Business Insurance - Protect Your Buisness Wayzata MN

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.

Business Insurance - Protect Your Buisness

Business Insurance

If you have your own business, you should be thinking about business insurance. It's not just for a big business - it can be for your home business.

With business insurance, your concerns are really three-fold:

  • 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. 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.

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.

What if you have employees? Again, an endorsement to a homeowners policy is not a possibility. Once you need busines...
