A single accident could result in a costly lawsuit that could cripple your business. A great way to protect against the result of an accident is to make sure you carry enough general insurance. Some employers might also require you to carry a certain amount of general liability insurance before you can work for them.

Property Insurance

Business property insurance is one of the most important investments to help ensure the future of your business, because it covers everything related to the loss and damage of company property. The definition of "property" is broad, and includes lost income, business interruption, buildings, computers, company papers and money. For example:

  • A fire in an adjacent building may destroy your property or you could have smoke damage
  • A burst water pipe could damage your important documents, furnishings, and electronics
  • A windy storm could damage your outdoor sign
  • An accident outside the business may result in damage to your fence and landscaping
