What Do Policy Limits Mean?

Insurance limits are the maximum amount that your provider may pay out for claims in accordance with your policy. Most policies involve home and auto insurance with specified coverage limits, as explained by our agents here at AFI Insurance in Denver, CO.

Explaining Car insurance Limits

Auto insurance policies range in coverage limits depending on your policy type. It is possible to opt for higher liability limits to offer greater protection for your assets and any costs due to damages to another person’s property or an injury you’re found liable for. Typical liability coverage is $30,000 for property damage, $50,000 for bodily injuries per person, and $100,000 for bodily injuries per accident. You can choose a more comprehensive policy with extra coverage amounts.

Home Insurance Policy Limits

There are various components to home insurance policies, including the following:

Dwelling Limits

If you owe a mortgage on your home, financial lending companies will require you to have dwelling coverage in an amount that will cover the cost of rebuilding the home should it be severely damaged. The amount will depend on the replacement costs, which are determined by the age, size, and other features of the dwelling.

Personal Property Limits

The limits on personal property are generally 50% of your dwelling limits, but they can often be increased or decreased depending on your needs. If you want certain valuables covered up to full replacement costs, consider adding a rider or endorsement to insure them in addition to your primary policy.

Loss of Use and Personal Liability Limits

Insurance companies vary in how they set coverage limitations for loss of use for living expenses beyond your normal costs incurred when your house is being rebuilt or replaced due to covered losses. Some policies provide compensation for hotels, other lodgings, and meals for a set period. Owners with personal liability coverage if a household member is responsible for injury to other persons or their property.

BOP: The Fundamental Commercial Insurance Solution for Small Businesses

All businesses, including small businesses, are exposed to at least some risks. An unexpected accident, natural disaster, or other event can strike almost any business at almost any time. To help protect small businesses in Denver, CO, we at AFI Insurance often recommend a BOP insurance policy. This is a fundamental commercial insurance solution that meets many small businesses’ coverage needs.

Understanding BOP: What is a Business Owner’s Policy?

A business owner policy (BOP) is a specialized insurance policy designed to provide small businesses with essential coverage in a single, convenient package. By combining liability and property coverages, a BOP can protect against multiple risks that most companies face.

In addition to being convenient, purchasing a BOP usually costs a little less than getting each coverage individually. Bundling coverages in a single policy often provides some savings.

The commercial insurance coverages in a BOP can vary, but they typically include general liability, commercial property, and other optional protections.

General Liability Insurance: Protecting Against Third-Party Claims

General liability is commercial insurance that helps safeguard small businesses from certain third-party claims of bodily injury, property damage, defamation, and advertising injury. “Slip and fall” accidents and other common accidents that cause injury or damage to another party may be covered, as may defamation lawsuits.

Property Insurance: Safeguarding Physical Assets

Property insurance can protect small businesses’ physical assets, such as buildings, equipment, inventory, and furniture. With coverage against perils like fire, theft, vandalism, and natural disasters, property coverage can help businesses recover if something happens to their investments.

Customized Coverage Options: Tailoring BOP to Your Needs

In addition to these two protections, a BOP might also offer business income coverage, commercial auto coverage, or other protections. We at AFI Insurance can help you find the right ones for your Denver, CO business. Contact us today to find the insurance that your small business needs.
