Every small business has it’s firsts. Making your first sale, hitting your first goal, and receiving your first liability claim. While insurance may not be the most exciting thing, it is one of the most important factors in your business model. Product liability insurance can provide financial security from costly claims—but what exactly does it mean for small businesses? Here are three ways your business can benefit from having product liability insurance.


Even with the most rigorous testing, mistakes can still occur and accidents can happen. In the case of an incident, product liability insurance can cover claims of:
  • Bodily injury or death
  • Property damage
  • Failure to provide warnings
Not all product liability insurance plans are created equal. We know insurance is not cheap, and when it comes to running your own business, every penny counts. Cheap product liability insurance does not always equal comprehensive coverage. At Insurance Canopy, we don’t believe you have to sacrifice quality for cost. We work hard to provide you with top-rated plans at an affordable price. Your business deserves a policy that is uniquely designed to fit your needs. We help you personalize your protection so you only have to pay for the coverages you need. Looking to calculate your costs? Submit a quote today for your free product liability insurance rate. Products on shelves are secure with product liability insurance.


One product liability claim can impact anyone involved in the production process, including:
  • Manufacturers
  • Importers
  • Wholesalers
  • Retailers
  • Distributors
A single claim could cost you thousands in out-of-pocket expenses, as well as damage your reputation, halt production, or lead to recalls. This can also ruin relationships you’ve built with customers, other businesses, and those who help produce and transport your products. Those are losses you may never recover from, and they can impact your revenue for years to come.


As a business owner, you are responsible for ensuring the safety of your products. While all products run the risk of causing bodily injury or property damage, Insurance Canopy offers protection for many types of consumer and industrial products. Some of these products are:
  • Beauty and cosmetic products
  • Cannabis products, both CBD topical and ingestible products
  • Cleaning products
  • E-cigarette and vape products
  • Grocery and food products
  • Health and household products
  • Home office equipment
  • Medical devices
  • Nutraceuticals, vitamins, and supplements
  • Pet supplies
  • Sporting equipment manufacturing
