Risk associated with construction, general contracting and specialty contracts of any kind can be overwhelming and expensive, especially if you are a small to medium size business.

There is nothing worse than a workplace injury, but when you are covered by workers compensation insurance you know both you and your employee will be safe.

How We Help

Property & Business Income Insurance

Protect for your company’s assets & balance sheet. Business income insurance can help cover the loss of revenues that you sustain due to a covered property loss, and can even help provide coverage for extra expenses that you incur in order to get your organization back up and running.

Directors & Officers (D&O) Insurance

Allow your Directors & Officers to make decisions with confidence. D&O insurance coverage helps to protect your company’s bottom line and your directors’ & officers’ assets, individually, from claims that may allege mismanagement of the organization resulting in financial consequences.

Employment Practices Liability Insurance

With the type of legal employee protections in place, Employment Practices Liability Insurance (EPLI), is essential for any organization. EPLI responds to protect an organization from claims alleging wrongful termination, sexual or workplace harassment, discrimination, failure to employ or promote, etc.

Workers Compensation Insurance

Ensure that your employees have medical care and income continuation benefits in the event of an injury while on the job. An employer’s liability portion of a workers compensation policy can also protect your business from lawsuits for aspects of work-related injuries that may fall outside the scope of the workers compensation statutes.

Commercial Auto Insurance

If you or your staff members use a vehicle for commercial purposes, a standard personal auto policy typically will not extend to cover business-related use of that vehicle. Get protected with a commercial automobile policy.

General Liability Insurance

Building a company takes hard work. Protecting your business and assets from loss is undoubtedly one of your highest priorities, particularly with regard to liability risks, which can be some of the most expensive business claims.

Excess “Umbrella” Liability Insurance

What would happen to your business if something unthinkable happened and the loss exceeded your existing policy? Excess liability insurance is extra protection against catastrophic events that could potentially have a serious impact on your business financials.

Fiduciary Liability 
Insurance

If you have people managing your 401k, defined contribution plan, or other Employee Benefit Plans, Fiduciary Liability is a must. Managers who oversee your Employee Benefit Plans have fiduciary duties to the plan participants, and can be held personally liable for errors in the administration of these plans.

Cyber Liability Insurance

Cyber liability is a fast emerging area, but the coverage and policy forms are completely non-standardized. Unless your broker understands your unique exposures as compared with the policy coverages, you could be buying a lot of empty promises – and not receiving the coverage you need in the event of a claim.

Errors & Omissions

Protect your business from claims of negligence, misrepresentation, violation of good faith and fair dealing, inaccurate advice, libel and slander. From defense attorney fees to administrative and court costs and settlements, E&O insurance can help cover you.

Contractor & Construction General Liability Insurance

Whether you are a general contractor, plumber, electrician, or any other type of construction industry contractor, it is your responsibility to manage the financial safety of your business and the physical well-being of your employees. Get the best coverage at the best price to protect your company.
