There are many insurance myths floating around, and most of them have been around for years. We want to respond to these myths with clear information, so that you can make educated decisions about your insurance purchases.
Commercial Insurance Myths
Having two agents is better because they keep each other competitive
Having two agents duplicates effort and can create coverage gaps and/or duplications. For example, there is certain coverage that can be included under a liability policy as well as under an auto policy. If you have two agents, who coordinates coverage? One agent is better able to manage your entire insurance program.
I am covered under workers’ compensation; therefore I do not need medical insurance
Workers’ compensation only covers on the job injuries. It does not cover off duty accidents, illness or other things like cancer.
Umbrella insurance is for only large firms
Every business should consider an umbrella policy. Claims can come from employees, clients and other third parties. Defense costs range from $250 to $750 per hour on more complicated claims.
My claim was an act of God; therefore my deductible does not apply
All losses are subject to your policy terms including the stated deductible.
