What Is General Liability Defense?

General liability legal defense involves representing clients in occurrences that qualify for defense under a commercial general liability (CGL) insurance policy. CGL policies protect businesses from financial loss for certain types of liability for non-professional negligent acts. Under commercial general liability policies, insurers have a duty to defend the insured against covered claims and to pay damages the insured is legally obligated to pay because of a personal injury or advertising injury caused by a covered offense.

How Do General Liability Claims Arise?

General liability claims for damages can arise from a variety of business situations involving all types of personal injury, premises liability, property damage, or economic loss. Our attorneys have successfully defended against a range of liability claims. Examples of cases we handle include:

  • Automobile accidents
  • Slip and falls
  • Product liability
  • Commercial Accidents
  • Commercial trucking accidents
  • Toxic torts
  • Premises liability
