A Liability Insurance Program Providing Protection
from Lawsuits of Bodily Injury and/or Property Damage
The Ascend Insurance Brokerage, A Higginbotham Company vendor liability program has been structured to meet the needs of vendors big and small.
We have specifically tailored programs in place that offer the coverage you need to
keep your business protected. Our
programs are available for one-day special events, annual policies, and anything in between.
While many vendors are accustomed to acquiring insurance on a solo basis,
Ascend Insurance Brokerage, A Higginbotham Company also offers the convenience of group policies.
For events with multiple vendors, our group policies help save time and money while still
offering the same world-class protection and customer service we are known for.
This program provides protection for the Policyholder against
claims of bodily injury liability, property damage liability, personal and
advertising injury liability and the litigation costs to defend against such
