Businesses operate on risks. For example, business property may be stolen or damaged, the business may incur terrible losses, or employees or consumers may sue the business.

Fortunately, business owners can  easily protect their business from such risks by applying for Dallas Business insurance coverage. Although there are many types of insurance policies for businesses, owners only need to get a few policies that best meet their needs. It would obviously be expensive if a business had all types of available insurance coverages. Thus, business owners should only apply for the most relevant policies that address the biggest risks.

How can business owners effectively analyze their risks and choose the best policies?  The most effective means risk analysis is to simply study similar businesses and the problems they face.  In addition, business owners could estimate risk based on how many employees, how many customers and what types of property are involved in the business. They can ask themselves what risks they think employees or customers present and how much property is worth.

Analyzing risk and the potential impact of each type of loss on the business helps business owners figure out what type of insurance to get.  Here are the main business risks and the insurance policies a business owner can use to protect the business against them.

Employee Risks

If an employee is injured on the job, he or she might file a lawsuit.  Worker’s compensation insurance should protect a business from this risk. This type of insurance compensates employees for medical care and lost wages related to on-the-job injuries. Employees accept these benefits in exchange for waiving their right to sue the business for compensation for their injuries.

General liability insurance is  similar to worker’s compensation except that the insurance company does not directly compensate the employee. Instead, it pays the employer’s legal fees and covers any monetary settlement that a court rules the employer has to pay the employee.

Property Risks

Property insurance entitles a business to reimbursements for lost or damaged property in case of any theft, fire or other covered event. Premiums are based on how much property is covered and how much covered property is worth. If the company uses vehicles in its operations, owners could protect them using commercial auto insurance.

Consumer Risks

Consumers could also sue a business for its products and/or services. General liability insurance covers legal fees and liabilities in these types of cases as well.. Owners of service-oriented businesses can protect themselves from  negligence or unprofessionalism lawsuits filed by  clients by applying for professional liability insurance. This coverage protects employers from loss in the event that a client files a malpractice or negligence lawsuit.

Operational Risks

Businesses risk loss simply by operating. For example, a business could face unavoidable setbacks like major equipment breakdown, which could cripple its entire operations. Business interruption insurance policy compensates a business for its losses due to this type of crisis. If the business handles a lot of sensitive information, it should be protected from loss of confidentiality via data breaches. Data breach insurance covers businesses in the event that they suffer losses due to data breaches.
