Commercial Property insurance, sometimes called Business Property Insurance, covers the physical assets of your business and protects you from minor and/or major losses due to property damage that occurs as a result of things like a fire, theft, storms and other natural disasters. This type of insurance can be good for many types of businesses, such as service-oriented business, manufacturers, retailers, etc. The policy covers the physical property as well as any equipment, including the contents of the building such as merchandise and furniture and will also cover cost income and incurred expenses relating to business interruption due to covered damages. Other items covered include buildings, structures, equipment, machinery, inventory, commercial autos, computers, media equipment and peripheral devices; costs incurred to research, replace or repair lost or damaged data and software (includes portable or mobile, equipment and media).
One of the most basic types of business insurance is General Liability Insurance or Business liability Many businesses are required to carry this type of insurance as a pre-requisite to doing business with other companies or for renting a space for your business. Coverage includes claims such as physical losses like trip and falls on your premises. This coverage can include fire damage cause by you at your business location, medical costs, compensatory damages, attorney fees, judgments, court fees and more. Premiums vary based on your specific type of business.
Product Liability Insurance is for retailers and/or resellers, manufacturers, wholesalers, suppliers, importers and distributers. It protects your business from financial loss and/or claims due to bodily injury and property damage resulting from any physical product the insured supplies, manufactures, imports, distributes, and even resells to the public. Premiums for these policies are based upon the type of product, volume of sales, and the role of the insured in the process. If your business is involved in any part of the chain of commerce, then it is critical to secure product liability coverage. The policy will protect you from medical costs, compensatory damages, economic damages, attorney fees, costs and other punitive damages.
Rental Property insurance is also known as Dwelling insurance and is designed for someone who owns property, but does not occupy the property or does not occupy the property full-time, therefore would need less comprehensive coverage than say a regular homeowner’s insurance policy. A standard policy covers the main structure against damages from lightning, fire, wind damage, hail or sleet, sinkholes, riot, smoke damage, and explosion. Additional coverages that can be added include burglary or theft, vandalism, earthquakes (in some states), and a few others. The policy pays for material and labor only, to repair or rebuild damage.
Professional Liability Insurance is perfect for service oriented type businesses like attorneys, physicians, accountants, financial consultants, etc. It is an insurance policy that will protect the insured from financial damages in the event they are sued for a perceived or real “negligence” that injures their clients. Premium amounts will depend on the amount of coverage you intend to purchase and vary based on industry, revenue size, length of time in business, geographical location and other factors. The policy will protect you from court and judgment costs, attorney fees and other defense expenses, as well as final settlements.
Professional indemnity insurance or commonly know as errors & omissions is a form of liability insurance that helps protect professional advice- and service-providing individuals and companies from bearing the full cost of defending against a negligence claim made by a client, and damages awarded in such a civil lawsuit. The coverage focuses on alleged failure to perform on the part of, financial loss caused by, and error or omission in the service or product sold by the policyholder. These are causes for legal action that would not be covered by a more general liability insurance policy which addresses more direct forms of harm. Professional liability coverage sometimes also provides for the defense costs, including when legal action turns out to be groundless.

Even though a vast majority of companies conduct their business on line and store their valuable data on computer networks and/or in the cloud (internet storage), the standard business owner policy does not consider electronic data to be tangible assets and therefore do not cover them.
Toubin Insurance Agency can help you secure cyber risk and liability insurance tailored around your company’s specific needs.

Many states require businesses or individuals who offer services to citizens to secure a surety bond. This keeps them from taking advantage of unsuspecting customers. Toubin Insurance Agency offers a variety of different types of Surety Bonds and can provide expert guidance in assessing your risk and securing the right type of bond for your business.
In general a Surety Bond protects against malpractice and fraud. Most surety bonds are considered a three-party contract between the principal (business owner or other professional), the obligee (consumer or government entity) and the issuer (the surety). The bond is a financial guarantee that the principal will always act in accordance with laws, with integrity, honesty and financial responsibility, and act in compliance with the mutual terms of a contract. The bond will cover any damages or losses when the contract is not completed according to terms.

Often, businesses in the financial, insurance, mortgage, banking and real estate industries require some sort of Fidelity bond as a pre-requisite to doing business or obtaining credentials. The bond protects you and your customers specifically against employee theft, negligence, dishonesty or any other fraudulent or illegal acts on the part of your employees. It will pay for any damages or losses that your business is found liable for including legal fees, judgments and settlements. Premiums are based on the size of your company, nature of your business (type of clients you serve) and amount of coverage you are seeking.
Many states require Notaries to purchase a surety bond to protect their signers. Basically, a notary bond is a financial guarantee that a person who loses money because of a Notary’s misconduct or fraud will be reimbursed up to the bond’s limit. It’s important to note that a surety bond for a notary does not protect the Notary, it only protects the victim of the fraud and misconduct.
Court proceedings often require certain parties to file Surety Bonds. These types of Surety Bonds are broke down into Judicial Bonds and Fiduciary/Probate Bonds.
Judicial Bonds include:
An Appeals Bonds is secured to guarantee the court that the original judgment will be paid if the appeal is denied.
A Bail Bond is used in criminal cases and is secured to guarantee a person will appear in court, thus making it unnecessary to keep the person incarcerated pending the outcome of the case.
An Attachment Bond is secured in cases where a lien is placed on a defendant’s assets. It will protect from damages incurred when the Plaintiff has been found by the court to have wrongfully placed the lien.

Executor Bond – this bond ensures that estates are managed according to the wills of the deceased.
Fudiciary Bond – a Fiduciary is a person who is placed in trust, either by a company or appointed by the court in a legal proceeding and trusted to manage and act in the best interest of another person or entity, such as a guardian, estate, trust or a real estate transaction. A Fiduciary Bondprotects the person or entity against fraud and embezzlement committed by the Fiduciary.

These bonds can also be structured to provide indemnity guarantees to third parties who sustain injury or damage as a result of the obligor’s activities as described in the license or permit when such a guarantee is required.

Umbrella & Excess
Commercial Umbrella and Excess Liability insurance adds another layer of protection and acts as a gap between your existing coverage and any expenses, settlements, judgments or legal fees (claims) that go beyond the limits of those policies. Simply put, this extra coverage helps in the face of catastrophic settlement amounts that could cause severe losses to your income or future income. A simple example would be a settlement calling for $1.5 million but your General Liability only covers you for $1 million. Your Umbrella policy would provide you the additional $500,000 to successfully settle the claim, without touching your assets.
Many businesses, especially small businesses and start-ups, find an Umbrella policy to be more cost effective than raising the limits on their existing policies. Premiums are based on several risk factors as well as the underlying policies.
