When owning and operating a business of any size, it is important to obtain the necessary coverage to protect against the wide variety of risks associated with commercial operations. From general to specialized coverage, Burns & Wilcox has unlimited access to the broadest range of Commercial Insurance Coverage available.
Accident and Health
How confident are you in your Accident and Health insurance? Many basic coverages do not offer the specialized protection you need to cover your assets.
One of the most common risks faced by all organizations is financial loss caused by legal liability for injuries to persons or damage to the property of others. Having the right insurance policy in place can help an organization manage this risk. Often equated to liability insurance and one of the most important classes of coverage an organization can have, Casualty Insurance is liability coverage of an individual or organization for negligent acts or omissions.
Casualty Insurance represents the broad category of coverages available against loss of property, damage or other liabilities not directly concerned with life insurance, health insurance or property insurance.
Burns & Wilcox provides brokers and agents with access to causality specialists who can identify and assess the legal liability risks to your client’s business, home or car. As a leading provider of wholesale specialty insurance, Burns & Wilcox offers innovative casualty solutions for complex and hard-to-place risks.
Environmental coverage is a very specialized area of insurance that requires a deep understanding of government regulation and the potential environmental losses that could arise from your clients’ businesses. The Burns & Wilcox Environmental Center of Excellence, accessible through your local Burns & Wilcox office, provides brokers and agents with access to environmental specialists who can identify environmental exposures and deliver insurance solutions to address the specific environmental liabilities your clients may be vulnerable to.
