If an unexpected accident takes place at your business, or a lawsuit is filed against your business that is related to a product or service, the general liability insurance you have in place should cover your losses, including the legal costs involved in defending against it.
A general business insurance policy should cover you against injury lawsuits, false or misleading advertising lawsuits, accusations of slander, and copyright infringement, as well as property damage to your place of business if you are a tenant rather than the owner of the property.
Do you have the right level of protection?
The level of coverage you have in place will determine whether you are actually fully protected against financial losses. Many business owners have a policy in which property insurance and liability insurance are bundled into one contract called a “BOP” or Business Owners Policy. The actual coverage for liability in these policies is often less than what is needed should the unexpected occur. As with any insurance policy, you will be forced to pay the shortfall once you reach the limits of your coverage.
Creating a custom business insurance policy might be the right choice for your business in order to ensure you are covered in case a lawsuit is filed against your company. This policy would be created based upon your level of risk with a focus on affordability. You need the coverage, but the price must be reasonable.
