Insurance for Small Business
Insurance for small businesses is a must-have necessity! Running a small business can be ultimately rewarding but also complex and confusing considering all the things you have to do to keep your business going. From filing taxes, managing cash-flow, keeping abreast of your competitors, there are hundreds of details you need to track and manage.
Insurance for your small business is often the farthest thing from your mind! As a result, you may not be aware of the range of benefits the right business insurance policy can provide to protect you, your employees and customers, and your business assets.
Have you thought about what happens if a contractor is injured on your premises? Or if their tools or equipment get stolen or go missing from your business while they are working for you? Small Business Insurance can minimize your liability!
Did you know that there are small business insurance policies that will protect the income of the business in the case of fire, break-ins, etc? You can essentially keep it "business as usual" with a solid business insurance policy.
A good small business insurance policy can help you set up a temporary location while your space is being reconstructed after a disaster or break-in. However not all insurance providers provide the same type of comprehensive small business coverage.

You receive a letter in the mail from Government Employees Injury Compensation regarding the injury of a Canada Post employee while on your property. Scary stuff to find in your morning mail. So what happens next? How does liability insurance work?
Liability insurance works to protect your interest by determining the validity of the claim. Your insurance company will respond in one of 3 ways:
- They can deny the claim altogether.
- They can make an offer to settle.
- They can defend you in court. If you are found liable by the court, your policy will provide coverage for any compensatory damages you are legally obligated to pay with respect to the injuries sustained by the postal employee.
What wonât be covered? Your liability insurance will not cover any punitive damages assessed by a court as punishment for your actions. Another limitation of your coverages is that it does not apply to injuries sustained by you or any members of your immediate family or employees in your business.
Deductibles donât apply to liability coverage. Your policy will also cover legal defense costs should the third party file suit against you.
Would you know how to respond responsibly in the aftermath of an accident?
If you are involved in an accident in which someone is injured or their property is damaged, be sure to write down any information you think might be essential to the incident, usually through your broker. The insurance company will want to know the date, time, place and circumstances surrounding the event. Furthermore, take the time to record the names and addresses of witnesses and anyone you think might make a claim against you.
Like most people, you probably wonât think much about liability insurance until you have to use it. Most customers buy property insurance to protect their belongings / home, etc. But the big money is in liability coverages. Common occurrences include the child who is nipped by your runaway dog, the postal employee at your business or your child who hits a ball right through a neighbourâs pricey picture window.
Liability insurance helps you meet any potential legal obligations to others in the event of an unintentional incident.
