Owning a business brings with it many costs and trying to eliminate some costs that are deemed not as important, such as additional insurance coverage. However, this is a decision you may regret at a later date. Florida general liability insurance is a product that aims to protect your business from the cost of litigation and damages if you are sued. There are other types of liability coverage available too, aimed at covering a range of other risks associated with negligence claims.

With every business having differing needs, there is no one size fits all policy for liability insurance. Insurance companies will determine the level of risk associated with your individual operations when determining the cost of your coverage. Factors they may take into consideration include things like:

  • What products or services do you supply?
  • Do you manufacture on-site or off-site?
  • Do you have customers visiting your business?
  • What is the target market for your intended product or service?
  • What is your insurance history and how long has the business been operating?

Looking at all the variables, your insurance company will then assess the risk to your business. Your insurance agent could be the best person to speak to for answers to your questions about Florida general liability insurance. Together you can find the appropriate plan for your business.
