The Commercial General Liability Policy from Sihle provides the insurance protection you need to pay damages for bodily injury or property damages for which your business is legally responsible.
The policy provides coverage for liability arising from personal injury as well as medical expenses.
Coverage is provided for injury or damages arising out of goods or products made or sold by the named insured and the employees of the named insured.
Professional -or- E&O Liability
The nature of negligence or E&O claims makes them very expensive to defend. Even if the claim has no basis in fact, it must be investigated and the professional who has been sued must be defended. The legal fees alone can be extremely high and if a settlement is obtained or a judgment awarded, financial hardship is likely.
In general, E&O or Professional Liability Insurance is necessary if:
- You provide a professional service for a fee
- You regularly advise clients
- It is specifically requested by the client as a condition of a contract
Directors & Officers Liability
Coverage includes defense costs, and damage awards or settlements that result from a lawsuit brought against an individual officer or organization’s board. In most cases, investors and the individuals serving on the board will require an organization to have D&O insurance as a protective measure.
D&O Insurance is not the same as E&O (Errors and Omissions) Insurance, which is more individual in nature, protecting a specific employee and/or business against claims and lawsuits as a result of products, services, or advice delivered. D&O Insurance protects against claims resulting from the performance and duties of the executive officers.
Employment Practices Liability
This type of business liability insurance protects companies if employees file a lawsuit alleging that their legal rights have been violated. Unfortunately, these types of lawsuits are always on the rise and companies large and small are faced with defending themselves.
EPLI policies reimburse employers for the legal costs of defending a lawsuit as well as any judgments or settlements awarded. They typically do not cover Worker’s Compensation cases or pay for punitive damages, civil or criminal fines. In some cases, you may be able to add EPLI as part of your Business Insurance policy, but in other cases you might be better off adding EPLI as a stand-alone policy.
Cyber And Data Breach
These days it’s hard to find a business that doesn’t rely on computers and technology in some fashion. In many cases, those machines are used to store sensitive business or customer data that can be compromised as cyber attacks become more widespread and sophisticated.
Protecting both your internal business data and your customer’s personal information is a business necessity, but traditional business insurance won’t protect you from lawsuits if your security is breached. Cyber Liability Insurance can.
Cyber Liability Insurance is a special type of business insurance that can help organizations pay for the costs associated with a data breach. Commonly, coverage is available to help businesses:
- Pay for defense and liability expenses associated with the breach
- Pay for others costs including notification and public relations or response expenses
