Insurance offers protection if you claims are brought against you by a third party (e.g. customer or principal) for personal injuries, property damage and the resulting financial loss (consequential financial loss). The General Liability Insurance especially covers damage that occurs in the office, on site at the customer’s, on business trips or at trade fairs and exhibitions.

Difference between general liability and professional indemnity

The term ‘professional indemnity’ is to be understood as an overarching term for indemnity insurance that covers the professional liability risks of a self-employed person or freelancer. Depending on the industry and risk situation, professional indemnity insurance can include a general liability insurance (coverage for personal injuries and property damage as well as consequential loss) as well as financial loss liability insurance (coverage for pure financial losses).

At exali.com, the general liability insurance is usually offered in combination with financial loss liability insurance in the basic coverage so that all relevant risks and the resulting types of damage are covered.

Quick Facts about General Liability

General Liability Insurance - for Whom?

In the IT, media, service and consulting sectors in particular, even small errors can cause major damage to customers or other third parties. That is why general liability in combination with liability insurance for financial losses is one of the most important insurances for the self-employed, even if it is not required by law for every industry (compulsory insurance). A general liability insurance covers the liability risks of the respective industry and thus protects the existence of the freelancer and the survival of the company.

Protection Against ‘Human Errors’

In the complex modern world of work under the sign of the World Wide Web and digitisation, it is not surprising that professional errors occur. In contrast to the past, however, the risk has increased that a small ‘human error’ can cause much greater damage in the digital world. Freelancers and the self-employed are often more extensively liable than they suspect. In the worst case, damages put the private assets or the corporate assets of a corporation at risk. General liability insurance makes these risks calculable.

Personal Injuries and Property Damage

At exali.com, General Liability Insurance is part of the basic coverage in order to provide comprehensive insurance for personal injuries, property damage and consequential losses. The causes of damage range from damage caused by incorrectly performed work to damage to rental property and to orders on site at the customer’s or on a business trip. However, since financial losses also occur in many service professions (over 90 percent of cases depending on the industry), exali.com also offers financial loss liability as an important add-on.

Deductible Amount

The deductible (also called excess) depends on the industry for which the General Liability Insurance is taken out. The average deductible for property damage is 250 euros per damage event. No deductible is to pay for personal injuries. Which deductibles apply to you is shown transparently in the premium calculator on exali.com.

Which Damages does the General Liability Insurance Generally Cover?

The General Liability Insurance from exali.com offers comprehensive coverage for the following types of damage:

  • Property damage: This concerns the damaging, destruction or loss of an item. Example: An IT employee damages the server's motherboard during maintenance work.
  • Personal injuries: This includes injuries or damage to the health of people. Example: During a photoshoot, a person is injured by falling lighting equipment.
  • Consequential financial loss: This concerns consequential losses following personal injuries or property damage. Due to the damaged motherboard from the first property damage example, the server cannot be rebooted for 1.5 days. The result is a loss of sales for the customer (consequential damage).

What Risks are Covered by General Liability Insurance?

General liability insurance generally insures operational risks through owed services or products as well as the operation of an office, an agency or a law firm. When looking at the private sphere, it can best be compared with private liability insurance, with the difference being that in these cases risks of the business environment are covered. These are, for example:

  • Personal injuries and property damage due to faulty service provision
  • Damages on business trips, at trade fairs, exhibitions or events (worldwide)
  • Damage to rented office space or event rooms (rental property damage)
  • Damage in the organisation and execution of seminars or training courses
  • Damage caused by the professional operation of aerial drones up to 5 kilograms (including camera)
  • Damage of items in the care of the insured that are rented, leased or borrowed for up to 6 months
  • Personal injuries and property damage at customer appointments
  • Product liability damage (guaranteed properties)
  • Loss of customer keys and code cards
  • Damages to third-party property due to activities
  • Environmental liability damages
