What Does General Liability Insurance Cover?

Commercial general liability (CGL) insurance is critical for diaper supply services. It protects you from costs related to bodily injury or property damage that you or your employees cause to third parties. CGL policies also cover your defense costs, court costs, and court-ordered judgments that you must pay.

A CGL policy responds to simple trip-and-fall incidents on your premises (e.g., a customer trips on an upturned rug and breaks her ankle). And it covers you if you’re responsible for damaging someone’s property. CGL policies also cover claims of slander, libel, and advertising liability.

What Does Commercial Property Insurance Cover?

Commercial property insurance protects you if a fire, vandalism, smoke, theft, or other type of event damages your property. It provides coverage for lost inventory, equipment and machinery, office equipment, computers, and more.

Commercial property insurance policies usually include business interruption coverage, which protects your earnings if your business is unable to operate because of damage caused by some type of covered property damage (fire, hail, wind, equipment breakdown). It pays for rent, employee salaries, lost income, relocation fees, and more.

You can expand your business interruption coverage to include coverage for breakdowns in utility services (water, electrical) that force you to temporarily close your doors.

Why Is Equipment Breakdown Coverage Important for Diaper Supply Services?

Equipment breakdown coverage, or boiler and machinery coverage, is essential for your diaper supply service. Without functioning laundry equipment, you cannot deliver clean diapers to your customers.

This coverage helps you with the costs of repairing or replacing damaged equipment, and may also pay for lost income that is directly attributable to the breakdown of covered equipment.

Why Do You Need Commercial Vehicle Insurance?

Because you own commercial vehicles to make deliveries to your customers, you need commercial auto insurance.

And if you or your employees drive personal vehicles for business purposes, you must have non-owned or hired auto liability coverage to protect your company if an employee is in an accident while out making deliveries.

In addition to the coverage types described above, diaper supply services will want to consider some of the following types of business insurance. Whether you need them depends upon your unique risks.

  • Workers’ compensation insurance: Provides insurance coverage when accidents happen in the workplace. It ensures that the injured worker gets medical care and income protection while unable to work.
  • Commercial umbrella insurance: Provides supplemental liability protection beyond the limits of certain other liability policies. This policy can be invaluable for a once-in-a-lifetime judgment rendered against you.
  • Employment practices liability insurance: Covers you if an employee sues you for discriminatory employment practices.
  • Cyber liability coverage: Protects you from the risks associated with cyberattacks, data breaches, viruses, and other cyber-related issues that impact your online store or other computer systems.
  • Employee theft and crime coverage: Protects your business from the costs of theft, dishonesty, and fraudulent acts committed by an individual employee or a group of employees. It provides coverage for forgery, alteration, theft, unauthorized electronic fund transfers, credit card fraud, computer fraud, money order fraud, and counterfeit fraud.

These policies can be tailored to your unique needs.
