General liability insurance covers a wide range of accidents and basic risks. With carpenter liability insurance, you’ll have financial protection if someone other than an employee gets hurt or you are held responsible for damaging property that doesn’t belong to you. General liability might be required for a carpenter license in your state, and it’s common for clients to ask for proof of coverage. General liability includes contractors’ E&O, or professional liability coverage, which can help cover costs in a business disagreement.
