When problems with your livestock create problems for others
Transferring animals can be less predictable than transporting wood, clothing, or other common items. What would happen if your animals escaped the trailer, ran onto the road, and caused an accident? There are other potential hazards to consider that are hiding in plain sight, too, right on your business property.
If your business has a warehouse – or even a front stoop – you have potential hazards that could lead to injuries (and lawsuits). The bottom line is that in many situations, you could inadvertently put visitors, partners, or bystanders at risk, and you could be held responsible for any damage or injury that may arise. Commercial general liability insurance (CGL) could help if the injured party was to take legal action against your business.
