What Web Developer Insurance Do I Need?

Many technology and software development businesses start with a Póliza para propietarios de empresas (BOP). This includes three essential coverages to help protect your business from claims of bodily injury or property damage. With a BOP, you’ll get:
General liability insurance to help cover claims that your business caused bodily injury or damaged someone else’s property. So, if you’re working at a client’s office and accidentally damage their property, this coverage can help pay the costs.
Commercial property insurance helps protect your building and equipment that you own or rent to run your business. This includes:
  • Computers
  • Software
  • Hard drives
  • Server stacks
  • Wires
Business income insurance to help replace your business’ lost income if you can’t operate because of covered property damage.
Cyber liability insurance to help pay for costs associated with preparing for, responding to and recovering from cyberattacks.
Fidelity bond coverage to help protect your business from errors, omissions and “breach of fiduciary duty” claims in managing and administering employee benefit plans.
We know not every company is the same, that’s why we offer customizable coverage for our small business owners. Get the kind of insurance coverages you need and add them to your BOP. We can help you create the policy that will fit your small business perfectly.
