Each and every company has it’s own risks that can evolve in huge financial losses and lead to bankruptcy if you do not have additional finances to help you. For instance, a client buys a burger from a certain take-away place and gets extremely ill from the burger. The person decides to contact the owner and sue the take-away place. The client will win a case of negligence and life endangerment due to health and safety regulations that was not followed by the employees of the take-away place. People do not get ill from food that is fresh and prepared under the right conditions. It was a mistake made by an employee and it falls under the business. So, when you have business insurance you can either take action against the lawsuit or just compensate the client for the bad experience.
