Personal Insurance
What is Auto Insurance?

Auto insurance gives you protection against financial loss if you have an accident. The auto insurance contract is between you and the insurance company. In return for paying your regular car insurance premium, the insurance company agrees to pay for your losses as outlined in your auto policy.

Your auto insurance gives you property, liability and medical coverage:

  • Property coverage compensates you for theft or damage of your car.
  • Liability coverage compensates others for bodily injury or property damage caused by you.
  • Medical coverage provides for cost of medical treatment for injuries, rehabilitation and in some cases lost wages.
What is Home Insurance?

Home insurance is one of those things that is not required but is necessary. It is a standard policy that provides you protection against many disasters to your home. Home insurance also gives you liability protection, in case of any injuries and real estate property damage caused by you or your family members to other people. Also, the policy covers damage caused by your household pets. However, some damage and special cases require supplemental home insurance coverage.

Business Insurance
  • Property Insurance: Property insurance insures against loss or damage to the location of the business and its contents. It can also insure the property of others in your control when the loss occurs.
  • Liability Insurance: Liability insurance insures against liability legally imposed upon your business because of the negligence of the business or its employees.
  • Commercial Auto: Your personal automobile policy does NOT cover vehicles used by your business. If your business uses vehicles or anything that is required to be titled by your state, then you need a commercial auto policy. Commercial auto coverage insures against property damage to vehicles and damage caused to others by those vehicles.
  • Workers Compensation: You will need to insure your employees against on-the-job injuries. Workers' compensation is a system where the employee is not allowed, by statute, to sue their employer for on-the-job injuries; but, in return, the employer must participate in a system that provides nearly automatic payment to the employee in case of injury for medical bills and damages.
  • Business Interruption: Business interruption insurance insures against loss or damage to the cash flow and profit of a business caused by the business being unable to operate because of interruption.
