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.

When is it time to contact your auto insurance or home insurance agent to file a claim?

You might be thinking, "Whenever my car or house has been damaged, like by an accident, or a disaster." But deciding whether to file a claim can be a complex process.
