Your Company is Exposed!


Executive Risk Coverage is now, more than ever, a necessary part of your business protection program. It helps protect your assets and reduce decision-based exposures in today’s litigious society. How would your company survive if a company officer carried out an embezzlement scheme for multiple years? What if employees were involved in a workplace violence incident? What would you tell an employee who sues for benefits mismanagement?

According to New York Based insurer Hiscox, average settlements and defense costs are about $125,000. With a $35,000 self-insured deductible, companies are looking at paying out an additional $90,000.
