Commercial General Liability

Business owners purchase commercial general liability (CGL) policies for protection against claims of bodily injury or property damage. Commercial general liability is the insurance that protects business owners and their assets from lawsuits.

If a customer is injured on your business premises, for example, your commercial general liability policy should cover the claim for damages. But would it?

Business owners who have been sued by injured people often find that their commercial general liability policy doesn't protect them as they believed it would. Without insurance, a large verdict or settlement in an injury lawsuit could be ruinous to a business.

If your firm's insurance company has denied or unreasonably delayed payment of a claim against your commercial general liability insurance policy, please contact Pillsbury & Coleman, LLP in San Francisco for experienced legal counsel.

Our lawyers also represent clients whose insurance companies failed in their duty to defend the policyholder in a lawsuit.

We will thoroughly investigate your case to determine whether your insurance company acted in bad faith by denying or unreasonably delaying payment of your claim or by failing to defend you when it was obliged to. If so, we will file an insurance bad faith lawsuit and, where appropriate, seek punitive damages in addition to compensation for actual damages suffered by your business.
