Re: Professional Liability Insurance for delivery or hiring crews

That's also where a good LLC makes sense. You have to run it properly, handle the finances properly, comply with all the (mostly straightforward) regulations, but it can keep the courts from "piercing the corporate veil" and coming after you personally. Think of it as another level of insurance. Sure, you may lose your business and all of its assets, but it lets you keep your own stuff, like your house. At least on the surface, it seems to make a lot of sense, but if you really want to get good advice, talk to a lawyer about it. Many will give you an short conversation for free or a minimal ($200-$500)charge.
