General Liability Insurance
A form of insurance bought by businesses to indemnify the business for third-party liability claims. Coverage can include premises and operations liability for onsite and job-site accidents and product liability claims for products that cause a loss to a third party.
Property Liability Insurance
Property insurance provides protection against most risks to property, such as fire, theft, and some weather damage. This includes specialized forms of insurance such as fire insurance, flood insurance, earthquake insurance, home insurance, or boiler insurance. Property is insured in two main ways—open perils and named perils.
Executive Liability Insurance
A form of liability insurance payable to the directors and officers of a company, or to the organization(s) itself, as reimbursement for losses or advancement of defense costs in the event an insured suffers such a loss as a result of a legal action brought for alleged wrongful acts in their capacity as directors and officers. Intentional illegal acts, however, are typically not covered under these policies.
Professional Liability Insurance
A type of liability coverage designed to protect professionals (e.g., accountants, attorneys, real estate brokers, consultants) against liability incurred as a result of errors and omissions in performing their professional services. Although there are a few exceptions (e.g., physicians, architects, and engineers), most professional liability policies only cover economic or financial losses suffered by third parties.
Employment Practces Liability Insurance
Provides coverage to employers against claims made by employees or a 3rd party alleging discrimination (based on sex, race, age, or disability, for example), wrongful termination, harassment, and other employment-related issues, such as failure to promote or wage and hour.
Coverage for motor vehicles owned by a business engaged in commerce. Commercial auto provides coverage that protects the insured against financial loss because of legal liability for motor vehicle-related injuries, or damage to the property of others caused by accidents arising out of the ownership, maintenance, use, or care-custody and control of a motor vehicle.

Property insurance for property in transit over land. A standard property policy won’t cover equipment or goods once it leaves the scheduled property. Inland marine is designed to cover equipment or property that will move from job site to job site.
Cyber and Privacy
These policies are intended to cover a variety of both liability and property losses that may result when a business engages in various electronic activities and cover a business’ liability for a data breach in which the firm’s customers’ personal information, such as Social Security or credit card numbers, is exposed or stolen by a hacker or other criminal who has gained access to the firm’s electronic network. The policies cover a variety of expenses associated with data breaches, including notification costs, credit monitoring, costs to defend claims by state regulators, fines and penalties, and loss resulting from identity theft.
A policy that is in excess of specified other policies and also potentially primary insurance for losses not covered by the other policies. An umbrella policy may cover certain risks from the first dollar of loss or liability incurred, which were never covered under the primary policies. Excess pays after an underlying primary policy is exhausted, but the critical difference is excess policies are normally “follow form” policies that conform exactly to the coverage of the underlying policy, except that they add on their own excess limit which is then stacked on top of the primary policy’s limit.
Workers’ Compensation Insurance
Workers’ Compensation Insurance provides coverage for medical/recovery costs and partial lost wages if your employee is injured in a work-related accident or illness. Coverage may also include death benefits.
It is the most confounding and confusing coverage for business owners. These claims can lead to business owners not understanding how to manage a claim in such a way that it benefits both the Injured Employee and the Employer. The TIA Group Claims Team assists our clients in the management of Workers Compensation claims with the focus of getting the employee back to work while minimizing premium impacts.
A surety bond or surety is a promise by a surety or guarantor to pay one party (the obligee) a certain amount if a second party (the principal) fails to meet some obligation, such as fulfilling the terms of a contract. The surety bond protects the obligee against losses resulting from the principal’s failure to meet the obligation.
Performance and Payment Surety Bonds can be considered one of the most important components of a construction contractor’s insurance program.
