What Kind of Insurance Fits Your Business?
Businesses come in all shapes and sizes. We can help design the coverage that’s right for you, tailored to your needs.
Generally, most businesses need a combination of:
Property insurance for the building, structure and other property you use to do business.
Liability insurance in case someone claims that your business caused him or her harm. Your liability insurance pays damages to third parties resulting from bodily injury or property damage for which your business is legally liable, up to the policy limits, as well as legal fees. It may also cover the medical bills of people injured by your business.
- Commercial auto insurance for vehicles owned by your business. The insurance pays any costs to third parties resulting from bodily injury or property damage for which your business is legally liable, up to the policy limits. Depending on what kind of coverage you buy, the insurance may pay to repair or replace your vehicle because of damage resulting from accidents, theft, flooding and other events.
- Workers’ compensation insurance for medical care and a portion of lost wages for an employee who is injured in the course of employment, regardless of who was at fault for the injury.
In addition to these basic coverages, we can help you select from optional coverages available, like:
- A business catastrophe liability or umbrella policy that is designed to protect against catastrophic losses. For the typical business, the umbrella policy would provide protection over and above general liability and auto liability policies.
- Employment Practices Liability Insurance (EPLI) that provides protection against claims brought by employees alleging discrimination, wrongful termination or harassment, including sexual harassment.
- Other specialized liability insurance policies that are designed to meet specific needs of individual businesses. They include:
- Errors and Omissions Insurance (E&O)/Professional Liability Insurance
- Directors and Officers Liability Insurance (D&O)
- Data Breach Protection provides coverage for expenses and legal liability resulting from a data breach. It also provides access to services to help business owners comply with regulatory requirements and address customer concerns. While virtually any business is at risk of a data breach regardless of industry, businesses that store sensitive client or patient data, such as those in healthcare, financial or professional services are particularly vulnerable. Restaurants and retailers also face increased risk, given the volume of credit card information they process.
And, as a business owner, you may want to offer group life and health insurance as part of your employee benefit package. We can help with that, too.
