Each policy covers different kinds of liabilities. Specifically…
- General Liability Insurance (sometimes called "slip-and-fall" insurance) covers accidents that happen at your restaurant and injure your guests or other non-employees. For instance, if a customer gets burned by hot coffee and sues your restaurant, GL is the policy you'll turn to when you get word of the claim.
- Professional Liability Insurance covers mistakes made in the delivery of your work. For example, a Professional Liability policy may address a lawsuit alleging your catering business used chicken stock at a vegetarian fundraiser. If the client lost potential donors because of the debacle, they could sue for their financial damages.
