Common Questions About Commercial Casualty Insurance

Commercial casualty insurance is the part of commercial property and casualty insurance (P&C) that protects against legal liability or negligence.

Without business insurance, you’d have to pay out of pocket for costly claims and lawsuits that could come up when you least expect it.
Commercial property insurance primarily covers property damage that happens to your owned or rented business property caused by fire, lightning, wind, theft or burglary. Most commercial property insurance policies will cover your owned or rented buildings, plus your equipment, tools, furniture and inventory at your location. In comparison, commercial casualty insurance refers to the insurance policies that protect your business against liability claims of customer bodily injury or damage to other’s property that your business’ product or services may have caused.
Commercial casualty insurance won’t cover damages or bodily injuries that your business or employee caused intentionally to a third party. Casualty insurance also doesn’t protect your business’ owned property from loss. You’ll need commercial property insurance to make sure your company assets, like buildings, inventory, equipment and tools are protected from fires, theft, lightning or wind damage.
Commercial excess casualty insurance can be added on to your business insurance policy to extend the coverage limits of your policy. This means that you’ll have coverage for more expensive, larger claims. Depending on your industry and the work you do, you may need more extensive coverage.
