Employee Lawsuit Insurance

YouTube player
Employment Practices Liability Insurance

An employee lawsuit could have a huge financial impact on your business. Many small business owners are left vulnerable, mistakenly believing that their business liability insurance policies are inclusive of employment practices liability insurance (EPLI).  First, this is simply not the case. In fact, insurers have strengthened their exclusions regarding EPLI coverage over the years. Even businesses with as few as one employee can be held liable under employment laws.

How do I protect my business from a employee lawsuit? 

First, EPLI is a financial safeguard protecting businesses against employee lawsuits alleging inappropriate or unfair acts that violated their rights. Regardless of merit, claims regarding sexual harassment, discrimination and wrongful termination are included in this category.

Next, according to data collected by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), roughly 42% of all EPLI claims were filed against small private businesses.  Meanwhile, the average claim award hitting $217,000. Also, skimming on coverage can be a costly, devastating mistake. Here’s what you need to know.

EPLI trends

Meanwhile, several states are passing new legislation and Internet hashtags such as #metoo and #timesup are bringing the public’s attention to ethics in the workplace.  EPLI claims continued to soar in 2020.  Also, the biggest rise occurred in claims alleging retaliation, sexual harassment, labor laws violations with gig workers and the gender pay gap.

Next, the key for claims to not impact your business is to frequently review, revise and set in place new internal and personnel policies.  Also, updating handbooks, developing programs that help prevent discriminatory hiring practices will help.  Also, creating detailed job descriptions and expectations for each role are just some of the ways to keep you covered.

Meanwhile, other effective prevention strategies involve developing and protecting a company culture of safety.  Also,  create respect and equity by ensuring that you have a well-implemented, structured and confidential internal complaint reporting process.  Lastly,  develop strict anti-retaliation policies and hosting regular trainings.

How expensive is Employment Practices Liability Insurance?

Premiums. The overall cost of your EPLI policy will vary depending on a few risk factors, such as number of employees, the thoroughness of your anti-discrimination and anti-harassment policies and procedures, and whether your company has ever had any EEOC complaints or lawsuits in the past.

Limitations. Criminal conduct, civil fines, penalties and punitive damages are just some things not covered in a standard policy. Some of your board members and leadership team may be covered, but the rest of your staff and middle managers may not be included in this policy. Be sure to have a clear understanding of which managers are covered under your EPLI policy and where you are left exposed.

How does my business stack up?

What to look out for. Do you know your “risk profile”? Does your policy keep you thoroughly protected under both state and local laws? When researching EPLI coverage, take extra care to carefully understand what types of claims are covered. While less inclusive policies may save you some money in the long run, they can fail to protect you when you need it most.

Even the best employers get sued. Call us today to review potential loss exposures and ensure that you are set up with suitable EPLI coverage. We can customize your coverage to safeguard your business against the ever-increasing world of employment-related risks

Certificate of insurance

A certificate of insurance can be a frustrating need as a business owner. Do you need a law degree to complete certificates of insurance?  It sure feels like it for our staff sometimes.  First, they are more complicated and our insureds customers are  more demanding.  This is because of added language and increased limits our insured’s customers require. 

Why do you need a certificate of insurance

First, certificates of insurance are something you see required by contract but not something many people typically talk about. Below, we’ll detail what a certificate of insurance is, why you need one, when to ask for one and what one typically entails.

Next, certificates of insurance are documents from an insurance company demonstrating  you have a current business insurance policy.

Why do I need to provide certificates of insurance? First, certificates of insurance shows proof that you have insurance.

Also, insurance protects your business from risks and can protect your clients and customers, too.

Cybersecurity Insurance Trends

YouTube player
Cybersecurity Insurance

You may think cybersecurity insurance coverage is too costly for your small business to afford. Also, prices certainly have risen in recent years. But there is a good reason for that: cybersecurity insurance is now more expensive because of the rise in attacks and, thus, claims. Finally, that means it is more important to have coverage than it ever was. Here are five trends that are making that true.

Cybersecurity Risk has increased

Meanwhile, in 2020, amid the COVID-19 pandemic, a widespread and almost instantaneous shift to working from home increased cybersecurity risks. also, that meant many businesses did not have time to thoughtfully consider and implement protocols and best practices for protecting themselves in the new remote world.  For the most part, common areas of weakness include failure to enable multifactor authentication, failure to ensure thorough backups are readily available, failure to patch systems regularly and failure to develop an incident response plan and properly train employees about best practices.

Cybercriminals are getting more creative

Next, you are probably familiar with common cybersecurity buzzwords: malware attacks, phishing, denial of service. The point is there are many ways criminals can gain access to your systems, and as you improve your security, criminals improve their creativity. For example, target a new employee by emailing him or her with a phishing attack under the guise of an onboarding training. This requires constant education and diligence.

Your vendors are a weak point 

Also, it is likely that you have a number of agreements with different vendors. If those agreements are more than a year or two old, they may not include adequate language to account for cybersecurity risks. In other words, you, not the vendor, may be liable for your vendor’s failures to protect your data. Next, you can do everything necessary to ensure your business’s cybersecurity, but when a vendor has access to your information and doesn’t follow the same security protocols, you may still be at risk.

Cybersecurity insurance premiums are rising as claims do

Cybersecurity insurance claims are increasing. They rose by 89% in the fourth quarter of 2021, according to Risk Strategies State of the Market 2022 Report. And payouts are costly to insurers. also, according to NetDiligence’s Cyber Claims Study, between 2016 and 2020, the average cost to an insurer for a cybersecurity claim was $145,000 for small and medium-sized businesses and $10 million for large businesses. That is driving a significant climb in premiums for cyber insurance.

More insurance options are becoming available

Fortunately for small businesses, as cybersecurity insurance becomes increasingly important, ways to get it are increasing. More and more insurers are letting you tailor coverage for emerging risks that are difficult to pinpoint, cyberattacks included.

The bottom line

Also, a cyberattack can put you out of business for days or even weeks. It also creates significant liability and reputational harm. Being proactive about cybersecurity insurance can help protect you. Finally, getting it may not be as costly as you think, thanks to the insurance industry’s adaptability.

We can help you review your current insurance coverage and determine if you need cybersecurity coverage. Call or email us today.

Identity Theft in Small Businesses

YouTube player
Identity theft

Identity theft happens to Millions of Americans that scrupulously guard their identities and personally identifiable information.  Also, they fear that their bank accounts will be compromised, identities stolen and a parade of difficulties will follow them at the hands of those who wish to steal their identities. However, they will often not exercise the same care with their business “identities.” Even for small businesses that try their best with free tools, professional identity thieves can evade this type of protection and gain access to lines of credit or accounts. Also, here are some of the ways businesses can protect their identities.

What is Identity Theft?

First, enroll in a monitoring service. Businesses can enroll in monitoring services that continuously monitor any activity on their companies’ credit reports, looking for any red flags.

Next, establish a FEIN for your business. Also, for many small business owners, using their Social Security numbers and establishing sole proprietorships are the easiest things to do practically. However, this could lead to exposure for both your personal and business finances if either is compromised. Also, small business owners should obtain Employer Identification Numbers (EINs) to separate both and reduce risk.

Protect your data from Identity Theft

Next, keep your data safe with an established data protection system. Keeping your passwords in a safe, protected place is a crucial part of protecting your data. Also, use anti-virus and anti-malware software in addition to a secure password manager.

Cyber Insurance can help

Finally, cyber insurance can be a great way to protect your business. A cyber insurance policy can make all the difference in recovering from significant loss related to identity theft in the unfortunate event it does happen. Call or email us today, and we can review your insurance coverage to make sure your business is protected. We are always here to help.

Buying Business Insurance

YouTube player
Buying business insurance

Buying business insurance but where do you start? Every small business owner needs to manage risk, and obtaining insurance is one of the simplest ways to do that. However, your insurance needs will vary based on a number of factors, including your industry and assets. 

Factors to consider when buying small business insurance

Here are 10 factors to consider to ensure you get the right policies for your needs (thereby meeting legal requirements and minimizing your business risks). 

Research business insurance categories

Your insurance needs will vary, but policies you may want to consider include liability insurance, commercial property insurance, business interruption insurance, workers’ compensation insurance and commercial auto insurance (or hired and non-owned auto insurance). 

Consider the legal requirements

Obtaining commercial insurance may be a legal requirement, depending on your state and industry and even your lenders and clients. For example, businesses with employees generally must carry workers’ compensation insurance. Your clients may also ask you to carry certain coverage before they hire you. Think about the unique risks of your industry. An accountant worries about making a mistake when preparing a client’s tax return, which would require errors and omissions insurance. But a restaurant owner is likely more concerned about a customer contracting salmonella poisoning after eating a meal at his or her establishment, which would require liability coverage. 

Learn what might affect your rates business insurance rates.

Your company location, size and insurable assets will affect your premium and are out of your control. But you can help keep costs down by taking some steps, such as installing fire suppression systems and security alarms, creating a safe work environment and only allowing employees with good driving records to operate your business vehicles. 

Balance coverage with cost

Once you know what type of insurance you need, you will naturally ask how much you need. Use reputable insurance providers and obtain the most coverage you can afford. 

Decide on a deductible

The higher your deductible, the lower your premiums. While you might be tempted to choose a high deductible, you also need to be able to pay the deductible when you need to file a claim. It’s a balancing act. Overestimate your needs. Because the situations you insure against can be devastating, it’s better to buy more than the minimum insurance coverage if you can. 

Work with top-rated providers

When evaluating insurance companies, we can look together at their ratings to find the most reputable ones. Insurance providers with a high rating (usually A) are recognized for their financial stability. You can generally assume they offer reliable coverage and prompt payouts. 

Read the policies thoroughly

Insurance policies are different from insurer to insurer. Be sure you understand what is covered (and what is not covered) under a policy before you sign on the dotted line.

Ask for help

As you might have gathered, insurance contracts are complex legal documents, and it is best to have assistance when entering into one. Obtaining business insurance can be confusing. Call or email us today so we can give you guidance regarding the best insurance products for your business (or if you simply want a better understanding of insurance terms and coverage).

Additional Insured vs. Loss Payee

YouTube player
Certificate of insurance

Don’t confuse additional insured and loss payees because both can be added to your business insurance policy, but they are not the same thing, and you should understand the difference. 

What are additional insureds

First, an additional insured is a person or a business that is exposed to liability in its business relationship with you. To reduce that risk, that third party asks you to name it as an additional insured on your insurance policy declarations page. That is complicated, so let’s use an example. First, imagine that you own the building which your company does business.  Next, you hire a cleaning company to clean your premises. If a visitor is hurt after tripping on some equipment left in a hallway, the cleaning company will be sued.  Next, to protect itself, the cleaning company asks you to list it as an insured on your general liability insurance.  

Meanwhile, you can also be the additional insured. For example, you may own the cleaning company. In this case, you would want to think about asking for additional status any time your own business’s legal liability increases. 

Loss Payees vs Additional Insured 

Next, as a loss payee, on the other hand, is a person or business that has first rights to insurance payments.  For example, this would happen after a property loss. That may sound complicated, so let’s use another example. Next, say you’re a plumber, and you take out a loan to purchase a truck. Meanwhile, the bank requires you to use the truck as collateral against the loan.  If you stop making payments, the bank can repossess the truck. Now, what happens if you damage the truck in an accident.  Then you file a claim with your auto insurance company.  In theory, you could stop making loan payments, refuse to repair the vehicle and keep the insurance money.

How Claims and Banks change the additional insured and loss payee dynamic

The bank would be out of luck (and money). So the bank asks you to name it as a loss payee on the declarations page of your auto insurance policy. Next,  you file a damage claim and your auto insurance company must notify the bank.  Any check issued to pay for repairs must be made out to you and the bank. Finally,  you and the bank are protected.  Know that it is not possible to add a loss payee or an additional insured to every small business insurance policy.  We can help you determine whether someone’s request to be added as an additional insured or loss payee is appropriate.  

How much does an Additional Insured cost? 

Adding an additional insured increases your premium, but it will be a relatively nominal charge compared to the cost of the policy itself. And adding a loss payee typically will not increase your premium because it creates no additional risk. We’d be happy to review your business insurance needs and determine if you are adequately protected.

Insurance Contract Elements

YouTube player
Insurance contract

An insurance contract is the backbone of every established business’s operation plan, offering reassurance of financial stability should the worst-case scenario come to fruition. Understanding the elements of an insurance contract can seem daunting when it applies to a business versus a person. Below is a brief guide to the components of an insurance contract that make it legally binding for both parties.

Offer and Acceptance for an Insurance Contract

When you seek an insurance policy, you fill out an application that is legally known as an offer. Meanwhile, acceptance occurs when the insurance company formally issues the policy to the policy holder.

Legal Consideration

Next, legal consideration refers to the dollar value of the premiums you agree to pay and the dollar limit of the coverage the insurance company provides in return. Also, this pertains to home and auto insurance as well as commercial insurance policies.

Competent Parties

Also, insurance contracts are only valid if both parties are of sound mind and body, both parties are at least the legal age of majority and the insurance company is licensed in your state.

Free Consent

Next, both parties in any insurance contract must enter into the contract of their own volition, with no fraud, misrepresentation, intimidation or coercion involved.

Legal Purpose

For the most part, the insurance contract must adhere to all state-specific laws that apply to the contract and cover only legal activities.

Insurable Interest in an Insurance Contract

Also, you have an insurable interest when you benefit financially from whatever is being insured (and you cannot get coverage for something in which you have no insurable interest).

Utmost Good Faith

This is very important it means that both parties have acted without any type of deception, omission or misrepresentation.

Material Facts

Next, the material facts are those things the insurance company needs to know in order to insure your business correctly. Also, it is very important to tell your insurance agent everything about your business so they may insure it correctly.


Full and True Disclosure in the Insurance Contract

In an insurance contract both parties are required to completely disclose all material facts pertinent to the insurance policy.

 Principle of Indemnity.

The insurance company will compensate you with a cash settlement if a covered loss occurs.

Doctrine of Subrogation

This says that the insurance company can pursue reimbursement from a third party that caused the covered insurance loss.

Warranties

Warranties are the promises specified in an insurance contract, such as conditions that can trigger a claim and the actions that will be taken by the insurance company as a result of the claim.

Conditions

Conditions are what determines whether a claim will be paid. Also, they include you paying the policy premiums, notifying the insurance company in a timely manner and such if you have an insurance claim.

Limitations

Meanwhile, limitations are the parameters of the insurance coverage, such as maximum amounts that will be paid for a specific type of loss. This could be an auto insurance loss or a business auto insurance loss.

As you might have gathered, insurance contracts are complex legal documents, and it’s best to have assistance when entering into one. Please call or email us today to get help with your commercial insurance coverage.

Starting a trucking company

YouTube player
trucking insurance quotes in Arizona

Starting a trucking company or do you already own one? Know that you are going to be a magnet for attorneys and people looking to capitalize on any accident you may have.  Today, I am going to try help you minimize this risk by looking at this problem from the side of a victim that was just in an accident with you or one of your trucks.

Why Trucking Insurance can be so Expensive!

 

Given the sheer size of semi trucks, accidents involving them generally result in more serious injuries and body damage to vehicles.

 According to the National Highway Safety Administration approximately 510,000 crashes were reported to police nationwide in 2019 that involved large trucks. Of those, 114,000 resulted in injury. In 82% of those cases, the fatalities were not occupants of the large truck.  That is 510,000 opportunities for you not to have the correct coverage or a mishap that could cost you your company.

Cars typically weigh 3200-6000 pounds while tractors can weigh 33,000-80,000 pounds. Large trucks also generally are taller and sit higher off the ground, which can result in cars sliding under commercial trucks in accidents at great peril to the occupants.

18 wheeler truck accident settlement claims are similar to car accident claims with a few key differences. As a trucking company owner,  the stakes are high and more complicated for you in an accident. I will discuss these differences in detail so you can protect your rights.

A guide to reduce trucking insurance premiums for a trucking company

What Are the Most Common Causes of Truck Accidents?

Understanding Trucking Regulations

How attorney’s Show Fault in Semi Truck Accidents

What Should You Do After a Truck Accident?

What Are the Most Common Cause of Truck Accidents for a trucking company?

A good place to start trying to make sense of your truck accident claim is to understand some of the most common causes for them.  This will help train drivers correctly to avoid potential claims.

What Are the Most Common Cause of Truck Accidents?

A good place to start trying to make sense of your truck accident claim is to understand some of the most common causes for them.

  • 1). Driver Fatigue—  This leads to tired truck drivers.
  • 2). Failure to maintain safe following distance—
  • 3). Unsafe lane change/visibility problems— 
  • 4). Drug or alcohol use— 
  • 5). Defective equipment or incorrectly loaded cargo— 

Understand Duty of Care and Driver Negligence for Trucking Companies

Drivers of passenger vehicles are required by law to practice a reasonable “duty of care” to look out for one another on the road, follow traffic laws, and try to avoid collisions. Because trucks are much more capable of causing catastrophic accidents, truckers are held to a higher standard.

When it comes time for an insurance company or jury to determine fault in a trucking accident, they will expect truckers to follow their duty of care, and in addition, they will generally look in two areas:

  • Violations of state and federal trucking regulation
  • Evidence of negligence

Due to this higher standard truckers need to adhere to, courts will often view any violation of regulation as negligent action.

 Understand Trucking Regulations

The trucking industry in the US is regulated by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), a department of the Department of Transportation (DOT).

Their regulations are lengthy and mandate how a trucker should behave in essentially all aspects of operating a commercial truck.

These regulations are recognized for their safety benefits on the roadways.

Two of the most common regulations that get violated are:

Commercial Drivers License (CDL) Requirements – Anyone operating a semi truck, tractor trailer or 18 wheeler must have completed their CDL training. These standards vary slightly state to state, but they all must meet a baseline federal DOT requirement.

CDL training teaches truckers:

  • Maneuvering techniques, parking, backing up, etc.
  • Defensive driving practices
  • Maintenance and safety measures, etc
  • How to properly handle hazardous materials

Typically included in CDL licensure is a physical fitness examination and a drug screening process. 

Logbook rules – Another legal requirement placed on truckers is that they maintain a logbook. This book records information such as:

  • Route details, delivery dates, etc
  • Weight of the truck
  • The number of hours per day a trucker is working

Here are some other things you can control to operate a safe company

  • Was your trucker using their cellphone? (estimates show using a phone increases the chances of an accident by 23 times)
  • Does your driver have a record of accidents or criminal behavior?
  • Was your driver under the influence of medications, narcotics or alcohol?
  • Did your driver fail to account for blind spots when changing lanes or parking?
  • What is your drivers financial background? Do they have any large outstanding debts?

In terms of a trucking accident claim, showing that a trucker violated their duty of care, a trucking regulation, and/or traffic laws will be something attorneys try to expose.

Here is what you should do after a Trucking Insurance Accident

Truck accidents are typically more complicated than car accidents so if you’re in one be sure to follow a few best practices. These include:

  • Call the police— Even if the accident seems minor call the authorities, get a police report or the responding officer’s contact information at the least.
  • Seek medical attention— If you or other parties are injured get them help as soon as possible. Call an ambulance, administer first aid if you know how, or get in to see a doctor first thing (if injuries are non-urgent).
  • Gather information— Document everything you can from photos to witness statements to surveillance video. Take notes, the more information you have the better.
  • Contact your insurance company— File a claim with your insurance carrier and be aware you might be contacted by the other party’s insurance company. 
  • Trucking companies held Liable and Your Best Course of Action

 

When it comes time to figure out who is responsible for your damages in a trucking accident, the number of possibilities is far greater than a normal car accident. If you were in a accident with your semi, the possible parties that might be held liable include:

  • The trucker
  • The owner of the truck or tractor trailer
  • The company who loaded the cargo on the truck
  • The manufacturer of the truck
  • The person or company who leased the truck from another party

In many cases, all these parties may all be involved with the claim. 

If I haven’t scared you away, I will let you know that trucking accidents are complicated, unfortunately frequent, and often result in serious injuries/fatalities. Try to minimize or eliminate the top causes of trucking accidents and your company will be successful.

  • Truck accidents are often due to driver fatigue, drug use, improper cargo or unsafe lane changes.
  • The key to any claim is showing fault. With truck accidents, this can be done through breach of the duty of care or violated regulations.
  • After a truck accident be sure to call the police, seek medical treatment quickly, gather information and notify your insurance company in a timely manner.
  • Figuring out who to claim against can be tricky but it usually boils down to the driver or the trucking company. If in doubt consult a legal professional.

Professional Liability Insurance

Professional Liability Insurance

Professional liability insurance, also known as errors and omissions (E&O) insurance, is an extremely important part of the professional life of any professional.

Most jobs need a license to be able to do it. Even if there is not a physical license, you still have rules that you must follow. For example, doctors have a rule that they must follow, and so do lawyers..

For example, if you are an attorney or accountant, there are rules and regulations that govern what you can do when it comes to the books and documents of your clients.

If these rules aren’t followed, you could be facing professional liability insurance claims.

Cost of Professional Insurance

If you work as a doctor or an engineer, you will have to meet certain standards.

If these standards aren’t followed and somebody is injured as a result, you could be on the hook for professional liability insurance claims.

Insurance can cover things like:

– Breach of duty:

What if you accidentally destroy a document that you were supposed to keep and backup, and the client loses significant money or property as a result?

– Malpractice:

What if your diagnosis is incorrect and the patient gets worse, needs further treatment, or dies because of this?

– Wrongful termination:

What if your client is unhappy with your work, or what you did for them?

– Employment related claims : What if one of your employees does something irresponsible on the job and causes an accident that hurts somebody else?

There are many professional liability cases. These are some of the highest profile examples.

Who Needs Liability Insurance

If you are in any of the professions mentioned above, it is important to buy professional liability insurance.

If you want to be an accountant, lawyer or engineer, you should buy professional liability insurance. This insurance covers many types of claims and liabilities that can happen if you work in one of these professions and do not have this insurance. If you don’t have this insurance, your license could be taken away and your career could be over.

Professional liability insurance helps protect you from people who want to sue you. Maybe they think that you did something bad or didn’t do something good.

Errors and Omissions Insurance

You may also want to consider other types of specialty insurance that cover things like:

– If you work in the securities business and you miss important files or do other things wrong, this can lead to someone suing you.

– If you are a director or officer of a company, your professional liability insurance will protect against any claims that may come up.

Professional liability insurance is important for people who want to do high risk jobs. It will protect you if you make a mistake and someone’s future is at stake. You need to be careful and then this will not cost you everything.

Do you have any professional liability insurance? If not, you should get some. It protects you if someone gets hurt or your work messes up.

There are many different kinds of insurance you can buy to protect yourself. One kind is professional liability insurance, which helps if someone sues you for work you did.

Know What You’re Protected Against

When you do research about professional liability insurance, you might find a lot of different information.

You might not understand all of it. That’s why you should work with an experienced agent who can help you figure out what coverages you need and answer any questions that pop up.

Professional liability insurance will help protect you if you make mistakes, like if someone can’t go to court because their information is wrong.

– Employment Claims: This is when an employer fires you without a good reason. It can lead to losing your professional license if it happens often.

– Malpractice Insurance: When you are a professional and make an error that leads to someone getting injured, they might sue for malpractice. A lot of times there are no guarantees,

Types of Errors and Omissions Insurance

Some people have insurance for when they work. This is called professional liability insurance. It helps pay for the cost if someone gets hurt while they are working because of something you did.

Having professional liability insurance may help protect you from a lawsuit if people say you did something wrong.

If you are a doctor, lawyer, or other professional who provides care, make sure you have insurance to protect yourself. You will need this because the insurance only covers cases where your care was not good.

If you are sued for malpractice, your professional liability insurance can help cover the costs of it. It is an excellent investment because if you are sued, it will help protect your financial future.


If you want to know more about professional liability insurance coverage, call your local agent.

They can do anything from painting, drywall, carpentry work to any other job that must be done on a building site. This makes it important for them to have good insurance as they may come into contact with hazardous materials or tools.

A general contractor needs to work with insurance companies that are licensed in the states where you are working. You should not only require that they are licensed, but also that they have an “A” rated financial strength rating. This will help protect your company against any liabilities.

Workers Comp Audit

YouTube player
workers comp audit

A workers comp audit is a review of your records to make sure that you have paid the right amount for workers’ comp insurance. The auditor can do this by mail, phone, or in-person.

If you are selected for an audit, it will usually be during the months after your current policy renews. You might get a letter or phone call saying that you are being audited.

Workers Compensation Audit

Your workers’ comp insurance company will give you a form to show what they want records for an audit. Save these records together so you know exactly where they are and can find them quickly.

The other records that will be requested during an audit include: proof of your business registration, proof of workers’ compensation coverage on each employee, payroll records (including gross pay), accident reports (and copies), forms submitted by employees filing injury claims (and copies), medical bills paid by the insurer or employer, and any other documents that might support or refute worker’s comp claims.

The person who reviews these materials will calculate how much workers’ compensation is owed. They will use the information from the wage report and payroll.

Workers Compensation Premium Audit

If you disagree with the amount that they say you owe, then you can provide extra documents to prove differently. If your records are not clear enough, then an audit may be done. This will cost money for the auditor who comes to your business site.

When an audit is finalized and complete, the auditor notifies both you and your workers’ comp insurance company of its findings. If anything is wrong with what was paid to you or what should have been paid, the auditor will tell both parties how much money is owed. The insurer then sends a bill for payment along with a copy of the audit, and you must make your payment within 30 days.

You will have to pay money to the insurance company every year. If the auditor finds that you paid too much, then they will give you some of your money back. The person who audits your account can be someone from an insurance company or someone who calls on the phone. Usually state law says that only certain people can do this.

– The director of a state division of workers’ comp or his or her designated representative

– A third party chosen by agreement between both parties

Workers Comp Audit Tips

If you are about to have an audit, it’s a good idea to read over your policy and call your workers’ compensation insurer. You can also check with your state insurance department or consult an attorney who specializes in this area to learn what records you should be keeping during the year relative to workers’ comp coverage for your business.

Why hire a workers’ comp audit service? Professional audits give you the chance to find errors and make corrections. You also know that your records are accurate when someone comes to check on them.

An audit is when you check to see if employees are meeting your states requirements. You can also use an audit to prove that the employer is following the laws. An audit can protect you from fines or penalties if they find any problems or discrepancies.

Workers’ compensation audits should be easy to do once you get the right documents and training. You will need to ask your insurance company for help if you are not sure how to handle the audit. It’s best to get an attorney who knows workers’ comp laws before starting your audit. This way you don’t break any rules.

Professional Insurance Strategies helps companies with the payroll of their employees. They make sure that if someone is working for you, their salary is listed on your company’s payroll. If it wasn’t, then you might not be paying enough or not at all. You need to do an audit of your previous years too. That way, you know how much money you should be paying each year and can make sure to pay it on time.

Workers Compensation Audit Subcontractors

Underwriting workers’ comp insurance policies is based on many factors. The state requires that you provide sufficient information to qualify for a policy and show that your company complies with regulations about work conditions. If there are any problems, carriers could deny future applications or cancel existing policies. They may also charge penalties against employers who do not tell them of changes in work status (such as adding employees) within the timeframes required by law.

 You need to do audits of your company to prevent this from happening. Then you can fix the problems before they affect your ability to buy workers’ comp insurance at a good price.

Professional Insurance Strategies works with companies and people who need to get their work comp audits done. We also help them set the price of their insurance premiums. We can analyze your company’s claims history and loss data, which tells you exactly what you need to pay for workers’ comp coverage based upon your business type and size.

General Liability Insurance

Do you thing you need general liability insurance? If you are a small business owner, you always need some kind of protection to safeguard yourself and your business. You might think you have everything under control, but even a single misfortune can be baleful. To avoid anything like that, it is advised to have professional insurance coverage. Read further to learn more.

 

This blog will help you understand the importance of general liabilities. Having liability coverage signifies a level of authority which can reduce some of the concern about your business. There are so many different policies that take care of the rights of both owners and clients and the claims made by either one of them. In this we will discuss General Liability Insurance and Professional Liability Insurance. Being an owner of any kind of business, you need to represent your business in the best way. You have to represent yourself as reliable and answerable. With General Liability Insurance, you can be at ease knowing that you have protection against unexpected incidents.

 

General Liability Insurance (GLI)  is designed to defend you and your business from claims involving bodily and property injuries resulting from your business. Purchasing insurance shows that you are well aware and understand the risks involved in your business. Here are few benefits of having General Liability Insurance.

 

1) Protection against bodily injury claims:

 

  • If the client trips over your tools or equipment and hurts his leg or hand at your business place, the client might sue you for his injury. However, if you have General Liability Insurance, there is nothing to fear.

 

2) Protection against property damage claims:

 

  • Many accidents can happen at the site like bodily injury. Another damage that can commonly occur is property damage. For example, if while at the work site a worker accidentally drops a tool and it causes damage to the newly laid wooden flooring of the property, the client can charge you for the damage. So in that case, the GLI will cover it all.

 

3) Reputational Harm:

 

  • As a business owner, you have to make sure that you maintain the reputation of your business and gain the trust of the clients. Depending upon your venture, the client may require you to have a GLI certificate.

 

Apart from the coverage provided by the General Liability Insurance. There are certain things that are not covered in the general liability insurance, like employee injuries or any illness. For such claims, there are other insurance that you can opt for. This insurance doesn’t give a claim for the error or the omissions your company provides.

There are other claims that are not taken into account of the GLI. Claims like loss suffered by the client because of the professional advice or service they received from your firm.

 

 

These type of declaration usually happen in the business profession like engineers, consultants, counselors, real estate companies etc. Such business requires Professional Liability Insurance that delivers professional services or gives professional advice to the customers buying this liability insurance.

 

 

Professional liability Insurance is also known as Medical malpractice insurance or error and omissions insurance, based on the profession. PLI imparts protection when the owner is sued because their work or services doesn’t meet clients expectations, incorrect advice, or failing to deliver a service. The biggest advantage of PLI is that it can save your business expense if you have to make a claim when sued by a client.

 

 

The Takeaway

 

In case you don’t have the PLI, you will be asked to pay fine and legal fees. Coverage in liability insurance is good if availed during the policy period. Incidents that occurred before buying policy will not be covered in the policy.

Business Interruption Insurance

Why do you need business interruption insurance?  If you have an interruption in your business, you need to restart it as soon as possible. To do this, you need money. Business interruption insurance will give you the money that is needed during the time of restoration.

Business income insurance can be classified as Business Income & Extra Expense Insurance and Business Loss Income Insurance. This article explains both types of business income insurance and how they may benefit your company’s risk management program to help you deal with disasters, such as fire, flood or earthquake.

Business Income & Extra Expense Coverage

A business income policy pays for losses that happen because of the damage or destruction of your business property. It does not cover losses like money spent on overhead, taxes, and other costs that would not be incurred if it wasn’t for the loss. The limits vary by contract and you need to read it carefully before buying one.

A “period of restoration” insurance policy can protect you if your business property is damaged. This type of policy will provide money for you to restore or replace the equipment you need to resume operations. Period of restoration insurance does not cover lost profits or other indirect losses, like when your business income is interrupted.

Business Loss Income Insurance

This kind of insurance protects a business from losing money if something happens to it. It does not cover things like physical damage or the business being closed because of what happened.

This insurance type is sometimes called Actual Loss, Sustained Business Income coverage. It is usually purchased in conjunction with property insurance. It can provide you protection for up to 12 months while business income and extra expense coverage only provides protection for 3 months.

Business interruption insurance is when your business can’t operate because of some kind of disaster. For example, if there’s a big power outage on your street; you may be able to get money for that.

You can file a claim for business insurance anytime within two years of the loss. It is best to tell them about losses as soon as possible so that they have time to investigate it and figure out what to do with your claim.

Base premium rates are determined based on a formula that takes into account many variables. The main variable is location. For example, premium rates will be higher in an area with more expensive homes or businesses.

Period of Restoration

Coordination of Benefits: When there is a business interruption, your company pays for some of the losses. However, sometimes you also have losses from other insurance policies. COB provisions let you get full reimbursement without having to file a separate claim with your company and another one with someone else. A person is usually bound to the terms and conditions specified in their insurance policy.

There are different amounts of insurance for business income and it is important to know what you need. You can get $5,000, $10,000 or $25,000. Typically, business interruption coverage will pay out one time per year. If you want to pay for extra expenses each time they happen though, you can buy them separately. You can also get coverage that changes with the seasons and pays for your extra expense every time.

Additionally, if you have a business that is at your house, you should get a policy from an insurance company. That way it will cover the cost of repairs. If you do not get this, then any losses will be more expensive. So, this is a type of risk that would not be covered by your insurance. You need to know for sure if you want this policy because it could change the rest of your life. Know what you are getting into before you do it.

Business Income Coverage

There are two types of losses when it comes to your business. The first is when you lose money because of damage (to the property). For example, if you lost $500 and had to pay $400 in rent every month, then you would need to buy more insurance. The second type is when there is no damage but there’s a business interruption. That means that people can’t come to your store, house, or restaurant because it was not open for some reason such as weather or a natural disaster. If this happens and your policy doesn’t already cover this situation, then you will need to buy more insurance from somewhere else. Should something happen to you rendering you unable to work, then your business may not be able to get coverage. The insurance company will not pay for anything unless it was hit by a bad thing.

Next, the period of restoration (POR) is the amount of time it takes to recover from a loss. It should take as long as it needs to but not so long that business does not flow properly. The POR should be specified in writing and different policies may have different time periods for this.

Property insurance is sometimes added to the cost of a business policy. It protects business buildings, contents, and personal property against perils like fire, lightning, windstorms or hail. There are options to add more coverage for specific types of perils.

Perils: Loss of Income Insurance

Perils: The perils named in a business insurance policy are probably the same as those, such as fire, windstorms, hail and so forth. But there are some perils that you might not think of. For example, “internal combustion,” which covers damage caused by your vehicle or machinery while they are being used for business purposes. Remember that property coverage does not typically include any liability protection. Therefore, you must purchase this separately from a commercial general liability policy.

Business income insurance usually has a way to include business interruption coverage. However, you have to buy it with property coverage or actual loss sustained business income coverage. Then if you have seasonal extra expense, it can also include business interruption coverage.

If your business loses income for three months, these are the types of insurance that might help. They are similar to homeowner’s coverage in what they cover. It is though, more expensive because there are not any perils that make you pay extra for this type of insurance. In addition, some insurers don’t do this kind of coverage. Some people can only get it on a special event.

Losing Business Income

If something happens to your business and you can’t make money, it could be very bad for your company. Moreover, should a fire or an attack like 9-11 were to occur, people wouldn’t be able to work due to premises closures. That means that they won’t make any money until the store is fixed and they can open again. They might not have enough savings to cover it and they would need help from someone else in order to get back on their feet quickly. This could mean bankruptcy if nobody helps them out with money because there are often limited insurance policies that come with normal insurance policies.

Business interruption insurance covers financial losses that result from interruptions to normal business activities caused by certain listed events such as:

1.Fire

2.Windstorm or hail

3.Explosion

4.Riot or civil commotion

5.Aircraft, vehicle or other transportation damage

6.Breakdown of equipment through no fault of the insured party

While most business insurance policies do come with property coverage, there are certain risks that may not be covered under this policy including:

1.Power surge damage

2.Water damage sometimes referred to as flood, water or seepage damage due to partial submersion in any liquid – for example if water washes over your business premises from rainfall outside the building while it is closed for business during inclement weather conditions. This can result in extensive damage to your assets even if your building’s heating, ventilation and air conditioning system or sprinkler system fails to activate.

Business Income vs. Business Interruption

Business interruption insurance is meant to cover any money that you lose because of a covered peril. If there is damage, your company might not be able to work at their normal place. This can include lost income or extra expenses because they need to work elsewhere for a while.

The term “business income” can refer to several things depending on the nature of your business including:

1.Your overall company revenue or income that is generated by the sale of goods and/or services. This amount may be broken down into several factors such as products sold, number of customers served, etc.

The money you make personally from your business activities including wages for employees who are paid on commission, bonuses, vacation pay and other benefits workers may derive from their employment status with a firm. Overall yearly revenue determined by the number of hours worked multiplied by an hourly wage rate should also be included if it falls into this category. Some states require that all workers receive a minimum salary regardless of how many hours they work in order to be classified as “full time”.

3. The total amount of money your business makes in a year after all factors such as revenue, salaries and any other expenses have been accounted for.

It does not include amounts that are designated for future commitments or amounts that have not yet been paid out to the owner or shareholders.
