Information About Small Business Insurance

Types of Small Businesses We Cover

Having general liability insurance — also known as business liability insurance — ensures your business has a safeguard in place to protect against claims. This coverage aids in situations where you frequently interact with clients, access your customers’ property or use third-party locations. Without it, you’ll be solely and legally responsible for covering the costs if someone gets hurt or property gets damaged.

At XINSURANCE, we’ll keep you protected. We provide coverage for all kinds of small businesses, including:

  • Automotive
  • Consulting
  • Contractors

  • Personal trainers
  • Real estate agencies
  • Car wash services
  • And much more

Why You Need General Liability Coverage

No matter the size or type of your small business, there are several reasons to have general liability insurance. Even when you take steps to minimize potential problems, there are risks involved in running any business.

With general liability insurance, your small business will have increased financial protection to navigate and overcome claims. Lawsuits can result from reasons ranging from omissions to slander to negligence. Even if you are a contractor, it’s still important to have general liability insurance, as you’ll be susceptible to the same risks in the workplace.

Some of the most common claims involve:

  • Property damage
  • Bodily injuries
  • Medical payments

Frequently Asked Questions About Liability Insurance for Small Businesses

If you have any questions about obtaining liability insurance for your small business, XINSURANCE can help. Here are some of the most frequently asked questions about this coverage:

Is Liability Insurance Covered by Law?

Some small businesses are not required to carry general liability insurance. If you don’t have insurance, though, you will need to be prepared to pay for all of the expenses related to any claims. Having a customized insurance policy can help you with legal and medical fees and bills.

Will I Have A Deductible?

Yes, your policy will include a deductible or self-insured retention (SIR), depending upon the type of coverage you choose. Physical damage coverage will include a deductible, and liability coverage will include a liability deductible or an SIR. The SIR is a specified dollar amount you must pay before your policy responds to a loss. The deductible is a portion of a covered loss that the insurer does not pay. We can customize the deductible/SIR amount to fit your business’s needs.

Does Small Business Insurance Cover Injuries?

General liability insurance can cover against claims that a third party has for their bodily injury if your business is legally liable.

Does Small Business Liability Insurance Cover Negligence?

Small businesses typically obtain general liability insurance coverage. Depending on the conditions and exclusions of the policy, general liability insurance typically does provide coverage for accidents involving bodily injury or property damage arising from your negligence. As a business owner, however, you may want to expand your coverage to also include professional liability insurance coverage. This kind of coverage broadens your protection. Professional liability insurance typically provides coverage for wrongful acts (like bad advice or instructions) resulting in damages that may be something other than bodily injury or property damage (like lost investment opportunities).
