General Liability Insurance
General liability insurance (CGL) is protection for your business in the event that someone makes a claim against it. On a daily basis, your company touches the lives of many people; whether that's your contractors, clients or customers. And, at any given point, one or several of these people could claim that your business has caused them harm, injury or loss and initiate legal recourse. Travelers will help you prepare and protect against these types of risks through our wide-range of general and business liability products.
