Small Business Insurance Requirements

 Here is an excerpt from a new blog post at

Basic small business insurance consists of four focal types of insurance.  These four types of insurance are professional liability insurance, product liability insurance, general liability insurance, and commercial property insurance.  In this article, Long Island Insurance Executive Gregg S. Marcus seeks to explain what these four types of small business insurance policies are all about. 

Professional liability insurance, which is also known as malpractice insurance, is used to provide coverage to small businesses for any potential financial losses due to errors done by the company itself or the company’s employers.  Some degree of professional liability insurance is legally required for those working in the medical field, including doctors, dentists, and osteopaths.  Other small businesses that are encouraged to purchase professional liability insurance are hair salons, massage therapy centers, and gyms that possess personal trainers.  This is because these small businesses provide services to people on a personal, routine basis.  This puts them at higher risk than other businesses to be held liable for potential injury occurring on their property.
