Commercial General Liability

In today's uncertain world, technology and case law are constantly changing the liability landscape. This policy protection responds to exposures, some of which didn't exist 10 years ago. For example the rapid rise in the internet has dramati-cally increased the potential for libel, intellectual property and invasion of the right of privacy suits. Typical standard policies do not adequately respond to these contingencies but, CGL would likely respond to the loss.
