Builder’s Risk Insurance
As a builder, you need peace of mind knowing you will be protected financially if materials, fixtures, and equipment used in the construction of a building sustain loss, theft or damage.
E-Commerce / Internet Liability
Also known as cyber liability, e-commerce or Internet liability policies fill in the gaps in your general liability policy which may exclude losses due to cyber hacking and other Internet-based issues. Don't become another statistic: nine million Americans becoming the victims of identity theft every year, costing them $15 billion. You can't leave cyber security threats up to chance, especially if you operate an e-commerce store.
Employment Practices Liability
Whether you're the employer of a handful of employees or hundreds, you're at risk for lawsuits brought about by those who work for you. Known for short as EPLI, this type of insurance covers the following types of accusations:
- Workplace harassment/sexual harassment
- Discriminatory discharge
- Failure to promote
- Wrongful termination
- Negligent evaluation
- Contract violations
Fidelity & Surety Bonds
Depending on your line of work, you may need the protection of fidelity and surety bonds. For example, business owners may need surety bonds to guarantee payment of utility bills or taxes, while a contractor may need to post a license or permit bond to ensure the proper licensing requirements on a project.
If your business is located in a flood zone, or you conduct business within a flood zone, you can opt for this type of coverage which will protect your assets in the event of flooding damage.
Liability insurance is a general policy that will protect you against third party claims -- ideal for small businesses and commercial businesses that face a high level of risk.
Medical Malpractice Insurance
Doctors, physicians, dentists and others within the healthcare field require medical malpractice insurance to protect them in the event a lawsuit is brought against them by a patient. Such insurance is designed to cover:
- Expert witness costs
- Court costs
- Indemnity of settlements
- Other damages as a result of accidents, errors, alleged neglect or adverse events
Studies show that physicians face at least one lawsuit by the age of 65. Protect yourself at all costs.
Professional Liability / Errors & Omissions / Directors & Officers
As the owner of a business, you have to be ready for any accidents that occur on your property, such as slips and falls or employee injury at the hands of your machinery. You don't want to be left footing the bill for medical expenses, damages and legal defenses. That's why you need professional liability insurance that protects you from defense costs, judgments, court fees and much more.
Errors and Omissions, known as E&O for short, covers any errors made on your part while providing professional services, whether through negligence, faulty materials, or disagreements over a resulting service. Directors and Officers insurance, also called D&O for short, protects the decisions made by a company’s management team.
This can cover both actual property and intellectual property, the former protecting you against damage, loss or theft of the structure in which you do business, and the latter protecting you against patent, trademark and computer software design infringement.
Considered extra liability insurance, an umbrella policy protects you from major claims and lawsuits through additional liability coverage above and beyond what you may have on your existing homeowner's and auto insurance policies.
It's important to have safeguards in place to protect you as a business owner should one of your employees get hurt on the job. Without it, you could be liable for their time off work, medical expenses and any lawsuits that may arise.
