Commercial Casualty Insurance Coverage

At HWP, we understand that every business has its own set of challenges and requirements. We tailor our insurance programs to address these unique needs, offering options to protect every facet of your operation.

  • An essential coverage for nearly every business, it offers protection against claims of bodily injury, property damage, and more. This coverage is crucial for businesses with physical storefronts where customers or clients might visit and companies that install or sell products.

  • Tailored specifically for businesses involved in the manufacturing, distribution selling, or serving of alcohol. It protects against claims arising from damages or injuries caused by intoxicated patrons.

  • Designed for businesses that operate company vehicles, rent or hire autos, or use non-owned autos in the course of business. This policy can cover your liability from an auto accident that results in injuries and damage to other people’s property, along with the physical damages to your vehicle.

  • Necessary for businesses engaged in marine-related activities. It offers protection against claims stemming from accidents or damages involving watercraft.

  • Typically required by state statute and a must-have for businesses with employees. Workers Compensation safeguards against claims arising out of work-related injuries.

  • Tailored for businesses that own, lease, or rent aircraft, offering protection against potential liabilities arising from aerial operations.

  • For businesses seeking additional coverage above their primary policy limits. An Umbrella or Excess policy provides an additional level of protection for severe, high dollar liability claims.

  • Designed to complement General Liability, Workers Compensation, and other commercial casualty products, these policies can cover accident expenses incurred by employees, volunteers, and participants.. Policy types include Business Travel Accident, Student Accident, Participant Accident, and more.

  • Offers protection against claims related to pollution or contamination incidents. Policies include Pollution Liability Liability; Site Pollution for property owners, operators, and tenants; and Contractor Pollution Liability.

  • Essential for manufacturers and distributors, it covers the costs associated with recalling a faulty product from the market.

  • Tailored for contractors who face financial losses as a result of a pollution incident or environmental damage occurring during their construction or contracting activities. This coverage is needed by nearly all contractors, but in particular to those engaged in environmental remediation or handling of hazardous material. Standard general liability coverage typically does not cover this exposure.

  • For professionals and businesses offering specialized services. It safeguards against claims alleging negligence or harm resulting from the provided professional services.
