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 policy, or CGL; a generally standard group of coverages, exclusions, limits.

A comprehensive policy would be one where a business owner (BOP) might purchase with a pre-set group of coverages, exclusions, and limits.. Thanks.

What is the difference between a named insured and an additional insured on a general liability policy?
Attorneys will often say there is no difference, when it comes to extending coverage for legal liability. However, depending the specific additional form used there might be substanial differences in the portion of the general liabilty policy that is extended to the named insured versus the addition…al insured. For instance, older additional insured forms (CG 2010 11/85) extended coverage to the additional insured for "Products/Completed Operations". New forms use wording such as "ongoing operations of the named insured" that limit coverage to the additional insured to the "Premise/Operations" portion of the CGL form.. In addition, an additional insured generally has no right to:. Request policy endorsements or cancellation . Receive copies of the policy contract, other than the a/i form and a certificate of insurance . The purpose of an additional insured is to protect the rights of another party that might become legally liable for the actions of the named insured. For instance, a landlord might become entangled in a lawsuit caused by the actions of his tenant. By naming the landlord as additional insured, the named insured extends coverage, especially defense costs, to the landlord. The tenant's insurance company would have to defend both the named insured and the additional insured.. Additional insured's are a common and increasingly important part of liability insurance. It is important you make sure your agent is aware of the specific nature of the relationship you have with the additional insured, to ensure the proper additonal insured form is provided. I generally like to review my clients contracts - including leases - to make sure the policy and a/i form are compliant. ( Full Answer )

I am assuming you mean a tenant in a commercial building as opposed to a residential tenant (i.e. apartment dweller).. A tenant in a commercial building will typically be a business of some sort (eg. a Retailer located in a shopping Mall, or a manufacturer who rents a warehouse or plant, etc.). Wha…tever the case, it is important for a commercial tenant to be properly covered by a Commercial General Liability (CGL) policy which will provide protection against claims for Bodily Injury or Property damage caused through the negligent actions of the Tenant/Business. A prudent Landlord will require all of his/her tenants to carry CGL coverage and will seek to be added to the policy as an "Additional Insured". This will help protect the Landlord from lawsuits brought about by the negligence of his/her tenants.. Hope this helps. ( Full Answer )

The contractor may not be able to qualify for jobs, as most principals require proof of insurance as a condition of the contract; this is especially true for public sector jobs. If the contractor is responsible for damage to the property owner or others who would otherwise have been within the ambi…t of coverage, the contractor would him/herself be liable for the damages if at fault. Further, if sued, the contractor would be liable for the payment of his/her own attorney's fees and court costs to defend the suit. In contrast, one of the benefits of general liability insurance is that the insurer pays all or most of the reasonable costs of investigation, court costs, and hires and pays an attorney to defend the insured.
