Small Business Coverage
As explained by the Small Business Administration, there are three types of liability coverage that small businesses commonly need:
General Liability Insurance covers issues with negligence, injuries, and accidents. Its main emphasis is on helping with the costs of legal defense, as well as providing coverage if you lose your case.
Product Liability Insurance The primary purpose of this coverage is reimbursing you for claims that arise from injuries caused by a defective product. If you deal exclusively in digital products and services, this policy will not cover those—ask one of our agents about your options.
Professional Liability Insurance focuses on mistakes and negligence that may occur when you are providing products or services to your customers. If any of the advice you give them is wrong, they could sue for damages, and this policy will help to reimburse you.
