Professional Liability

Protection for you and your business against claims of negligence from clients.

What's Typically Covered

Also known as Errors & Omission (E&O), professional liability covers negligence, copyright infringement, personal injury, and more.

The Intrepid Direct Difference!

We're an established insurance carrier that helps your firm grow and succeed while also providing you ways to avoid claims.

Property

Coverage for your building, inventory, equipment & more.

What's Typically Covered

Protects the structure itself, the inventory inside, your equipment and even your business income when damaged or lost after fires, tornadoes, thefts and more.

The Intrepid Direct Difference!

We offer businesses the option to “blanket” their property coverage. And, while most insurance companies take whatever limit is on your current policy and copy it over to your future one, we evaluate your property limit each year so you don’t have to worry about being under- or over-insured.

General Liability

Protection for you and your business against normal and expected losses.

What's Typically Covered

Costs associated with property damage, bodily injury, and more if a customer, supplier, or other party makes a claim against your product or service. This also includes on-premises accidents involving customers.

The Intrepid Direct Difference!

Our expert team works with you to ensure you are properly covered, even against the odd and unexpected.

Automobile

Insures the vehicles your business needs in order to operate.

What's Typically Covered

Comprehensive, collision, and liability coverage for company-owned vehicles.

The Intrepid Direct Difference!

Our expert team works with you to ensure all vehicles are properly covered.

Workers’ Compensation

Takes care of your most valuable assets in the event they are injured on the job.

What's Typically Covered

Lost wages and medical benefits for both you and your employees due to workplace injuries and illnesses.

The Intrepid Direct Difference!

It’s not only our responsibility to insure your business, but to help you manage the costs of doing so. We offer telemedicine services through MedCall Advisors – a 24/7 hotline that can triage incidents, perform post-injury drug screenings, can prescribe medication, and will file the first notice of loss documentation on your behalf.

Employment Practices Liability (EPL)

Defends against suits related to personnel management, peer, or customer disputes.

What's Typically Covered

Wrongful termination, wage & hour disputes, discrimination, and sexual harassment are all covered under our EPL policy.

The Intrepid Direct Difference!

Many policies on the marketplace are segmented, riddled with loopholes (like attorney fees) and low limits. This policy is packaged to cover all of your major risks — and costs — associated with employment practices.

Savings With A Personal Touch

It’s true, we’ve removed the middleman, but you’ll still get that personal touch to help you every step of the way.

With Intrepid Direct, you get an entire team all under one roof that collaborates with you to ensure you receive a complete insurance program. You’ll have a licensed Intrepid Direct Client Relationship Executive, a dedicated Client Success Advisor who walks you through the policy binding process and provides ongoing support, and a Claims team member (if and when a claim arises). A one-stop shop working together for all your insurance needs.
