Insurance protects you from losses that may pose a significant threat to your business operations. A major loss to one organization may be a trivial loss to another. When selecting coverage, deductibles and policy limits, there are many factors to consider
The more your insurance representative knows about your organization, the better prepared he or she is to advise you about changes in the marketplace, as well as the type and amount of insurance you need. By implementing risk management strategies you may be able to eliminate or mitigate key risks and save money on your premiums.
Be sure to periodically review your policies with your insurance representative. Over time, your organization may grow and your need for certain coverage may increase. Or, as your business evolves, you could find yourself paying for coverage that you no longer require.

Failure to promptly notify your insurance broker or insurance company of known events that may lead to a liability claim can result in denied coverage for claims eventually made in conjunction with the occurrence.
Many companies make the mistake of not considering in advance the insurance implications of a new acquisition, merger, product or service. After the fact, companies often learn that they cannot obtain liability coverage or learn that it will be very expensive to cover. Consider approaching your insurance broker to find out the repercussions of your potential change in operations.
It has become common practice for one party to require the other party to include it as an “additional insured” on their policy. Failure to add an “additional insured” to a policy can lead to uninsured losses. It is important to have a procedure in place to review all contracts that may have insurance requirements placed upon you.
