Business Insurance Claims Examples
When you're ready to file a claim, you might be unsure whether or not what you’re reporting is covered by your business insurance. If that’s the case, you should connect with your agent to understand what your policy covers and get their assistance with filing your claim. Here are a few examples of what is covered by your business insurance.
- A customer's work truck was broken into and their tools stolen. With the proper business insurance, the customer's tools were covered.
- Our customer was on their way to a job site and ended up rear-ending another vehicle. The customer's business auto liability coverage was able to repair the damage to the other vehicle so the customer didn't have to pay out of their own pocket.
