Why do I need business insurance?
Business insurance is designed to protect your assets and profits against a financial loss caused by a catastrophe.
The following business insurance coverage’s are available and can be tailored to meet your specific needs:
Property coverage is to protect your business’s physical assets including, but not limited to, your building, outdoor sign, furniture, equipment, inventory, fence, landscaping, etc.
This is an important coverage to protect you against liability imposed upon your business because of the negligence of the business or its employees. It may be the only type of business liability insurance you need, depending on your particular business situation. This could protect you from a variety of claims including bodily injury, property damage, personal injury and others that arise from your business operations. Often times, this is combined with property coverage to dorm a Business Owners Policy (BOP).
