The team at 925 Partners of Jacksonville, FL, and the surrounding area can provide you with many of these answers, though there are some terms you should know in advance.
Business Owners Policy (BOP)
This is a package policy with liability and property insurance combined so that small business can spend less when they have to get multiple policies.
Business Interruption Insurance
This is put in place if your business needs to shut down, and it’s because of a covered loss reason. The coverage typically will reimburse for the expenses you’d have if your business had continued operations.
Commercial Auto Insurance
Commercial auto insurance provides coverage to your employees and company’s vehicles if there’s been injuries and/or damage. It does not matter if these automobiles are owned, rented, or leased. The policy also covers any passengers at the time.
Employer’s Liability Insurance
This protects an employer if their employee files a lawsuit after being injured in the workplace or while conducting work duties. Workers’ compensation benefits don’t allow much room for the employee to sue after such an injury.
This is a broader version of the employer’s liability. The company can be held liable for injuries or damages to another party while on the premises (as well as those that occur from company property or employees during their assigned work duties off the premises).
A means for a company to help minimize how much loss they experience.
A hazard or event that is listed and covered by your policy – in many instances, a certain type of policy will only cover those that are clearly outlined in your insurance policy document.
