Professional and General Liability: What's the difference?

Professional Liability Insurance

Coverage limits

Hiscox tailors your professional liability coverage to your specific business needs and offers policy limit options up to $2,000,000. Higher limits can be considered upon request, if required by contract.

Why is it required?

Professional liability insurance protects you and your business from claims regarding negligent performance of your professional services, and will defend you even if you haven’t made a mistake, but are faced with unfounded accusations by a client.

General Liability Insurance

Coverage limits

Most contracts require at least $1,000,000 worth of general liability coverage. Hiscox offers policy limit options up to $2,000,000. Higher limits can be considered upon request, if required by contract.

Why is it required?

General liability insurance (CGL or GL insurance) protects your business from third party claims for bodily injury, associated medical costs, and damage to someone else’s property.
