Chesapeake Small Business Insurance
Business owners in Virginia (and all other states except Alaska) can buy Hiscox business insurance online or over the phone from a licensed agent in minutes, starting at just $22.50 per month. Hiscox specializes in two types of liability insurance most small businesses in Virginia need: general liability insurance and professional liability insurance (more commonly known as errors and omissions insurance).
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: While in your office, a prospective client trips and falls over your laptop bag, requiring a trip to the emergency room. We could pay for the client’s medical expenses, regardless of who is at fault, up to the limits of your general liability policy.
- Data loss: An IT consultant is installing a new network at a client’s office. While transferring the data from the old server to the new one, several important files are corrupted. The client sues the consultant for the financial implications of the lost data. A general liability policy could cover these costs, protecting the IT consultant.
- Property damage: A project manager was working at a client site, using the client’s computer system. The project manager accidentally dropped the laptop he was using, off a table, breaking it. The client made a claim for the replacement cost of the laptop. General liability insurance protects project managers against third-party claims of bodily injury, associated medical costs and property damage.

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:
- Negligence: A professional photographer is hired to take the photographs for a wedding. The bride requests that several photographs be taken of her aging grandparents with various members of the family. The photographer forgets to take these particular photos and the omission is not discovered until the bride is reviewing the proofs a month later. The family sues the photographer, and their professional liability policy could cover them, including the cost to defend themselves, up to the limits of the policy.
- Dissatisfied client: An architect designs a large-scale home renovation for an indecisive client. After the project is complete, the client sues the architect for failing to meet the deadline and budget, despite the fact that the overages were due to multiple change requests by the client. A professional liability policy could protect the architect, paying his defense costs as well as any settlement or judgment.
