Insurance is the practice of protecting finances and investments, and has existed for thousands of years. It has changed dramatically since its inception, but the concept has remained the same. Insurance helps individuals and businesses to avoid financial ruin due to unforeseen events and circumstances.
Business insurance policies insure that business owners, employees and assets are protected from lawsuits, accidents, theft, business, or inventory damage and more. Businesses usually obtain multiple kinds of protection to secure the safety of the business.
Regrettably, there is no guarantee that insurance companies will always pay out a claim. Under some circumstances, insurers have the right to deny a claim.
