Are you a business owner in the Chandler, AZ area? If so, the San Marcos Insurance Group can provide the commercial insurance protection your business needs. The most important part of a business operation is protecting it from devastating financial loss. The difference could be the company’s ability to continue operations or face the possibility of a shutdown. A commercial insurance policy can make a difference.
There are several types of commercial insurance to choose from. The most common types are liability, property, and workers’ compensation. Simply put, liability insurance covers damage to third parties, property insurance covers any damage to the property of your business, and workers’ compensation covers on-the-job illness or injury to your employees.
Even if you work out of your home, every small business needs protection. If you have business vehicles, you will need business vehicle insurance coverage. Most states will require you to have workers’ compensation insurance if you have employees.
Business insurance requirements will differ from state to state. The names for the various coverage are not always the same among insurance companies. For example, one insurer could refer to coverage for the accidental breakdown of equipment as machinery insurance, while another could call it mechanical breakdown coverage.
Without certain types of coverage, such as workers’ compensation, it puts you in violation of state laws and, in many cases, is considered a felony. This could result in hefty fines and possible jail time.
Also, being underinsured could result in economic losses for the business, as the claim amount could be in excess of the maximum amount that the insurance policy will pay. Underinsurance results from having insufficient coverage or the wrong coverage for your business.
Don’t put your livelihood at risk. Insure it with a commercial insurance policy. The San Marcos Insurance Group can get you started on the road to business security.
