Commercial General Liability
Critical Assurance for the Protection of Your Business.
Running a business is a major responsibility that can involve many risks. Not only are you responsible for ensuring that your day-to-day operations run smoothly, but you are also accountable for keeping your employees and property insured from injuries and damages. At Insurance NW, we can help you create a policy that is designed to safeguard the best interests of your business – so you can focus on serving your customers and increasing your profits.
Commercial General Liability from Insurance NW can prevent major financial losses if your business is sued or held legally responsible in the event of bodily injury or damage. With the proper policy, you can have most medical expenses, attorney fees, settlements, and reimbursements covered. Coverages from Insurance NW include:
- Premises Liability
- Products and Completed Operations
- Premises Medical
- Fire Legal Liability
- Casualty Coverage
Other types of Commercial General Liability include Garage keepers Liability and Employment Practices Liability. If you run an auto service operation, having Garage keepers Liability coverage will protect your customers’ vehicles from fire, vandalism, theft, or other damages. An option like Employment Practices Liability will protect your business if an employee’s legal rights have been violated.
Additional Commercial Liability
Other specialty types of Commercial Liability, such as Foreign, Liquor, and Concession Liability, can aid in furthering the safety of your business’s future.
Foreign Liability protects employees who travel out of the country (for business purposes) in the event of injuries, damages, and lawsuits.
Liquor Liability includes covering damages and injuries in which your business is held legally responsible because of serving liquor – from liquor establishments to office parties/special events.
Concession Liability keeps your special event stand insured from damage, accidents, or accidental injuries sustained to pedestrians.
Since there are many types of liability coverages, it’s important to talk with a specialist at Insurance NW about the best options for your business.
Commercial Property Insurance
Protection for Your Business Itself.
Every day, you work hard to ensure that your business stays up and running. From serving your customers and offering your products and services to providing your employees with jobs, your business is a powerhouse of activity. That’s why it’s important to make sure your commercial property is protected because accidents do happen, and the last thing you want to experience as a business owner is being out of commission and under the wrong policy.
With a custom Property Insurance policy from Insurance NW, you can ensure that the building itself and the personal property of your business is protected from minor accidents or a major financial loss. Our insurance specialists can help you create a policy that keeps your small-to medium-size business insured from top to bottom by covering such items as:
- Your building
- All interior items (desks, furniture, etc.)
- Any outdoor signs on your property
- On-site equipment
- Your inventory
Other items that are typically found on a Property Insurance policy can include Builder’s Risk insurance and Equipment Breakdown coverage. Builder’s Risk protects any materials or equipment from damage or loss sustained during construction or remodeling, while Equipment Breakdown, or Boiler and Machinery, keeps any electrical, electronic, or pressurized equipment on your premises insured from breakdowns or loss.

- If one of your products causes injury or illness
- If a fire in your building damages other property

Commercial Real Estate Insurance
Commercial real estate insurance protects you from losses caused by damage to property assets. Most businesses are vulnerable to the same threats as every other building—fire, flooding, vandalism, or even being struck by a vehicle that goes out of control. Many of these problems are something that cannot be reasonably prevented, making them eligible for coverage that can help repair the building or allow your company to move to a new location.
Commercial Real Estate Insurance Features
As the owner of a business, you know how difficult it is to run a smooth operation. The last thing you need is a disaster that damages your workplace so badly that you can no longer continue operating. Commercial real estate insurance makes the crisis something you can handle. Before you start shopping, though, here are a few things to keep in mind:
The first thing you should do is take stock of the company’s physical assets. This includes your building, any paper records, inventory, office equipment, signs located outside, and anything else that qualifies as a physical asset.
You may not need to insure everything the business owns. If you decide something is not worth insuring, removing it from your policy could lower your monthly premiums and make it easier to insure what truly matters.
Most policies cover either the replacement cost (RC) or the actual cash value (ACV) of the insured items. Policies that include replacement cost are more expensive but allow for full replacement without calculating any depreciation. Actual cash value policies consider the loss of value over time and factor this difference in to any claims on the policy.
If you are not sure which policy options make the most sense for your company, ask one of our agents for more information and they’ll help you make a decision.
