No matter how careful you are, there will be times in which you or an employee create liability and the results can be devastating to your business. Here are real-life examples of how having the right liability insurance saved a business from going under.
A business owner fired an employee over a safety dispute. The employee brought an employment claim for wrongful termination. A jury awarded the employee $500.000 in damages. The employer did purchase employers liability insurance. The claim was covered less the $1,000 deductible.
A local business manager mistakenly sent the companies log-in data to what he thought was their bank, but it was actually a hacker. The hacker withdrew $100,000 from the companies account. The business has purchased cyber insurance that covered such losses.
You decide to publish a new company brochure. You have an office staff person find images to use in your brochure. The end result is great and you now have a great new brochure.

Your business insurance would help cover related costs up to your policy limit.
