3 Types of Insurance Business Owners Often Overlook, Archdale, North Carolina

As a business owner, you might have insurance to cover your company’s assets and a liability policy to shield you from lawsuits, but sometimes a risk falls in between coverage scenarios. Unfortunately, many business owners only find out until later that they have unforeseen gaps in their policy and it doesn’t extend to certain situations. Below are some of the most important types entrepreneurs often forget about.

3 Types of Commonly Neglected Business Insurance

1. Cyber Liability 

While big data hacks of major corporations make the news, it’s small businesses that bear the brunt of these attacks. 61% of data breaches target small businesses. Without cyber liability insurance, you might be held liable for the damages your customers suffer, which could put the survival of your business at risk.

2. Home-Based Business 

insuranceIf you run a business out of your home, you might assume that your homeowners insurance policy will cover your equipment and inventory if the unexpected occurs. Unfortunately, business property is specifically excluded from most homeowners policies, so you’ll need to purchase separate coverage to protect those assets.

3. Income Replacement

If a hurricane tears the roof off your building or a fire breaks out, your property insurance will usually pay for repairs. But can you afford to keep paying the bills until you’re ready to reopen? An income replacement clause in your business policy will ensure you have the resources to keep going until repairs are completed. Without it, a single disaster might affect the health of your business long-term.
