Protect Your Business From Libel and Slander

If you are a business owner, you are at risk for a defamation lawsuit. The term defamation refers to either a written or spoken false statement issued by an individual about another that leads to some form of distress. In this case, the distress is to a company as opposed to a person. Occasionally, a standard business owner policy will cover defamation charges. However, it is incredibly important to double check. Here are a few things to keep in mind when looking to purchase liability coverage that will suit your needs:

  • How much do you need? Total the amount of your annual sales, and purchase a policy that covers at least that much.
  • How many risks do you face? Some businesses like construction present more risks than others. Consider this when buying your policy.
  • Make sure you know how many limits come with your policy. There is always the chance that you risk more than one lawsuit each year.
  • Coverage is not as expensive as you may think. If you need extra coverage, it may actually save you money in what you pay per year.
