    • Directors and Officers Insurance– Protects board members against accusations of financial mismanagement or fraud.
    • Products Liability Insurance– Provides protection against claims of defective or dangerous products. This type of coverage is essential if you sell products to raise money.

    Depending on the specifics of your organization’s activity, you may need all of the types of insurance listed above or only a few. Coverage options and limits may also vary. We can help you review your risks and obtain policies suited to your nonprofit’s individual needs.

  • Public Works Construction

    Public Works Construction

    The public works construction industry is wrought with guidelines, regulations and requirements. Companies operating within this industry are held to high standards, and they are also exposed to a great deal of risk. As a result, businesses in the public works construction industry must select insurance policies carefully, manage claims efficiently and engage in effective loss control in order to succeed. Fortunately, we understand the nuances of this particular industry.

    Insurance Products for Public Works Construction

    Companies involved in public works construction projects typically need the following types of insurance:

    • Commercial General Liability Insurance for Contractors – Designing an insurance and risk management program for a contractor begins with the Commercial General Liability (CGL) policy. This policy creates the backbone by which other policies are subsequently integrated to coordinate coverages, such as Builder’s Risk, Umbrella/Excess Liability, Professional Liability or Contractor’s Pollution Liability. These coverages should be reviewed in tandem to be sure gaps are properly identified and addressed. The CGL policy provides coverage for liability arising from bodily injury, personal injury or damage to property of third parties.
    • Commercial Auto Insurance – Commercial auto insurance protects your company from financial liability when accidents involving commercial automobiles cause injury or property damage. Depending on the options chosen, this type of insurance may also protect your investment in commercial automobiles.
    • Workers’ Compensation Insurance – We recognize our responsibility to monitor the entire Workers’ Compensation process — from coverage placement, classification review, to payroll audit processes and claims management. We don’t just react to changes in the Workers’ Comp environment; we pay attention and act preventively.

    Most of the types of insurance listed above are not only recommended, but also required by law. We can help you select policies that satisfy all of the legal requirements for public works construction contracts and provide adequate protection for your company.

    Contact Bender Insurance Solutions

    In addition to helping you insure your company, we can also provide a number of other services, including loss prevention, risk analysis, claims management, employee benefits administration and more. Contact us today to discuss your business’s unique needs. We look forward to working with you!

    Insurance for Property Management Companies

    Designed around the specifics of your business and portfolio, our tailored insurance programs address your exposures to position you for the future. Some of the most common policies purchased by property management companies include:

    • Professional Liability / Tenant Discrimination / Cyber Liability – As a property management company, you are open to accusations of tenant discrimination and/or wrongful eviction. Professional liability and Tenant Discrimination insurance can provide protection against these claims. Cyber liability is a newer coverage addressing a growing exposure. If you collect or store any private data on your tenants or employees you are required by law to have a data breach plan. Cyber Liability coverage is available to fund those breaches and to direct your senior team towards best-in-class public relations management.
    • Professional Liability – As a property management company, you are open to accusations of tenant discrimination and/or wrongful eviction. Professional liability insurance can provide protection against these claims.
    • Workers’ Compensation and Employment Practices Liability – If your company employs even one person, workers’ compensation is required by law. Workers’ compensation insurance will offer protection against claims of worker injuries and illnesses. A coverage not required by law, but highly recommended by our agency is Employment Practices Liability (EPL). California employers are more likely to have an employment related claim than under any other coverage line. Even with stellar HR practices a firm may find themselves needing defense support against allegations of wrongful termination, sexual harassment, discrimination, etc.
    • Property and Crime Insurance – Although the property you manage may be insured by the owner, property insurance is still necessary for your company if you own your own buildings, equipment or inventory. As a fiduciary for your owners we recommend that you purchase crime insurance. Employee dishonesty, forgery and alteration, computer fraud and extortion are all insurable exposures that even the best “checks-and-balances” firm should review and consider insuring.
    • General Liability – If residents or their guests sustain injuries on your property, you may be held responsible for damages. Purchasing general liability insurance will protect your company (and owners) from financial loss in these situations.
    • Commercial Auto Insurance– If you or your employees operate vehicles for business purposes, you need commercial auto insurance. Commercial auto insurance can protect your investment in company vehicles, and it provides protection from financial liability in the event of an accident.

    Other Services

    In addition to helping with insurance coverage, Bender Insurance Solutions offers other useful services to property management clients, including:

    • Claims Administration/Management
    • Safety Meetings
    • Vendor Agreement and Certificate Management Training
