Business Liability Insurance
It takes a lot of time, energy, and financial resources to keep your business running smoothly. It’s important to protect your investment from the economic consequences of lawsuits and other legal actions. Whether your business is a C corp, S corp, Individual, Partnership, Sole Proprietorship, LLC or any other form of company, legal defense costs and court judgments can strain your finances for years to come or put you out of business altogether. You need a strong Business Liability Insurance program to protect your business from financial disaster.
Why do you need Business Liability Insurance?
When someone claims a bodily injury or property damage due to your business premises or operations, resolving the situation can take some of the time, effort, and money you need to run your company. An injured person may demand payment for medical bills, lost wages, and other expenses. When property is damaged, the owner will want it repaired or replaced. If a damaged party files a lawsuit, legal fees, and court costs can get expensive.
Liability Insurance protects your company from the financial costs of claims and lawsuits. Your liability insurance company will set up a claim file on your behalf and investigate to determine fault. If you are legally liable, they will pay the damages. If the claim has no merit, they will defend your company until the case is concluded.
What kind of liability coverage is right for your business?
Your business is your biggest asset. It requires the best protection possible. It’s important to select Business Liability Insurance coverage options that are tailored to fit your specific needs.
