A Business Insurance Update
Insurance coverage is available for almost every conceivable risk your business might face. Cost and amount of coverage of policies vary among insurers. The right insurance policies will go a long way toward helping you safeguard your earning power and your future. If you are a business owner there are a few insurance products you may not have considered.
Business Income or Loss of Rents
Depending on what you do with your building, may depend on the specific kind of insurance you need. If you own a building and have tenants you will want to consider loss of rents coverage. This coverage usually includes reimbursement for loss of rent or rental value in case of fire or other serious incidents covered by insurance. Business Income coverage increases a business’ ability to survive a substantial loss. If your business suffers a fire, that stops all operations for three months, the business will want to continue to pay salaries, utilities, rent and other fixed costs necessary for operations. In order for the business to become whole, the business is entitled to reimbursement for net income and operating expenses paid during the recovery period.
Data Breach or Cyber Liability
If your business stores sensitive or non-public information about employees or clients on your computers, servers or in paper files you are responsible for protecting that information. If a breach occurs either electronically or from a paper file a data breach policy will provide protection against the loss.
Standard business liability coverage will take care of you in most situations, but when serious situations arise, commercial umbrella insurance will help ensure that your business is protected. Here are two examples:
- You have a serious fire and are involved in multiple lawsuits that exhaust your primary limits.
- Your delivery truck is involved in an accident with multiple deaths or injuries.
