Is Your Business Protected Against Lawsuits?

is your business protected against lawsuits

The idea behind securing adequate insurance coverage for your business is to protect it, and yourself, from unforeseen incidents that could otherwise prove too much of a burden to bear. To do so, we will help you consider every possible avenue that might expose your company to risk, and what kind of coverage would offer the best protection. Though you might not consider it something you will have to face, lawsuits and litigation are something many companies must deal with sooner or later. To prevent you from becoming overburdened, we can build your business insurance policy to cover general liabilities like lawsuits, as well as any other possible risks that could hinder your business’ operations.

What You Might Face

In today’s unfortunately-litigious world, lawsuits against businesses of all sizes are all too common. With the amazing speed with which information is shared, a company’s legal risks are even more pronounced and diverse. For instance, if an employee makes a disparaging remark about someone (or another entity) on your  company’s social media site, that company may consider it libel (or slander, if the remark is spoken). Or, an unsatisfied customer/client may seek to sue your company at will, and the legal fees alone could prove devastating to your business’ finances, regardless of the outcome.

What Insurance Coverage Should I Get?

In most cases, general liability insurance should include some amount of coverage against business litigation. During your personal consultation with us, we can determine if your general liability insurance will be adequate, or if you should add an additional policy, such as umbrella coverage, to make sure your business can continue uninterrupted in case of legal issues. As your business grows, we can continue to evaluate your risks, and consult with you to recommend any policy changes, if necessary.
