In our litigious environment today, you really do have to be protected as a business owner and a consumer. My personal insurance is covered by my home owners. My business has a full array of insurance to protect me from claims of all types by customers, vendors, and even people I come across on the way to the store for my business. I’m sure there is a gap somewhere… I just hope not.

If you run a business it is also a good idea to meet with an attorney to talk about this insurance and your business classification. You really want to be able to protect your personal assets.
