What is Business Insurance?

Basically, it’s a contract between a business and an insurance company, where the insurer will pay to repair, replace or recover the value of whatever the business has under coverage if it’s lost or damaged by a set number of causes.

Why Do I Need Business Insurance?

Every company, big or small, needs some form of insurance. Yes, certain types may not be required or seem relevant to you, but one tiny mistake could leave your company in financial ruins. All because you didn’t want to shell out a few hundred bucks for coverage.

Bad things that could happen to your company:

  • You could lose your stuff: theft or damage to buildings, personal property or equipment
  • You could be sued: product or service causes damage or bodily harm to a customer
  • You could make a mistake: a professional error that causes emotional distress
