Our business property insurance protects your properties from minor accidents to major financial losses.

Property Insurance may cover two types of property losses:
- Direct losses may be covered when property is lost, stolen, damaged or destroyed.
- Indirect or consequential losses related to direct losses may also be covered.
COMMERCIAL GENERAL LIABILITY INSURANCE
Casualty insurance is something a business owner cannot do without. This protects the insured company against injury or damage claims made by other parties.
Policies provide coverage for liability arising out of:
- Premises and Operation
- Fire Damage Liability (damage by fire to premises rented to insured)
- Personal and Advertising Injury
- Medical Payments
- Products/Completed Operations
A business owners package will save you time and money on your overall company insurance program. Such a package combines your liability, property and other types of coverage into one comprehensive policy. Unfortunately, million-dollar lawsuits are common these days, which sometimes means adding extra liability protection in the form of a commercial umbrella policy. The experts at Smith Insurance will recommend the plan that makes the most sense for you and your business.
