Why do I need business insurance?

No matter how good you are at what you do, mistakes and accidents happen. Business insurance, aka Commercial Insurance, protects your business from unexpected disasters that could cause damage or financial ruin. The risks your small business could face will determine which policies you need.

Is business insurance required?

Most states require businesses to cover employees with workers’ compensation insurance. And business-owned vehicles are often required to have commercial auto insurance coverage.

As with all insurance, each state has its minimum requirements, so speak with an Insurance Advisor to see what level of business insurance is required by law in your state.

How much does business insurance cost?

The cost of business insurance depends on what industry your business is in, how many employees you staff, where your business is located, which policies you’re required to have by law, and what additional coverage you purchase. An Insurance Advisor can break it down for you.

Types of business insurance.

As a business owner, you need to be prepared for the unexpected, and insurance is one of the best ways to protect your finances when things go wrong. Having the right insurance coverages in place safeguards you from financial losses that could otherwise destroy your business.

Here’s an overview of the most important insurance policies to consider purchasing for your business. Or, if you prefer, you can check out our quick-hit explainer video.

Business owner’s policy (BOP)

Most small business owners start with a BOP which combines 3 essential coverages into a single insurance policy — general liability insurance, commercial property insurance, and business income insurance.

General Liability Insurance

This protection helps cover legal fees and medical expenses due to bodily injuries and property damage that your business might be legally responsible for. It also covers settlement costs.

Commercial Property Insurance

This covers your business property, including the building and its contents. It protects equipment, assets, and personal property used in the business from natural disasters, vandalism, fires, and theft.

Business Income Insurance

If you’re unable to operate your business due to an insured event, this policy can reimburse you for ongoing expenses like rent, lost income, payroll, and taxes.

Workers' Compensation Insurance

Workers Comp protects businesses from claims or lawsuits by employees who incur injuries while on the job or as a result of work-related duties. It’s a required coverage in most states.

Professional Liability

Also known as Errors & Omissions Insurance, Professional Liability Insurance helps cover claims related to mistakes that may have affected services provided to customers.

Commercial Auto

This insurance covers the costs of medical bills and property damage sustained by the other parties involved in a car accident if your company is found at fault.

Commercial Umbrella

Want an extra layer of protection to existing liability coverage by covering costs when liability limits of other policies max out? Ask us about the benefits of Commercial Umbrella Insurance.
