Professional Liability Insurance That Fits Your Needs
Liability insurance will protect business assets in the event the business is sued. These days, with lawsuits clogging the courts, a business owner should maintain a proper amount of liability insurance to protect the business he or she has worked so hard to build. Any company can be sued for something it did—or even didn’t do—that resulted in injury or property damage to someone else.
The expenses of defending yourself or your business against a lawsuit without insurance can be a substantial cost to you, regardless of whether or not the lawsuit has merit. Liability insurance will cover the cost of damages along with the legal fees and other costs associated with your defense in a lawsuit. In addition, many customers will demand that their vendors hold liability insurance.
- Ensure you and your company are covered if a mistake is made in professional services.
- Protect yourself and your company in the event the business is sued.
