General liability insurance for retailers

Don't let risk sell you out

The only problem with running a busy store is keeping up with the orders. Or is it?

Customers walking in and out all day are great for business, but they also have the potential to cause problems for even the most diligent storeowner.

No matter how prepared you are, accidents happen. Customers can trip over, heavy items can fall, your products could damage someone or something.

Retailers' general liability insurance helps protect you. If something goes wrong, and a person or their property is damaged, your coverage pays for your legal defense and any compensation you're liable for.

It's a good buy for you and a goodbye to risk.

What is general liability insurance?

  • It's protection for your business against the cost of any claims made by a client for bodily injury, property damage or personal injury.
  • It's what you need if you often visit clients' place of work or home.
  • You'll also need it if you work from home and have client's over, or if you use third party locations for business activities.

What am I covered for?

  • Bodily injury - while in your store, a customer trips on a rug and sprains their ankle, making you legally liable for the injury.
  • Property damage - you accidentally rip a customers' pants while helping them try on a pair of shoes.
  • Personal injury - an employee is overheard talking about a client with a shop owner in a false or unflattering way. The client finds out and sues for slander.
