What are different types of insurance policies and their uses?

Insurance policy is vital for every business to minimize the risk of suffering from losses and damages by providing coverage for them. Insurance offers protection for all the aspects of your business, such as machinery, employees, and assets of the business. Insurance also covers the risk of suffering from any financial loss in the future due to any unexpected events. Liability insurance covers you from any loss or damage done to a third party by your product. In such a case, you will not have to compensate for the damage; the insurance company will pay for it. Having your business insured strengthens your financial condition.
