  • Gallagher could get $30 million for Rolling Meadows move

  • Assuming risk: Are you taking on more than you should?
    There’s no such thing as an uncovered risk or an unpaid claim. It’s just a matter of whether it’s the insurance company covering it or it’s you. Virtually every company owner is shocked to learn what risks their insurance strategy is not covering and how much risk they are taking on, and too often the business owner only finds out they’re forced to write checks for unpaid claims.
     
  • The success of any business depends primarily on initiative and hard work. These aspects of business are easier to control than the possibility of losing property to a fire or someone slipping and falling on the premises.   That’s why insurance is so important for people who own businesses.
