When it comes to common types of claims submitted by commercial businesses, theft cases top the list. This can lead to millions and millions of dollars in lost materials both for small business, such as convenience stores and coffee shops, to large establishments like offices and retail stores.
Next on the list are weather claims. It is common for businesses to experience a variety of weather-related issues including hail or wind damage, as well as tornadoes. In the colder months, businesses that do not properly cover pipes can have to deal with frozen pipes.
Fire is also destructive. It can occur due to a variety of reasons and be as simple as fixes needed to be fixed in a contained area, or total loss. Companies should also be protected in the event of customer injuries or damage.
