Commercial insurance is a vital investment for businesses of all sizes. It provides critical financial protection against a myriad of risks, including property damage, liability claims, and employee-related risks.

As independent agents, Bruce and Robyn Weinstein dedicate themselves to finding the most comprehensive coverage at competitive rates.

Types of Commercial Insurance Policies

Now, let’s delve into the specific types of commercial insurance policies your business might need:

Commercial Property Insurance: This covers damage to your business property due to events like fire, storms, theft, and other covered perils.

General Liability Insurance: This policy protects your business from financial loss should your business be deemed responsible for property damage or physical injury caused to a third party.

Workers’ Compensation Insurance: If an employee gets injured or becomes ill due to work-related activities, this insurance covers their medical expenses and lost wages.

Business Interruption Insurance: In case a disaster or unexpected event causes your business to temporarily close, this insurance covers loss of income during the closure.

Professional Liability Insurance: Also known as Errors and Omissions (E&O) Insurance, this covers you against claims of negligence, failure to deliver services, or making mistakes in professional services.

Bruce and Robyn can help you understand these policies and how they can be tailored to protect your unique business.

commercial insurance for small businesses

When it comes to small businesses, insurance needs can be just as diverse as those of larger entities. However, it’s common for small business owners to assume they’re less susceptible to risk due to their size. The reality is, even small businesses face considerable risks that can be financially devastating. The right commercial insurance policies can be a lifeline in the event of unexpected incidents. Bruce and Robyn Weinstein specialize in advising small businesses, ensuring they have the robust coverage they need without breaking the bank.

Its coverage extends across various scenarios including driving between different work locations, visiting current or prospective customers, transporting employees, and performing business-related deliveries.
