Why Is Dental Supply Store Insurance Important?

Whether you just sell or also manufacture the products you distribute, insurance can save your business in unexpected situations. Otherwise, financial damages could force your store to close due to the financial impact of an unexpected and insured claim.
Here are some scenarios where dental supply store insurance can protect your business:
- A customer walks into your store and breaks their back because the floors were slippery.
- A dental office sues you for selling faulty dental supplies, or for sending the wrong supplies.
- Your warehouse could be subject to vandalism, theft, a flood, or a fire.
- You are named in a lawsuit against on of your major suppliers for products sold.

For example, if a customer suffers injury or property damage as a result of a defective product from your store, product liability coverage can cover medical expenses, settlement awards, etc.
