Customized General Liability Insurance Policies

Your business is so much more than your source of income. It’s your passion and legacy — and it’s critical to have an insurance policy to ensure those things aren’t threatened should an accident occur on your premises. With a general liability insurance policy, you can be confident that you have protection in place to cover claims involving bodily injury or property damage that arise during ordinary business operations.

Every business is unique and general liability insurance policies should not be boilerplate. Depending on the type of business you have and the industry to which you belong, your insurance requirements can vary considerably. This is why it’s important to have a specifically tailored policy that meets your company’s needs.

At Caribbean Risk Group, we customize general liability insurance policies for a variety of businesses and entrepreneurs, including the following:

  • Small businesses
  • Landscaping companies
  • Retail businesses
  • Restaurants and food establishments
  • Marketing and advertising businesses
  • Information and technology companies
  • Real estate companies
  • Manufacturing companies
  • Janitorial services
  • And many more

In addition to physical injury and property damage claims, general liability insurance can also safeguard your business from a number of other liability claims, including copyright infringement, reputational harm, and advertising injury claims. However, it does not apply to employee injuries, auto accidents during work hours, professional mistakes, or theft. These matters must be covered by other types of insurance.

The team at Caribbean Risk Group will take the time to assess the needs of your business. We will explain the various options available so you can rest assured that your company and its assets are shielded, should the unexpected happen.

Strategically Protecting Your Business with Commercial Property Insurance

The extreme weather that often occurs in the Caribbean can make doing business challenging. But while hurricanes, tropical storms, floods, and other conditions are often unpredictable, your ability to keep your business running doesn’t have to be. With commercial property insurance, you can protect the physical property you own or rent and the equipment you rely on to continue daily business operations to avoid disruption.

Far too many business owners learn the hard way that a temporary closure caused by unanticipated events can lead to a permanent one. Commercial property insurance allows you to recover quickly from events ranging from minor obstacles to major losses. Specifically, it can shield your property, income, inventory, and furniture from covered events such as natural disaster, fire, theft, acts of vandalism, and other events listed in your policy. Not only can you protect your assets with this type of policy, but you can also gain a competitive edge in your industry.

A comprehensive commercial property insurance policy is one of the smartest investments you can make for your business. Caribbean Risk Group has extensive experience in customizing commercial property insurance policies for businesses of all types and sizes. With a focused commitment to helping your business succeed, we are adept at identifying risks and finding cost-effective solutions.

Shielding Your Assets with Builder’s Risk Insurance

There’s a lot of risk when it comes to building or renovating a property. Although commercial property insurance will protect a finished building and its contents, a builder’s risk insurance policy covers structures while they are under construction. Whether you’re a general contractor, property owner, or another party with an interest in a construction project, it’s crucial to ensure your business and assets are shielded from damage or destruction during the building process.

Construction development and design can vary significantly — and these types of policies must be tailored to address the specific risks associated with each project. Based on your coverage and any extensions, builder’s risk insurance can pay for the costs of property replacement, debris removal, pollutant cleanup, lost sales, and loss of materials that arise during the construction process.

Builder’s risk insurance is complex, highly nuanced, and frequently misunderstood. It’s imperative to make sure you know what your policy covers and that you have enough coverage to shield your investment from potential loss. At Caribbean Risk Group, we will work closely with you to minimize your exposure to loss if things don’t go as planned during construction.

Comprehensive Errors and Omissions Insurance Policies

Not every loss in business stems from physical damage or destruction. Sometimes, mistakes can be made while professional services are rendered that result in financial loss and put your business at risk of closing. An errors and omissions (E&O) insurance policy can help to protect your business from claims in connection with inaccurate advice, misrepresentation, omissions, errors, or negligence. Notably, E&O insurance needs can vary widely across industries and policies must be written to reflect the common types of exposure each individual business owner might face.

Any business owner or entrepreneur who offers advice or services for a fee to clients should have a strong E&O policy. This type of insurance can be essential for hairdressers, web developers, title agencies, publishing companies, pet groomers, marketing firms, educators, consulting companies, and advertising firms. Professionals such as doctors, dentists, lawyers, and accountants must also take out another type of E&O insurance called malpractice insurance.

One mistake in judgment shouldn’t affect the future of your business. Caribbean Risk Group can assist you with obtaining the E&O insurance you need so you can confidently provide the expertise and advice you’re qualified to offer while having the peace of mind knowing that you’re protected.
