Insurance Dos And Don’ts For Small Businesses In Florida

Staff | 04/01/2024

Owning a small business in Florida has its risks. Commercial insurance coverage protects your business from unexpected incidents that can result in major financial losses, or even cause you to close your doors. Florida General Liability Insurance, Property, Commercial, Auto and Workers' Compensation Insurance are essential tools for most businesses today. 

Liability Insurance

Florida General Liability Insurance specifically protects the assets of your business if it is sued for something it may have – or have not – done to cause personal injury or property damage. This coverage protects your company from injuries stemming from on-site accidents; and injuries or damages incurred as a result of using goods or services sold on-premises. In addition to the financial limits of the policy, coverage can be designed to cover supplemental payments for attorney fees, court costs and other expenses associated with a claim or the defense of a liability lawsuit.

A common scenario: A customer comes to your place of  business and, unfortunately, ends up getting hurt in a fall. If you don’t have General Liability Insurance, you could be facing significant costs for medical bills, legal fees and any compensation that a court finds you responsible for. This can be catastrophic for a small business. General Liability Insurance prevents these incidents from derailing your entrepreneurial dreams.

As an independent Florida insurance agency for more than 60 years, the Massey, Clark, Fisher team has the knowledge and experience to customize the insurance programs you need to limit your risk exposure. 

Other Important Policies

Florida state regulations determine basic insurance requirements. However, it’s important to keep in mind that these insurance components alone may not be enough to protect your business from common risks. 

Cyber Insurance

In today’s digital ecosystem, cyber threats loom large. With an appropriate Cyber Insurance policy in place, you can insure losses resulting from ransomware and cyber attacks.

Commercial Property Insurance

Most business owner policies protect your structures from weather or robbery-related losses. Commercial Property Insurance adds coverage to recover furniture, equipment, inventory and more.
