Liability Insurance for Business Resilience

Liability insurance is a type of insurance designed to protect the policyholder from financial liabilities arising from injuries to individuals or property damage. Additionally, it offers coverage for legal expenses and debts incurred when the insured party is determined to be legally liable. However, claims related to deliberate harm, criminal actions, and contractual liabilities are excluded from this policy.

Types of Liability Insurance offered by Money Marche

Check out what type of liability related insurance we deal in: 

General Liability Insurance: It provides coverage for bodily injury, property damage, and personal injury claims that may arise from your business operations. It also covers legal defense costs.

Professional Liability Insurance (Errors and Omissions Insurance): This insurance is often used by professionals, such as doctors, lawyers, architects, and consultants, to protect against claims of negligence or errors in their professional services.

Product Liability Insurance: Manufacturers, distributors, and retailers can purchase this type of insurance to protect themselves against claims related to defects in products they make, sell, or distribute.

Directors and Officers (D&O) Insurance: This insurance protects the personal assets of directors and officers of a company in case they are sued for alleged wrongful acts or mismanagement while running the company.

Employment Practices Liability Insurance (EPLI): EPLI covers claims related to wrongful employment practices, such as discrimination, harassment, wrongful termination, and wage and hour violations.

Cyber Liability Insurance: This insurance is designed to protect businesses against the financial consequences of data breaches, hacking, and other cyberattacks.

Employers’ Liability Insurance: This coverage is included as part of workers’ compensation insurance. It provides protection to employers against lawsuits from employees who suffer work-related injuries or illnesses that are not covered by workers’ compensation.

Benefits of Liability Insurance

Here are a few benefits of this insurance policy:

  • Liability insurance protects from the financial consequences of lawsuits, legal costs, settlements, and judgments.
  • It safeguards assets, preventing the depletion of personal savings, property, or business assets in the event of a lawsuit.
  • For businesses, liability insurance can ensure continuity by preventing financial setbacks that could otherwise lead to closure.
  • Liability insurance typically covers damages to third parties, such as customers, clients, or bystanders, reducing your personal liability.
  • Having liability insurance can boost your credibility and trustworthiness, attracting clients, partners, and customers who value responsible risk management.
  • Liability insurance is generally cost-effective compared to the potential financial burdens of lawsuits and settlements.

What is Covered and not Covered in Liability Insurance?

Here are some general guidelines on what is covered and not covered in liability insurance:

Covered in Liability Insurance:
Bodily Injury: It covers medical expenses, legal fees, and compensation for injuries sustained by someone else due to your negligence or fault. This can include injuries from accidents on your property or while driving your vehicle.
Property Damage: It covers the cost of repairing or replacing someone else's property that you damaged or destroyed accidentally. This can include damage to vehicles, buildings, or personal belongings.
Legal Defense: Liability insurance covers the cost of legal representation and defense if you are sued for a covered incident. This can include lawyer fees, court costs, and settlements or judgments.
Personal Liability: Liability insurance covers personal liability claims, such as defamation or invasion of privacy. This coverage can protect you from lawsuits related to non-physical harm.
Additional Coverage: Depending on the policy, liability insurance may also cover additional costs such as first-aid expenses, court-ordered judgments, and even loss of income in some cases.
Not Covered in Liability Insurance:
Your Own Injuries or Property Damage: Liability insurance is intended to cover damages and injuries to third parties, not yourself or your own property. You would need other types of insurance, such as health insurance or property insurance, for coverage in these cases.
Intentional Acts: Liability insurance does not cover intentional acts or criminal activities. If you intentionally cause harm or damage, your policy may not provide coverage.
Business Activities: If you are using your personal liability insurance for business activities, it may not provide coverage. Business liability insurance, like commercial general liability insurance, is required for business-related liabilities.
Environmental Liability: Liability insurance often excludes coverage for pollution or environmental damage. Specialized environmental liability insurance is available for such risks.
Acts of War: Liability insurance excludes coverage for damages caused by acts of war or terrorism.

Who Should Consider Liability Insurance?

Money Marche recommends that anyone who faces potential legal risks or financial exposure due to their actions or operations should strongly consider purchasing liability insurance.

Business Owners: Entrepreneurs, small business owners, and corporations should invest in liability insurance to protect against claims arising from accidents, injuries, or property damage that may occur on their premises or caused by their products or services.
Professionals: Doctors, lawyers, consultants, and other professionals should consider professional liability insurance (malpractice insurance) to safeguard themselves against claims of negligence or errors in their work.
Homeowners: Homeowners can benefit from liability coverage to protect themselves in case someone is injured on their property, and they are found liable.
Nonprofit Organizations: Nonprofits can purchase liability insurance to protect their directors, officers, and volunteers from personal liability in case of legal disputes.
Contractors and Tradespeople: Those in the construction or trade industries should carry liability insurance to cover potential accidents or property damage while working on clients' properties.
