  • General Liability - Covers your company in the case of an accident, injury, or negligence lawsuit.
  • Product Liability - Covers your company if there is a product defect.
  • Commercial Property Insurance - Covers your business property for damages from a fire, vandalism, theft, or a computer breakdown. It also covers the cost of rental space while repairs are being made.
  • Business Interruption Insurance - Covers your business if you are unable to operate due to a loss from a natural disaster, etc.
  • Professional Liability Insurancee - Covers legal costs if your business is sued for failure to perform a service, negligence, misrepresentation, or breach of contract.
