Small businesses need general liability coverage to insure risk of third-party injuries or accidents that occur. In many cases, liability provides businesses coverage for property and products related accidents, injuries, or mishaps. General liability insurance covers legal issues surrounding accidents and injuries. According to the Small Business Association, liability policies protect businesses against payments due to “bodily injury, property damage, medical expenses, libel, slander, the cost of defending lawsuits, and settlement bonds or judgments required during an appeal procedure.”

Many other types of liability insurance exist for small business owners. Product liability insurance exists to protect manufacturers, wholesalers, distributors, and retail stores from financial loss. The financial loss commonly comes as a result of a defective product that causes harm or injury.

Professional liability or errors and omissions insurance protects business owners in the case of malpractice, errors, and negligence. This insurance protects the professional from business practices that occur in professional capacity and training.



Crime Insurance covers a number of crime related instances including employee dishonesty, computer fraud, funds transfer fraud, forgery, alteration, money crimes, theft and theft of client property.

In case of employee dishonesty, crime insurance covers damage to the business’ personal property, client’s personal property, and theft of money or securities.

Computer fraud involves the loss of money or property that is fraudulently transferred from the system of a business.

Forgery, theft or alteration of money and securities is also covered under most small business crime insurance policies.


Other Small Business Insurance Coverage

A wide variety of additional coverage is available to small businesses including commercial auto coverage, workers’ compensation coverage, small truck fleet coverage, pollution liability coverage, inland and ocean marine coverage, director’s and officer’s liability coverage and employment practices coverage.
