Examples of commercial insurance coverages available from Baer Insurance Services:
- Contractor Liability
For contractors, every job has risks. Accidents happen, equipment breaks, projects change and deadlines slip. Lawsuits can bankrupt your business and impact personal finances. That’s why reducing risk is crucial for contractors.

- Commercial Liability

- Commercial Property

- Directors & Officers

- Employment Practices Liability
Provides coverage for defense costs and liability arising from allegations of improper employment practices, sexual harassment, and discrimination.
- Home Based Business
Homeowners insurance does not necessarily cover many home business-related claims. This could mean a major loss of income, as well as other significant losses, for your home business. If you have a home based business consider contacting us to discuss proper coverage options that offer both protection and affordability.
- Inland Marine
Provides coverage for business assets and hardware while these items are off premises.
- Ordinance or Law Coverage
One of the most needed types of coverage is also one of the most commonly overlooked, or even known about, by consumers. It’s called Ordinance or Law Coverage. As your building becomes older certain changes in your county’s building codes and ordinance change to reflect new standards for construction. If your older property suffers a substantial loss, fixing it may require a higher construction standard to reflect new laws, therefore simply replacing your property as it was just isn’t good enough to meet these new laws and codes. Ordinance or law coverage pays for these upgrades in building standards.
- Professional Liability
Provides coverage for defense costs and awards for liability arising from improper professional practices and errors and omissions in the conduct of business activities.
- Cyber Liability
Preventative data protection systems are essential to minimize the potential for a security breach. Even with preventative actions in place, businesses should still be prepared in case of a security breach. Prepare your business with a cyber security policy and have confidence in your plan when issues arise. Cyber liability insurance protects your business against damages to your client and to your company. Expenses for lawsuits, reputation maintenance, data repair, and financial damages add up quickly. Limit your chances of a security breach and limit your damages with proper cyber liability insurance.
- Special Event Coverage
Provides third party liability coverage for a short term special event.
- Umbrella and Excess Liability
This coverage complements your property/liability program and provides additional limits of coverage. In today’s litigious society, smart business people protect their investment with umbrella coverage.
- Workers’ Compensation
This coverage is designed to meet the workers’ compensation laws of your state. Workers’ compensation coverage provides protection for injured workers and supporting protection through employer’s liability coverage.
The companies we represent may even offer you the opportunity to package many of these coverages within a single policy.
