TYPICAL PREMIUM COSTS FOR GENERAL LIABILITY INSURANCE IN ONTARIO!
It would be great to have a rough idea of the premiums involved to arrange the proper amount and type of liability coverage. The challenge is that an average is very misleading. With premiums typically starting at about $500 annually, they could easily escalate to several million for major manufacturers or industry. What then, is an average Ontario liability insurance premium?
Every commercial organization is different and requires a thorough understanding of the unique risks and exposures that may be faced. A small variety store may face being sued by a customer who slips on a carelessly wet floor. A manufacturer of hockey helmets may get sued if the helmet malfunctions and an injury results.
Suffice it to say that any reference to an average premium for commercial liability insurance would be misleading.
When the commercial insurance brokers at Guthrie Insurance get an inquiry for commercial liability insurance or “lawsuit” protection we will work closely with our insurance company partners to assist in providing you with the most appropriate coverage and limits, tailored to your specific requirements, and at the lowest possible premium costs.
WHAT FACTORS AFFECT PREMIUM COSTS OF COMMERCIAL GENERAL LIABILITY INSURANCE IN ONTARIO?
As with any type of insurance, the single biggest factor affecting liability premium costs boils down to the RISK involved. Generally speaking, the higher the risk of being sued for bodily injury or property damage, the higher the premium. Seems simple enough. Where it gets a bit more complicated is measuring the risk. This might be done from the perspective of frequency for a common type of loss such as slip and falls in a plaza parking lot. Or, it might take into account the ultimate severity of a loss. Commercial Liability insurance claims arising from passenger jet accidents are few and far between however, they are severe. Slip and falls in shopping mall parking lots are frequent but the damages are rarely substantial or severe.
As part of the risk factor, insurance companies need to understand the nature of the commercial activity and what the loss potential might be. This activity or commercial operation, is then measured against the similar activities of similar commercial enterprises and sales volume then becomes a factor. It stands to reason that two corporations doing essentially the same thing would have a similar risk profile. The premium then, might only be affected if one had considerably higher sales volume hence more “risk” in the market. Sales volume is a very important factor in determining commercial liability insurance rates.
Where a product originates, is destined or where a service is performed is also a major factor in premium determination. Every country has different laws and regulations affecting responsibility for damages and the monetary awards involved. Shipping skateboards to the USA? Expect a very high products liability insurance premium. Importing carpet from India? Modest.
Even the number of employees can affect liability insurance premiums. A company who 200 employees who is doing the same thing as another with 10 employees might also expect a higher premium.
The best way to get the most competitive commercial liability insurance premium for your organization is always to get in touch with the commercial insurance professionals at Guthrie Insurance.
