Publishers face a variety of risks, from the subject of a tell-all book suing for libel to an injury at your printing press. The high cost of lawsuits and other unexpected incidents makes insurance a wise investment. State laws, client contracts, and lease agreements may also require you to carry coverage.
These insurance policies cover common risks in the publishing industry.
A general liability policy covers accidents that injure clients or damage their property. Bundle it with commercial property insurance in a business owner’s policy (BOP) for a discount.
This policy covers expenses if a publisher is sued for mistakes, plagiarism, or defamation. It's sometimes referred to as professional liability insurance or errors and omissions insurance.
A business owner's policy, or BOP, is a cost-effective way for publishing companies to purchase general liability coverage and commercial property insurance together.
Most states require workers' comp for publishing businesses that have employees. It also protects sole proprietors from work injury costs that health insurance might deny.
If your publishing company experiences a data breach or cyberattack, cyber liability coverage pays for recovery expenses, customer notification, and other related costs.
Commercial auto insurance helps cover costs if a vehicle owned by a publishing company is involved in an accident. It's usually required for business-owned vehicles.
