What You Need to Know About Property & Casualty

We begin every new business relationship by performing a comprehensive risk analysis. We review and assess a broad spectrum of risk from contractual risk transfers to potential changes senior management contemplates for your business, and everything in between. We discuss various structures from first dollar protection, high deductibles, and self-insurance to reinsurance of single parent captives.

We work with you to understand your company’s ability to self fund risk, study your historical losses, discuss market changes, and recommend types of insurance you may find suitable. We build your insurance program using several coverage endorsements to interconnect multiple policies to provide protection at a low total cost of risk.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Who Needs Workers Compensation Insurance? 

    Every business does. Many business owners feel that if their employees are independent contractors because they get 1099's instead of W-2's. This does NOT matter.

    What matters is whether they do this type of work for anyone else (like a contractor who has their own insurance, vehicle, and tools), and the issue of control where the employer tells them how and when to do their job. 

  • Do I need warehouse insurance? 

    Whether you need warehouse insurance ultimately depends on your business's ability to recover from financial loss. You can do a fast self-diagnostic by asking yourself the following questions: 

    • Can you afford to replace your clients’ lost property? 
    • If a client or prospect is touring your facility and is injured, can you afford their medical bills? 
    • Do you know the exact value of the items you’re storing? 

    If your answer to any of the above is no, then you may consider purchasing insurance for your warehouse. 

  • What insurance does my warehouse need? 

    There are many coverages you can purchase, but there are a few types that can be beneficial for all warehouses.

    • Commercial Property
    • Workers Compensation
    • General Liability
    • Commercial Auto
    • Inland Marine

    The exact insurance you purchase depends on your needs. Not every water well drilling business is the same, meaning no two water well drilling business insurance policies will be the same. However, there are general coverages any well-drilling company should consider.
  • Is the drilling equipment on my truck covered under my auto policy?
    Unfortunately, many tools and equipment located on your truck are not covered under your commercial auto policy. As a good rule of thumb, your commercial auto insurance won't cover anything that's not bolted down to the vehicle but it still needs to be listed properly. To adequately protect your tools while they're in your car, you'll want inland marine coverage. As mentioned above, inland marine insurance covers business property that can be moved or transported.

No matter the size of your organization, there are steps you can take to improve the safety of your employees and take control of costs.  According to the National Safety Council, the average cost of workers compensation claims is $40,051. In addition to the medical costs, wage replacement, and indirect costs associated with a claim, there is also the negative impact that a claim can have on a company's experience modification (or e-mod) which can significantly increase workers compensation insurance rates for the next three years.
