Commercial Property and Casualty

Don’t leave any part of your business to chance. Whether you own a building structure, equipment, inventory or furniture, you have commercial property that is subject to a loss at any time. A catastrophic loss could close your business down temporarily or indefinitely and the loss of income could be devastating to you and your family.  Property insurance could include coverage for structures, furniture, equipment, landscaping, signs, inventory, loss of income and more. JayMar Insurance Agency will customize a commercial property policy to your specifications so that all of your property is properly insured in case of a loss. Loss of income coverage can be purchased as a part of a property policy and will assist you to cover the expenses while your business is closed as a result of the covered loss.

General Liability

For every business owner, the chances of getting sued have increased dramatically during the last decade. General liability insurance can prevent a legal suit from turning into a financial disaster by providing financial protection in case your business is sued or held legally responsible for some injury or damage. General Liability Insurance provides coverage for losses arising from bodily injury, property damage or personal injury on your business premises or arising from your operations.  If your company makes a product or provides a service, Completed Operations coverage provides liability protection if an injury resulted from something your company made or service your company provided.  Contractual liability coverage extends to any liability you may assume by entering into a variety of contracts.

Commercial Automobile

Whether you need to buy a business auto insurance policy will depend on the kind of driving you do. We will ask you many details about how you use your vehicles in your business, who will be driving them and whether any employees you have will be driving their own vehicles for your business.  JayMar Insurance Agency will help you obtain the needed commercial automobile insurance protection for you and your business.

Workers’ Compensation

As a rule, a company with one or more employees is required by law to provide them with Workers’ Compensation coverage to cover medical expenses, permanent disability and a portion of the injured employee’s wages. Workers’ Compensation coverage can save you and your business from costly lawsuits and employee issues as it protects your business and it’s employees. JayMar Insurance Agency can provide you with a program that is specifically designed to meet your needs. Contact us now for a free quotation.

Personal Life, Disability and Long Term Care
