Kentucky Small Business Insurance
Throughout Kentucky, there are thousands of small business owners operating successfully day to day. And since no two businesses are the same, we don’t offer a one-size-fits-all as part of our Kentucky business insurance; instead, we customize your policy to suit what you do at a price that’s right for your needs. All small business owners should consider protecting their business with the right insurance. Hiscox small business insurance products available in the state include:
General liability insurance, 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: The client of a massage therapist falls while getting off the massage table and breaks a leg. The massage therapist is protected by a general liability policy which could cover the client's medical costs associated with the injury.
- Property damage: A hairdresser is at the home of a bride a week before the wedding to style her hair for some pre-wedding photos. The hairdresser drops a curling iron on the bride's gown, singeing it. A general liability policy could cover the cost of emergency repairs on the gown.
- Data loss: An HR consultant has a client company's payroll records on their laptop. The laptop is damaged and the data cannot be recovered. The consultant's general liability policy could cover the costs associated with recreating the lost data.

Professional liability insurance, also known as errors and omissions insurance (E&O insurance), covers another person’s claims against businesses that provide professional and personal services. Some examples of what could be covered include:
- Protection even if you haven't made a mistake: A property manager is sued by a tenant who claims they were illegally evicted from their apartment. Even if the manager didn't make a mistake, they could be covered by a professional liability policy for defense costs, as well as any settlement or judgment.
- Copyright infringement: A graphic designer creates a logo for a client in the technology space. Several weeks after the client begins to use the logo, they receive a cease and desist order from a large corporation in another industry, stating that the logo infringes on their copyright. The client sues the designer to recover the costs to redesign the logo and reprint their marketing materials. The designer is protected by a professional liability policy, which could cover their costs.
