Solution

Most general liability policies include medical payments insurance. It pays the cost of first aid and medical treatment for children or adults who are injured on the premises. Medical payments insurance is no-fault coverage, meaning it applies in the absence of a lawsuit.

Physical abuse or molestation coverage

Risk Factors

Childcare providers may be sued based on allegations that a child was physically abused or sexually molested. Claims may arise from acts allegedly committed by the operator or their employees, volunteers, visitors, or family members.

Solution

The plaintiff claims the provider failed to adequately supervise an employee or volunteer or hired someone without a proper background check. Unfortunately, many liability policies covering childcare facilities exclude claims alleging physical abuse or molestation. Fortunately, some insurers offer abuse and molestation coverage for an additional premium.

Property coverage

Risk Factors

If you own the building that houses your childcare facility, you may need commercial property insurance to help protect both your building and its contents. Likewise, if you rent, you may need property insurance to cover your valuable equipment.

Solution

You can get coverage based on a particular cause, which means you’re covered for events like fire, burglaries, vandalism, and frozen pipes.

Auto coverage

Risk Factors

Your pick-and-drop van might face an accident and get damaged. You become liable for the damages caused and also for the lawsuits, if any.

Solution

Suppose you use a car, truck, van, or combination of vehicles for your childcare business. In that case, you need commercial auto insurance to cover damages and lawsuits in case of an accident.

Umbrella liability coverage

Risk Factors

You might face instances where the expenses incurred exceed your insurance coverage. If you don’t have enough coverage, you will be liable to pay the additional money from your pocket.

Solution

Umbrella liability insurance provides additional coverage when claims exceed the limits of underlying liability policies, including general liability and commercial auto insurance. Legal fees can easily exceed coverage limits on liability policies, and one liability policy can’t compensate for another. Umbrella insurance picks up where your other liability policy falls short.
