Business Insurance in Arroyo Grande, CA
How business (liability) insurance works.

The general liability coverage of a business insurance policy outlines the maximum amount the insurance company will pay against a liability claim. For example, if your business gets sued for $250,000 for medical costs associated with an injury plus an additional $100,000 in legal fees, but your coverage amount is maxed at $300,000, then you would be responsible for paying the difference of $50,000.

Now, if you are on the higher end of the risk scale, and already have general liability insurance, you can also opt for excess insurance or business umbrella insurance that increases your coverage limits. This will cover you in situations in which you’re worried that your existing coverage won’t cover all your costs should someone file and win a claim against you.

The Claims Process

If an incident occurs that may lead to a claim, you should notify your insurance company or agent immediately. Be prepared to explain what has happened in detail including the time, date, the names of any witnesses, and any other pertinent information. Not all claims will be accepted by the insurance company, however. As a business owner, you are required to file a claim with your insurance carrier.

If you have used an agent in the process, then they will help you file the claim. Most business insurance companies allow you to file a claim over the phone and also offer up an online option. Regardless, there is quite a bit of paperwork and details involved, regardless of what the claim may be. The business is then assigned a claim adjuster, who will review the claim and determine if the claim is covered. They may require more paperwork and it may be weeks before you know if the claim is denied or accepted. If denied, you can appeal and submit more information.

If accepted, they will give you explicit instructions on how you will get compensated, whether they will be assigning their own attorneys (as needed), or how they will reimburse your company based on the circumstances.

What coverage do you need?

The coverage you will need depends on:
  1. The type of business you are in
  2. The perceived risk associated with it
Your business location is also another factor that is taken into consideration. As an example, some states tend to award more in damages to plaintiffs claiming personal injury than others. It’s best to speak with a licensed insurance broker to determine the best coverage for your business. A licensed insurance broker can discuss with you if you fall into the lower risk category. If so, you may want to consider a Business Owner’s Policy (BOP). This policy would combine both your general liability and property insurance (and possibly other coverages) at a multiple policy, cost-effective rate.
