California Small Business Insurance


If you’re a small business owner in California and you are looking for liability insurance for your business, you have to come to the right place. Hiscox does not offer a one-size-fits-all insurance plan, instead we tailor our small business insurance in California to meet your needs. Hiscox small business insurance products include:

 


General Liability Insurance also known as Commercial General Liability (CGL) protects your business from another person or business’s claims of bodily injury, associated medical costs, and damage to property. Some examples of what could be covered are below:

  • Bodily injury: A client falls over their personal trainer’s gym bag and the trainer is found legally liable for the injury. A general liability insurance policy could cover the personal trainer’s subsequent claim and related medical expenses up to policy limits of liability.
  • Property damage and data loss: A consultant spills coffee on a client’s server causing damage and loss of data. The consultant’s general liability coverage could cover the subsequent claim, up to policy limits, and could pay for an attorney to defend the consultant if necessary.
  • Personal injury: One of your employees is at lunch. He talks to some of his fellow co-workers about one of your clients in a false and unflattering way. The client learns of this discussion and sues for slander. General liability coverage could cover the subsequent claim, up to your limits, and pay for an attorney to defend you if necessary.

Professional liability insurance, sometimes called errors and omissions insurance (E&O insurance) is coverage for another person’s claims against businesses that provide professional and personal services. Some examples of what could be covered are below:

  • Protection even if you haven’t made a mistake: A human resource’s consultant advises a client to change some internal processes to increase productivity. The recommendations are not implemented as If the client decides to sue, a professional liability policy could pay for defense costs, up to policy limits.
  • Negligent acts: A consultant advises a client to update their employment practices. Six months later, the client contacts the consultant, stating a part-time employee is suing the company. The consultant left out a key requirement on the amount of hours part-time employees are permitted to work. A professional liability policy could appoint an attorney to defend the consultant, if the client sues.
