There are good reasons to consider General Liability insurance from AIG

Why businesses need General Liability cover

Without this essential cover there would be no protection from the potentially enormous costs of legal fees and payouts resulting from an accident or injury caused by the business’ activities. While these could ruin the company, it would be equally unfair if an injured party unable to get fair compensation.
