In a business, whether it is a nail salon or multinational giant, risk reduction is paramount. Public and general liability insurance policies have evolved to reduce the jeopardy of legal action against covered businesses.
Customized general liability insurance policies typically include protection against lawsuits stemming from a wide range of injuries to employees and customers. These policies’ substantial premiums put them beyond the reach of small companies.
What PLI Covers for a Small Business
Lower-cost public liability insurance only protects against legal action prompted by injuries to customers and others who visit a business’s premises. While this coverage is much narrower than a GLI policy, PLI is still essential for a small enterprise. The benefits go beyond staving off catastrophic legal woes.
How PLI Fuels the Psychology of Success
Passionate about starting a new venture, many fledgling entrepreneurs rush through the setup of a PLI policy. Savvier owners understand the value of patiently crafting coverage that maximizes risk reduction within their company’s budget. Lower risk leads to less mental clutter and more freedom to focus on growing a business.
Risk is always a moving target in commerce. Large companies have strategic planners solely devoted to this challenge. For a small business, an agent with a deep understanding of a client’s budget and risk profile is a valuable ally in choosing the appropriate liability coverage.
