What Does Small Business Insurance Cover?
General liability insurance handles lawsuits concerning bodily injury, property damage and advertising injury that arise out of everyday business operations.
- Bodily Injury: Bodily injury liability helps with medical expenses for victims that suffer injury on the business’ property. For example, if a customer in your grocery store slips and sprains their ankle, this liability insurance can help with the cost of medical bills as well as protect the business from a lawsuit regarding the injury.
- Property Damage: Property damage liability helps with the costs associated if a third party suffers property damage on behalf of the business.
- Personal or Advertising Injury: Personal or advertising injury covers incidents concerning libel, slander, copyright infringement and more.
General liability is not the same as professional liability. Professional liability covers professional negligence that occurs as a result of specialized services while general liability covers incidents of non-professional negligence.
In Alabama, workers compensation insurance is required for most businesses with at least one part-time or full-time employee. Workers compensation covers injuries and offers benefits to employees that are hurt on the job. It can provide compensation for:

- Temporary or permanent disability
- Death benefits (funeral services, casket costs, cremation services, etc.)
There are some exceptions to workers compensation requirements depending on your industry.
