You’ve worked hard to create your company and can’t risk losing it all. As a business owner, being held liable for even one claim could destroy your livelihood. That’s where commercial liability insurance comes in. At W.J. Wheeler Insurance Agency , our agents are experts in commercial insurance and are here to advise you on what you need and don’t need in a commercial liability policy.
Employment Practices Liability
As an employer, you are vulnerable to many potentially devastating claims, such as wrongful termination, discrimination, sexual harassment and breach of contract. Employment practices liability insurance protects employers against lawsuits such as these.
If an accident happens on your business’ premises, you could be held accountable. In addition to protecting yourself and your business in the event of liability lawsuits, general liability insurance will cover you in in the event of property theft, vandalism, and bodily injury or property damage due to fire.
As an employer, you have a responsibility to keep your employees safe from harm. Laws differ from state to state, and W.J. Wheeler is an expert in Maine’s unique workers compensation requirements. One of our agents can guide you through the process of finding the policy that is right for you and your employees. Remember that workers compensation insurance is different from a general commercial policy and is meant to cover medical expenses, lost income, and wages and death benefits.
Business Owners Insurance
Also known as BOP, a business owners policy combines coverage for the property and liability risks of small- or mid-sized businesses. BOPs can include items such as property insurance, reimbursement for lost revenue due to fire and liability protection.
You are an expert in your field; however, even the experts occasionally make errors. Professional liability insurance protects you in the event that you are held legally liable for harm caused to a client because of a professional service you provided.
