The Importance of Business Insurance

July 25, 2018 Blog

Operating a company is like riding a roller coaster. You start out slow while working your way to the top of the first hill. Once you reach the top, there may be further twists, turns, and unexpected jolts that make for a rough ride.

Each time you land a new client, you reach the top of a new hill. You have many reasons to celebrate with your team. Yet, when you have an employee injured on the job, a natural disaster, or worse, a client sues you for allegedly breaching a contract, everything may come hurling down to break the tracks and end your ride.

Protect your personal and commercial assets. Our expert brokers understand the ups and downs of growing a company. They can tailor a program to safeguard your business and keep the fun rolling.

7 Ways to Protect Yourself and Your Company

Keeping your firm and your employees safe requires thinking ahead. Consider these reasons to invest in commercial coverage:

  • It’s required by law: Depending on the state in which you operate, you will need specific types of coverage, such as worker’s compensation, unemployment, and disability. Without these, you could face fines, civil or criminal penalties, and even exclusion from public contracts.
  • You might be sued: The unfortunate reality is that we live in a litigious society. If you are sued and do not have adequate coverage, you may have to close your doors.
  • Your company can continue to operate in the event of a natural disaster: Natural disasters appear to be increasing each year. Will your company crumble if a flood or earthquake destroys your property?
  • You look like a legitimate firm: The public is wary of enterprises that do not carry adequate coverage. Business insurance lets your prospective clients and customers know you are a safe organization to work with.
  • You need to protect your employees: Your most valuable assets clock out each evening. Worker’s compensation and/or disability policies can keep them protected.
  • You need protection from natural disasters, unexpected accidents, or unfortunate events not caused by human hands. For example, think of floods, tornados, or hurricanes.
  • Your company needs to keep operating even if you stop: We never know what will happen next. One moment you may be running a meeting, and the next, you may find yourself in the hospital.
