If They Don’t Ask, You Might Not Be Covered

What types of commercial business insurance should every company have, no matter the size?

Jim Klingensmith, president of L. Calvin Jones & Co.: First and foremost is general liability insurance. That takes care of anything that happens from bodily injury to property damage caused from what a business does. Then it can get more intricate from there based on the size of the business.

As the business grows, it has the property, the buildings, the real property and the property of others. If it has property that is going to leave the premises, then we go into additional professional liabilities and errors and omissions.
