Delaware Business Insurance Update from CNC Insurance Assoc. " Work Comp Rates to Fall" 11-24-18

Business owners in Delaware can expect the costs of work comp insurance to be less next year. The Delaware Compensation Rating Bureau is proposing a 7% rate reduction in the residual market and a 10% in the voluntary market. This is a big win for the Delaware business economy. Companies large and small often cite the high costs of work comp insurance in Delaware as a major weight that stifles growth. If the rate reduction goes through,  then expect to see more business growth which will also boost the economy in Delaware. The filing has to be approved by the Delaware Insurance Department in early December. Until next time be careful out there and know your risks.

Delaware Business Insurance Update from CNC Insurance Associates "Don't Sign That Contract Until You Know The Risk Transfers" November 18 2018

I continue to see business owners sign contracts without knowing how much risk they may be taking on. Contracts are a part of business and you have no choice but to sign them however there are things you should know to reduce these risks.

Understand the contracts you sign in your business !!
Contracts may transfer risk to you that you were not expectingMake sure you know who is requesting to be an insured on your policy, from the contractWatch indemnity clauses and hold harmless clauses as they may expose your business to more risk than what is insurableMany of the terms and conditions of contracts last many years after the contract is complete. Understand your long term risks.Broad indemnity contracts can impose your business to protecting the interests of parties not part of the contract, Read the fine print  Until next time be careful out there and know your risks.
