Is My Business at Risk?

By joshbennett on March 15, 2014 - Category: Assets Protection

Anyone who owns a business knows there are risks involved. However, often we mistakenly think of these risks as being limited to factors like marketplace demand, natural disasters (hurricanes, floods, etc.), the current state of the economy, uncertainties regarding the owner/manager’s health and potential disability, etc. Yet, liability goes beyond those factors. We live in a particularly litigious society, and lawsuits, whether legitimate or frivolous, abound. Anyone who has accrued assets is vulnerable.

As I discuss in my book, The Ultimate Guide to Asset Preservation, many businesses are high-risk. Industry estimates for the accounting profession, for example, revealed a startling 4000 lawsuits comprising a whopping $30 billion in potential liability. That’s just for accountants. Imagine what it’s like for medical professionals.

Even if you’re in the right, defending yourself against a frivolous lawsuit can run you into the hundreds of thousands.

Can your business withstand such an attack?

Are your personal assets, including your home and retirement accounts, also at risk?

Are your trademarks and trade name secure if you have to start all over again?

“I have liability insurance,” you say. “I’m fully protected.”  But, are you? Are you really? Most of us have health insurance but often the caps don’t protect against catastrophic illnesses and accidents. Will your liability insurance cover potentially massive punitive damages that might be awarded in addition to your basic liability?

It is critical for every business owner to protect their business and themselves against such attacks against their assets. A qualified licensed asset protection professional can advise you how to proceed, legally and comprehensively, so that you don’t one day find yourself handing over the key to your business to someone who hasn’t compensated you fully for it.

  1. Has it occurred to you that the 1970’s might have been the aberration?

    I see what you mean and would tend to agree, but I don�t think that it has to do with the individual that died. Of course the loss of life is unfortunate � and still ironically, very commonplace, but it�s more about those that deal with the lives lost that we�re discussing. To say that it no longer matters is a shortsighted view of the situation. I understand that it may seem ridiculous, but honestly � imagine your best friend dies in a plane crash. It�s a few years later, 5 � 10 or so. Someone makes a joke about that crash. In 10 more years from that joke will it be okay? No, it never really will be. At some point you move on, but that�s really an individual take on the loss isn�t it. Pretending that we all conform to your or even my take is naive and a little shortsighted. I understand your side, but side with the person who has an issue.
