Commercial general liability insurance, or CGL, is coverage that will protect your business in the event that you are sued. It is often used to cover claims against your business for bodily injury, personal injury, or property damage. For those who rent or lease their workspace, it may also provide coverage-depending on the circumstances-if you are responsible for damage to that workplace.

Commercial general liability insurance is coverage that will protect your business if you are sued. Typical examples include if a customer is injured at your place of business, or say an employee damages property at a client's site.
Without a commercial general liability insurance policy, you leave yourself and your business vulnerable to lawsuits. It is, unfortunately, a necessary cost of doing business.
There are four main coverages included in the standard Commercial General Liability (CGL) policy:
Basically, if your company, your product, your work, your employees, or anything associated with your company causes physical injury or damages property, you could be held legally responsible. If responsible, and you have a commercial general liability policy, your coverage will pay for the compensatory damages. Compensatory damages are damages that are meant to put things back the way they were financially.
2. Personal Injury Liability
While most people think of personal injury as physical injury this is not the case with a CGL policy where it actually means damage of a person's character, reputation or position in the community as a result of libel or slander. This coverage protects you if you're accused of libel or slander, not the other way around.
3. Medical Payments
This part of your CGL policy provides coverage that pays minor medical expenses from an accident that happens at your company's premises or as a result of your company's operations-even though you may never be held legally liable for the accident.
4. Tenants' Legal Liability
Suppose you don't own the space where you've set up shop and rent your office, shop or retail space. If you are held legally responsible for causing a fire, explosion, smoke damage, or other damage caused by fire protection (like sprinklers going off) then this coverage will pay the compensatory damages. This applies only to damages of the rented premises - not the property (i.e. product, inventory etc.) that you may personally own.
