Why do entrepreneurs need insurance?

Being an entrepreneur is a dream for many. You can be independent and do things on your own. Whether it's building your brand or fighting social injustice, you can really carve out a name for yourself. However, going it alone makes you vulnerable to all kinds of potential lawsuits that can cut into your profits. You need insurance that’s customized to your specific business risks. 

Let's face it. As a self-employed entrepreneur, there's enough on your plate. You spend your days finding new clients and then doing all of the work. And then there are the administrative tasks. That's why you can't afford a lawsuit. Here's an example. 

You have an accounting business, and you visit a client’s home to work on their taxes. As you take out your laptop, you drop it and damage the client’s floor. They can sue for the cost to repair or replace the floor. 

In another example, you work as a personal trainer and have a home gym. Some fitness entrepreneurs mistakenly believe their homeowner's insurance is adequate coverage. However, if a client falls in the home gym and has to go to the hospital, they could sue for medical expenses and loss of income. What's more, a typical homeowners policy won't cover damages or losses outside of your home, and your policy probably excludes liability coverage for any business-related activity. Fortunately, your Hiscox liability insurance can cover medical costs, damages and legal fees. 

At Hiscox, we offer entrepreneurial insurance to fit your specific industry risks. Your coverage is around-the-clock protection, whether you're at fault or not.  

Insurance policies available for entrepreneurs:

Businesses typically select from three basic insurance policies. These policies offer unique protections to help you mitigate your risks.

With a simple and free application process, you can receive your insurance documents electronically the same day.
