Why You Need Protection
The U.S. Small Business Administration defines small businesses as those with fewer than 500 employees or less than $7 million in total annual receipts. Businesses that fall into this category must prepare for two broad types of liability:
- Internal. This can include everything from on-the-job injuries to discrimination lawsuits. Even if the business is not at fault, legal fees add up quickly.
- External. The possibilities are nearly limitless, from a customer slipping and falling on your property to a client losing money after taking your professional advice.
The frequency and expense of small-business lawsuits can be sobering:
Percentage of small businesses that have been threatened with or involved in a civil lawsuit.
Average legal fees in a workplace-rights case.
Median cost of a business liability lawsuit.
