Frequently Asked Questions About Business Owner Insurance

Question: When do I need a policy like this?

Answer: If you run your own company then you need a policy that protects you and your business. Otherwise, a disruption to your business could lead to lost revenue and place your company at risk. In addition, should you be considered liable for an accident involving your company or commercial vehicle then you may need protection against lawsuits and settlements.

Question: Does the policy protect my business?

Answer: Yes. The policy can actually incorporate a number of different policies, consolidated into a single policy that provides the best protection for your business and your budget. For example, your insurance may offer coverage should your property become damaged, should theft occur, and liability coverage for your property and vehicle.

Question: What if I am forced to temporarily close my business?

Answer: Should a disaster force you to close your doors for a temporary amount of time, a policy can help you cover costs and payroll to ensure this temporary halt doesn’t hurt your company in the long run.
