Janitorial Services Claim Scenarios

  • Bodily Injury Insurance

Tom owned a successful janitorial service business that was contracted to clean a group of supermarkets within New Jersey. One day just prior to a store’s opening, a worker was mopping the floor as a deliveryman entered. The deliveryman slipped and fell on the wet floor. He suffered a broken leg resulting in $32,000 in hospital and doctors’ bills and 18 months of lost wages. Tom was sued for negligence because his man had not put a caution sign or deterrent cones cornering off the wet zone. Tom’s NJ business insurance covered him for the suit in addition to providing $250,000 towards the $500,000 claim settlement.

  • Property Damage Insurance
