Frequently Asked Questions on Commercial Insurance


How Does Commercial Insurance Work?

Commercial Lines Insurance helps keep the economy running smoothly by protecting businesses from potential losses they couldn't afford to cover on their own, which allows businesses to operate when it might otherwise be too risky to do so.

Insurance that protects businesses against losses as a result of such things as damage to property and injuries to employees.

What Is Coverage Like for this Type of Business Insurance?

Commercial Lines Insurance includes a variety of products:

  • Commercial Auto Insurance
  • Workers Compensation Insurance
  • Commercial Property Insurance
  • Commercial General Liability Insurance
  • and more...

Commercial lines protect businesses against potentially devastating financial losses caused by accidents, lawsuits, natural disasters and other adverse events. Coverage available and premium costs vary by business type, size, and location.

Why Do the Commercials Line Policies Vary?

While all commercial lines share some similarities, each policy will be tailored for the type of business being covered and the client's unique needs.

Commercial lines aren't just for large corporations. Even a small, home-based business might need one or more commercial lines because homeowners insurance provides limited or no insurance for business activities.

For example, a home business might need commercial auto insurance for a company-owned delivery vehicle, workers compensation insurance for the employee who drives the vehicle, property insurance to cover business goods stolen from the home or vehicle, and liability insurance to protect against claims by any client who claims they were harmed by the business's product.



Protect Your Business From Common Liabilities


Commercial General Liability Insurance

Your business faces liabilities every day. The only way to protect your assets is to carry adequate business liability insurance. A Commercial General Liability (CGL) insurance policy is the first line of defense against many common claims.

General Liability insurance covers claims of bodily injury or other physical injury or property damage. It is frequently offered in a package with Property insurance to protect your business against incidents that may occur on your premises or at other covered locations where you normally conduct business. Commercial General Liability enables your business to continue operations while it faces real or fraudulent claims of certain types of negligence or wrongdoing.

Commercial General Liability - The Most Basic Form of Business Insurance If you have only one form of business insurance, it is most likely Commercial General Liability. CGL policies cover claims in four basic categories of business liability:

  • Bodily Injury
  • Property Damage
  • Personal Injury (including slander or libel)
  • Advertising Injury

In addition to covering the claims listed above, Commercial General Liability policies also cover the cost to defend or settle claims - even if the claims are fraudulent. Commercial General Liability only protects against some business liabilities.

Business liability Insurance Keeps You In Business
