Garage Liability Insurance

This type of insurance is typically purchased by automobile dealerships and repair shops.  It covers property damage and bodily injury resulting from the operations of an auto garage.  It includes the ownership, maintenance or use of covered autos and all operations “necessary or incidental” to a garage business.

Garagekeepers’ Liability Insurance

Garagekeepers coverage provides protection for damage to customer vehicles due to the insured’s legal liability.  This additional coverage is needed because of the “care, custody or control” exclusion in the liability section of the standard commercial general liability policy. This form of insurance is similar to bailee’s insurance.

Medical Professional Liability (Medical Malpractice Insurance)

Medical Professional liability insures for negligence by a health care provider resulting from a failure to use due care or where the standard of care falls below what is expected from a person in a particular profession.  A medical professional liability insurance policy covers bodily injury or property damage as well as liability for personal injury such as mental anguish.
