For many families with young children, COVID has made the idea of in-home child care more appealing than ever before. However, while the convenience and flexibility can’t be beat, the liability exposure is more complicated than you might imagine. Are you prepared to respond to the risks?
Businesses typically need general liability and property insurance, so many business owners opt in when presented with a business owners program (BOP). It’s straightforward and offers bundled discounts, but it doesn’t provide much wiggle room.
Like a “no substitutions” lunch special, you take what you get and find yourself dressing up the bland parts with a side dish (which adds to the bill). Suddenly your lunch special isn’t such a deal. The same goes for a BOP. Insuring business risk exposure can get tricky – and expensive – especially when your risk exposure doesn’t fit in the box.
If your risk liability spills over the usual lines, you might be better off going for a commercial package policy (CPP) for better insurance coverage, customization and overall savings.
Growing awareness of the serious, long-term effects of pollution, increased regulatory scrutiny and legal liability have created a demand for environmental insurance. Also known as environmental impairment liability and pollution liability, environmental insurance pays for claims related to the release of pollutants, including bodily injury, property damage, cleanup and business interruption.
This insurance came about as a result of the environmental movement. In the 1970s, Congress passed a series of major bills aimed at conservation, protection, recovery and pollution liability. Landmark laws included the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA), known as the Superfund Act.
