Why You Need Business Insurance Posted on November 19, 2020November 19, 2020 by rginsurance Business is fraught with risk. In our experience, running a business without insurance is just a step too far. Why? Business insurance protects you from unexpected liabilities and costs. Accidents, natural disasters, and lawsuits could put you out of business if you are not adequately covered. Every business is different, so it needs a tailored level of coverage. For example, a restaurant is going to require very different insurance compared to a solopreneur working out of their home. The risks are different, but neither business is completely free from risk either. (Side note: Many people think that a business run out of their home is covered by their home insurance policy, but this is simply not the case.) Insurance is needed to cover day-to-day expenses, workers compensation, business assets, vehicle protection, coverage to protect against revenue loss, and much more. Running a business is stressful enough. Protect yourself from accidents and sleep more soundly at night knowing that you’re protected.
