General liability insurance is required by law in Florida for most business owners, not-for-profit organizations, and government entities. It protects the insured from substantial financial losses resulting from unforeseen negligence or occurrences in their daily operations. General liability insurance is designed to protect against direct and indirect losses, which are the actual damages incurred in an unforeseen event and consequential losses, such as an interruption of business. While insurance policies are tailored to a commercial business’s individual needs, most general liability insurance policies cover property damage and medical expenses for injuries. Accidents and injuries can often occur without warning in an establishment or a third-party location for business-related activities.
