What is the difference between general liability and professional liability?
At a 10,000 foot view general liability is slips, trips and falls meaning bodily injury and/or property damage to a 3rd party.
For example, a woman walks into your store and slips on a puddle, breaks her hip and sues your business for the medical damage. That’s General Liability.
Professional liability is protecting your business against bad advice or guidance. Any time you give professional opinion, advice or guidance you are opening yourself up to a professional liability claim.
