This coverage includes comprehensive general liability, products/completed operations, personal/advertising injury, fire legal liability, premises medical and employee benefits liability.

Crime Coverage

Can cover your business for loss due to various types of employee dishonesty, embezzlement, and theft.

Workers Compensation

The State of North Carolina requires any employer who has 3 employees or more (1 owner and 2 employees)to provide Workers Compensation coverage. This coveragee is required by law and is, therefore, not optional. The insurnace carriers that offer Workers Compensation in North Carolina do not all charge the same rates for each class of business.  The differences in rates by class code from one company to the next can be dramatic. We represent some of the most competitive Workers Compensation providers in the State.

Professional Liability

Also known as Errors & Omissions Liability (E&O), Directors & Officers Liability (D&O), or Malpractice Insurance, Professional Liability provides our clients with insurance protection if a suit is brought against them claiming, among other things, that the advice a person gave or failed to give, or the acts they performed or failed to perform for a client/patient, caused financial loss or bodily injury.

This type of litigation can be very expensive to defend.  Even if the claim is denied by the court, there are often significant attorney fees involved.  Professional liability coverage can respond both to damages awarded and defense costs incurred for these type of claims.

What Our Customers Say!
Fletcher, I wanted to just send you a note to let you know how thankful we are to Linda Welborn for all of her work on our homeowner's and auto policies. This is the first time I can honestly say that someone took the time to explain the different levels of insurance to me and discuss what we actually needed, rather than what they wanted to sell me. I learned so much from this experience! In addition to the "education" she provided, she provided a proposal to us very quickly and was able to finalize everything in a very timely manner. We are thrilled to be working with your team going forward! Sincerely, Laura Blythe

It boils down to matching the premium you pay to your risk as a customer, says State Farm spokesman Dick Luedke. "Sometimes you get lucky and violate (traffic laws) a lot and don't get caught, and sometimes you do it once, and you are caught," he says. "That's why we use all sorts of other things to measure risk as well." So it's tough to say how much your insurance premiums will rise per violation. Different insurers calculate premium costs differently, Worters says. With the help of experts, including J. Robert Hunter, insurance director for the Washington, D.C.-based Consumer Federation of America, we now identify what are considered the five worst traffic violations for your insurance bills:
