Research Team: What are some things I should be looking out for when underwriting a general liability policy for a small furniture manufacturer? 

ChatGPT: Here are some key points to consider when underwriting a general liability policy for a small furniture manufacturer:

  • Risks associated with the manufacturing process, including materials, safety measures, and hazards
  • Type of furniture produced and potential for damage or injury to customers
  • Past claims history and financial stability of the company
  • Location and potential for natural disasters or other events that could impact the business
  • Potential for product recalls, liability for faulty or defective products, and legal action
  • Potential for damage or loss to company property, such as machinery or raw materials
  • Risk of workplace accidents or illnesses to employees
  • Impact of emerging technologies, changing regulations, and other external factors on the business.

There’s a widening understanding gap between insurers and policyholders who may not fully understand the nuances of this relatively new and rapidly evolving product. In a landscape with a growing quantity of attacks, this understanding gap represents a significant risk for both insurers and policyholders.

As it stands now, most cyber coverages are somewhat of a catch coverage, with the included exclusions resulting in likely unexpected exposures for some policyholders.
