Small Business Insurance Explained

Hiscox put together a video to explain why you need small business insurance. It also explains what kind of insurance is right for you whether it be general liability insurance, errors & omissions insurance or business owners policy. Watch the video below or read the transcript.


Being your own boss takes courage...But the risks you face as a business owner can be troubling. Small business insurance – which is also called liability commercial or third-party insurance helps protect you from those risks. Having a policy in place ensures the unexpected won’t knock you off course.

Have you considered what could happen to your business if someone gets hurt? Property is damaged? Or an error is made? A third party can sue you even if you haven’t made a mistake. And resolving these cases is expensive and time-consuming.

You need small business insurance to cover the risks inherent to your profession … and provide a financial safety net for your future. Choosing a small business insurance policy that meets your needs requires understanding the types of coverage available.

General liability insurance also known as commercial general liability, covers third-party claims of damage to property and bodily injury. An example of a claim covered by general liability is a customer who trips and falls over your equipment and sues you to cover medical costs and lost wages resulting from their injury.

Professional liability insurance...also known as errors and omissions or E and O, protects you from claims of negligence during the course of conducting business. You can be sued if you make a mistake or if a customer is dissatisfied with your work, even when you’ve done nothing wrong.
