Property and Casualty 101

Property and casualty insurance

Question 3

Why do businesses need P&C coverage?

Each type of coverage serves a particular purpose.

  1. Casualty – Protects business assets from liability claims regarding property damage or bodily injury resulting from business operations or products.
  2. Property – Provides for financial protection for damaged property resulting from covered hazards or events. Property includes workers’ compensation, which pays for medical care and lost wages for employees who are injured on the job or affected by illness associated with the operations of the business.

Keep In Mind:

P&C insurance should be a key consideration for home-based businesses, too. You may think that your Homeowners’ Insurance Policy covers all of your business needs, but a standalone Business Owner’s Policy may provide needed protection against a covered loss, such as spoiled food from a breakdown of home refrigeration. Many factors and potential risks can affect your insurance needs. Working with a licensed insurance agent can help you review those risks and determine the right coverage for your home-based business.
