Business Insurance - Protect Your Buisness Leland NC

Lets start first with the home business scenario. With a home business, one of the biggest issues is to protect your home business equipment. Often, this will mean insurance on your technology (computers or other equipment) and business assets (like your fax machine). If you run your business from home, you may think these items are covered. However, a standard home insurance policy will not always give you enough protection for expensive assets like computer equipment or specialized machinery.

  • Protect yourself against liability claims from your clientele.
  • Protect yourself from employees (if you have any) who may have a legitimate claim for at work injury against you.

Lets start first with the home business scenario. With a home business, one of the biggest issues is to protect your home business equipment.

The biggest challenge is if you also require liability protection for your home business. Most homeowner policy endorsements to cover your equipment will not give you liability insurance protection. If you are providing a service to clients, liability insurance can be essential. A client could sue you if a project goes wrong. If you are selling a product, a client could sue for damage caused by the product. Liability insurance will protect your personal assets in both these cases.
