There is no such thing as a "comprehensive" general liability policy. It is "commercial" to differentiate it from personal-lines coverage. It is commercial general liability p…olicy, or CGL; a generally standard group of coverages, exclusions, limits. This is different than a manafest policy where commercial coverages are added in a customized fashion. A comprehensive policy would be one where a business owner (BOP) might purchase with a pre-set group of coverages, exclusions, and limits. Thanks Actually, the term "Comprehensive General Liability" was replaced in 1986 with the term "Commercial General Liability." They are essentially the same policies.

Personal Liability insurance is purchased by individuals and is normally included as part of a residential insurance policy, such as a Homeowners, Condo or Tenants package. It… provides the insured with protection against lawsuits from third parties arising from the ownership and/or occupancy of the residence, including the personal actions of insured persons (eg. a visitor to the residence slips and falls on the front walkway due to a build up of ice/snow). General Liability insurance is the common abbreviation used in the industry to refer to "Commercial General Liability" insurance. A Commercial General Liability (CGL) insurance policy is purchased by a business and provides protection against claims by third parties for Bodiliy Injury and Property damage arising from the operations of the insured. Example: ABC Construction Inc. wins a contract to construct a new office building. During construction one of ABC's employees drops a hammer which hits a passing pedestrian on the head. The pedestrian sues ABC Construction for his/her injuries. ABC's general liability insurer will defend ABC in the lawsuit and pay any judgment which may be rendered against ABC (up to the policy limit). Hope this helps.
