What does Commercial Insurance Cover?
There are several types of commercial insurance policies designed to protect your business from a variety of risks and dangers day to day. Some common and important coverages include:
General Liability Insurance
General liability insurance covers claims against the business concerning bodily injury, property damage and personal or advertising injury. If someone is injured on your business’ property, for example, general liability insurance can help pay for the victim’s medical bills and protect you against a related lawsuit.
Commercial Auto Insurance
Commercial auto insurance covers vehicles owned or used by the business for work purposes. If your business transports equipment, products or clients, you may need commercial auto insurance. These policies include a lot of the same coverages available under personal auto insurance such as comprehensive coverage, collision coverage, liability, medical payments coverage, uninsured/underinsured motorist and more.
Workers compensation insurance covers claims in case an employee is injured on the job. It can help cover medical bills, disability benefits, wage replacement and possible lawsuits related to a workplace injury.
Business Owners Policy
A business owners policy combines important coverages into a single policy for small businesses in low risk industries. A basic policy may include commercial property insurance and general liability insurance, but these policies also allow you to adjust and add coverage as needed.
How Much Commercial Insurance Do I Need?
Every business is different and you will need commercial coverage limits that are designed specifically to cover your business in case of an accident, disaster or lawsuit. In general, you should have enough insurance to cover the risks your business faces day to day. Speak with an insurance agent about ensuring your business for what it is worth.
