What if someone sues my restaurant?

When your restaurant is sued, you're almost immediately on the hook for some type of cost. For instance, you'll need to quickly hire a lawyer to respond to the complaint. Even if you settle the suit quickly, you might end up spending a couple thousand dollars during the process.

Depending on the type of lawsuit, your restaurant's liability insurance policies can help you pay for legal defense fees, settlements, judgments, and more. For example, if a customer is injured on your property and sues you for medical expenses, an adequate General Liability policy can cover the claim.
