General Liability Insurance for Your Small Business
One category of insurance coverage almost every small business needs is general liability insurance. Your business can be legally liable to people injured and for property damaged because you or your employees didn’t use reasonable care. For example, if a customer falls on a slippery floor and then sues you, you may be liable if you negligently failed to provide safe premises.
Property Insurance for Your Small Business
Property insurance can cover your business for damages or loss to your business property due to theft, fire, or other causes. There is a good deal of variation among policies on what property and what risks are covered and what the coverage is. Be sure you’re absolutely clear on these terms when you choose a policy.
