Akron, Ohio -

The Allen Thomas Group (ATG), an independent insurance agency based in Akron, OH, has recently published a blog post that explains the exclusions in business insurance policies. Typical exclusions contained in business insurance policies may include professional services rendered without payment to clients (which should be covered by workers’ compensation), pollution claims, intentional or illegal acts, and more. It is essential for business owners to go through their policies with their broker and inquire about what exactly those things are or aren’t covered. It also makes sense to get advice for the specific needs of the business to ensure maximum protection for the business.

Joe Race, CEO of ATG, says, “Exclusions in business insurance policies can seem like the equivalent of opening Pandora’s Box; their confusing regulations often leave policyholders in the dark. When claims unexpectedly arise outside their coverage zone, disastrous consequences usually follow suit and leave policyholders struggling to understand uncovered claims in the dark. Our new blog post offers a comprehensive guide that will demystify the exclusions in your policy and equip you with strategic steps towards securing more robust coverage for your enterprise.”

Exclusions define those specific situations or risks in which the insurance policy will not provide coverage. These can vary for various kinds of policies and insurers. To get a thorough knowledge of what exactly the policy will cover and exclude, it is important to examine the terms and conditions carefully.

There are certain common exclusions for certain types of insurance. For instance, general liability policies tend to exclude coverage for professional services such as consulting or legal services, which is why these kinds of businesses may want to get additional errors and omissions (E&O) coverage for protection against professional negligence claims. Insurance policies also don’t cover unlawful or malicious acts done by the insured or their employees.

Many general liability insurance policies exclude pollution claims that may arise from something as simple as the use of cleaning solutions for the business. For businesses that need to handle hazardous materials or take part in activities that may cause damage to the environment, an environmental liability policy may be critical.

General liability insurance policies also don’t cover injuries suffered by workers while on the job. Such risks are covered by workers' compensation insurance. Some insurance policies don’t cover product recalls, which can cause significant financial damage to a business. Businesses will need to closely examine their business insurance policies to make sure they buy additional coverage whenever needed.

Joe Race says, “Negotiating the complex world of business insurance policy exclusions can be an intimidating experience. Each policy may contain its own set of exclusions that vary greatly and make up its exclusion list. Business owners must seek professional guidance when it comes to understanding and analyzing exclusions in their coverage agreements. Insurance brokers and attorneys with expertise in insurance are invaluable sources of guidance that will allow you to make more informed decisions regarding coverage options.”
