Property & liability business insurance should be a priority no matter the size of your business. Any business, large or small, can find itself the target of a personal injury lawsuit. Physical property can also be damaged by fire, water, vandalism, or any other hazard just like a home. The correct liability insurance and property insurance can shield your company from these kinds of problems.

General Liability Insurance
A general liability policy, also known as a commercial liability policy, provides coverage when a customer slips and falls in an aisle in your store, someone gets injured using a product you manufactured, or otherwise gets hurt in connection with your business. Covered costs usually include litigation expenses, settlement costs and other expenses associated with a lawsuit. No business should operate without a general liability policy in place.
General liability policies may also provide coverage if you are sued for copyright infringement or libel, or are wrongfully evicted from your company space.
Property Damage Insurance
Property insurance helps protect you when your business property is damaged or destroyed. It can cover everything from your building to your computers to your inventory and much more.
Basic property insurance policies typically cover explosions, fire, lightning, windstorm, hail, smoke, aircraft or vehicle damage, vandalism, sprinkler leakage, and sinkhole collapse. Additional coverage can be added for water damage; damage from the weight of snow, ice or sleet; breakage of glass; and falling objects.
Business Owners Policy
If you run a small business with a few employees and under $5 million in annual sales, a business owners policy (BOP) may be the place to start. A BOP combines standard levels of property, liability and other forms of insurance into one package, which can then be customized to fit your unique needs.
