Our Commercial Insurance

Your business needs protecting just as your home does. In addition to protecting your assets, you need insurance to protect yourself, your workers, and any visitors to the business. This is where commercial insurance comes in.

What is Commercial Insurance?

First of all, commercial General Liability Insurance is also known as CGL. It protects business owners against claims of liability for bodily injury, property damage, and personal and advertising injury (slander and false advertising). Premises/operations coverage pays for bodily injury or property damage that occurs on your premises or as a result of your business operations. Products/completed operations coverage pays for bodily injury and property damage that occurs away from your business premises. It also covers incidents caused by your products or completed work.

General Liability Commercial Insurance

General liability commercial insurance is a broad type of insurance that provides coverage for general business risks. It is considered the baseline of coverage that most businesses typically purchase. As a result, it protects your business from many of the common risks that can happen to any type of business. This includes personal injury or property damage that occurs on the business premises as well as incidents that happen during normal operations.

However, many businesses have needs that extend beyond what commercial general liability covers. As a result, you should consider additional types based on your needs.

Business Owner Policy

Also known as a BOP, this insurance combines protection for all major property and liability risks as one form of insurance. A BOP policy combines basic coverage required by a business owner in one bundle. However, a business owner policy is generally sold at a premium less than individual coverage total cost.

A BOP may protect business owners from property damage, business interruption, peril, and liability. In most cases, business owners can sign up for additional coverage including crime, forgery, merchandise spoilage, fidelity, and other scenarios. Businesses may also get special consideration if they meet certain criteria.

Professional Liability Insurance

Also known as PLI, it is an insurance that protects individual professionals such as lawyers, accountants, and even physicians against claims from their clients or patients. Professionals in a specific industry may be required to purchase a PLI as general liability insurance policies do not offer this type of protection. PLI can cover special scenarios like malpractice, negligence, or misrepresentation.

PLI can also be commonly referred to as medical malpractice insurance for the purpose of covering any errors, omissions, and more.

Workers Comp Insurance

Your workers are in danger of injuring themselves on the job. It doesn’t matter if they work at a desk all day or at a factory with dangerous equipment. Accidents happen. Workers comp insurance helps protect your business against any claims made by injured workers.

Also referred to as workman’s comp, this insurance covers all reasonable and necessary medical treatment for workers who get injured in the course and scope of their employment. It also covers medical bills in the issue they experience an occupational disease. Workers comp even covers the wages a worker loses while they recuperate. The benefits and provisions for employees and employers vary from state to state, so be sure to use an insurance agent who knows your state.
