Insurance for communications businesses

As technology and communications continually advance, your business is constantly evolving. Your business insurance should adapt to that change too. We believe that one size doesn’t really fit all, which is why we get to know your cable, internet, or other communications business before helping you determine what coverages are best for you.

Are you a national accounts broker or part of a large business looking for loss-sensitive program options? We offer specialized services for national accounts and brokers.

You know your communications business; we know insurance for communications businesses. We’ll help protect your business by offering:

  1. Bundled and unbundled loss control and industrial hygiene services
  2. Loss sensitive workers’ compensation insurance coverages
  3. Powerful cost-control tools

We focus on your claims, so you can stay focused on your communications business 

Claims happen. And when they do, our in-house claims management team is ready to help your communications business. We can take care of cost-containment, investigation, litigation, and even special instructions from you. No matter the size or difficulty of the claim, we’ll work to take care of it promptly and accurately, so you can keep moving your business forward.
