After finishing a workout at her local fitness center, a customer walks back to the locker room. As she passes the water station, she slips on a wet floor, falls, and sprains her wrist. The fitness center staff was unaware of the wet floor, and there was no sign out to warn guests.
She requires medical care and files a claim against the business due to her injury. Because the fitness center owner has General Liability insurance, they are protected from the financial implications that result from this claim up to the amount of afforded coverage.
Business Personal Property
A local health club invested in new fitness equipment. Upon arrival, it was inspected and found in good condition. It was assembled and placed in their storage area while they made arrangements to have it added to their workout area.
A few days later, a small fire breaks out in the storage area where the new equipment is being kept. Although the club’s staff is able to put out the fire quickly and nobody is hurt, the new equipment suffers significant smoke and heat damage.
The total cost to repair or replace the equipment is estimated at $50,000. Luckily, the health club has Business Personal Property coverage as part of their insurance policy, and they are able to make a claim to help cover the cost.
Without this coverage, a business may have to bear the full cost of the damage out-of-pocket, which could have a significant impact on their financial stability and ability to continue operating.
While on vacation, a health club business owner receives a call from their gym manager informing him that a water pipe burst inside the building overnight and caused extensive damage to the flooring, walls, and some workout equipment. The club will need to temporarily close until the repairs can be completed.
Business Property insurance can help cover the costs of the building repairs, replacing damaged equipment, and possibly lost revenue due to the closure.
An owner of a fitness center received a call from his IT manager informing him their system was hacked, and sensitive customer information was stolen. The owner immediately contacts his Cyber Security insurance provider and files a claim.
Cyber Security insurance can help cover the costs associated with a data breach, including forensic investigation, legal and notification expenses, credit monitoring for affected customers, and even necessary public relations expenses. The insurance coverage may also provide financial support for claims filed by impacted customers, including compensation for financial loss or identity theft resulting from the breach.
While at work, a health club’s personal trainer accidentally drops a weight on their foot, and they end up with a serious injury that requires surgery and extensive physical therapy. As a result, the personal trainer is unable to work for several months and requires ongoing medical treatment. Because the injury occurred on the job, they file a Workers’ Compensation claim to help cover their medical bills, lost wages, and other related expenses.
Workers’ Compensation insurance can help cover the financial costs of these types of claims, as well as medical bills, lost wages, and even legal fees or other expenses related to the claim.
