You know you’re covered with New City Risk.
General Liability Insurance
General Liability Insurance is what covers your company from 3rd party liability. That is claims from physical injuries, whether bodily or property injury, from a party outside your company. This can happen if someone is injured from using one of your products or injured while on your property.
Coverage is not one size fits all and there are specific risks that certain companies will want to cover while others will not. This coverage can then be tailored to the needs of each business. For example, a tech company could cover themselves against personal injuries caused from a blog post or from claims of advertising injury caused while marketing. Read more…
Errors & Omissions Insurance
When you get covered for Errors & Omissions (E&O), you are protecting your business from two major risks. The first risk is the financial loss of a third party from the failure of the insured’s product to perform as intended or expected. The second risk is the financial loss of a third party caused by an act, error, or omission by the insured while in service for another party.
For any product you offer, whether it is software, a program, a physical good or even a service provided, there is an expectation of the performance of that product. Your E&O Insurance covers you if your product does not meet that (implicit or explicit) expectation. E&O Insurance covers litigations, settlements, and required court judgments. Read more…
Cyber Liability Insurance
Cyber Liability Insurance protects companies against 3rd party claims of proprietary loss resulting from a variety of electronic activities. Usually these electronic activities involve collecting some form of sensitive, personal, or confidential information.
Basically, if you hold sensitive data of any kind on a computer or electronically, there is risk that this information could be exposed or stolen by a hacker. If a network breach happens, Cyber Liability Insurance is meant to cover the costs associated with the breach, including costs to defend claims, fines, penalties, the loss resulting from identity theft, notification costs, and credit monitoring. It will also cover the cost for the loss of income during the time that your company needs to be shut down during the cyber security issue. Read more…
Directors and Officers Insurance
Directors and Officers (D&O) Insurance protects companies and their directors and officers from claims filed in response to the actions of directors and officers at the company when acting in the capacity of a director or officer.

D&O covers executives at a company, including board members. It can also be extended to cover company lawyers and external advisors. This insurance covers that cost of litigation and settlement brought against directors and officers. It can include lawsuits from customers, vendors, company shareholders, regulatory agency investigations, and criminal prosecutions. Read more…
