Commercial property insurance is often thought to be coverage on the actual business you own. That's part of what it usually covers, but not everything. Many times, businesses fail to see the true value these policies can offer because they don't know the full extent of the coverage and protection. The fact is, your documents, accounts and even your electronic software may be protected under this type of business insurance. Do you have the right insurance in place to protect against risks?
Why You Can Count on Your Commercial Property Insurance
One day, a fire rips through your office space and damages all of your patient files and documents. Perhaps the fire causes a failure in your electronic record keeping or causes you to lose your accounts receivable files. When this happens, not only do you have to replace the equipment involved, but now you are faced with a loss of information. For many companies, this is a costly, difficult process that may even lead to the shuttering of your office for many months so you can recover.
The good news is that your commercial property insurance can help. It may help you with coverage for the lost equipment and other physical assets. It can also help, in many cases, with the repairs necessary to get your systems back up and working. If a patient's information is lost, it may help in covering the financials related to recovering this information.
Is Your Policy Enough?
If you operate a business that may be susceptible to these types of losses, it pays to take a close look at your business insurance plan. Find out if the plan offers this type of comprehensive coverage for all of your assets, including virtual ones. Then, find out what the coverage limit is. It should be enough to cover the total cost of restoring your company's functionality after such a loss. It may also have business interruption insurance in place to reduce the loss of income during this downtime.
The right commercial property insurance can give you peace of mind. Take a few minutes to get a new business insurance plan you can count on, or update an existing policy to ensure it is complete enough to keep your business operational.
