WORKERS COMPENSATION INSURANCE
Like most employers, you’re required by federal law to have workers’ compensation insurance for your employees. At the same time, states have their own rules, and they can create additional compliance headaches for your organization.
Workers compensation is a type of insurance coverage that protects your employees in case of injury or disease during the course of employment. Policies can provide coverage for:
Imagine that a fire breaks out and you lose your entire inventory. Or your business is burglarized causing physical damage and possibly lost assets. Your ability to recover from these incidents is dependent on your commercial property insurance.
If you intend on opening your business to the general public, general liability coverage is just the tip of the iceberg in terms of the coverage you will need. For a more comprehensive approach to coverage, we encourage you to consider commercial property policy. A typical Commercial Property Insurance policy includes coverage for:
Structure (building) of your business
Damage to the property of others
It’s a basic fact of doing business: as much as you count on commercial property insurance to be there for you in the event of catastrophic damage to your facilities, you also need to protect your organization from potentially ruinous lawsuits that can arise as a result of accidents or negligence.
Without appropriate general liability insurance coverage, you could be putting the future of your business at serious risk.
Under most general liability insurance policies, your business can be protected from lawsuits resulting from:
Bodily injuries that occur to customers, employees, vendors or visitors on your premises
Personal injuries sustained as a result of the actions or negligence of one of your employees
Property damage caused by your employees
Advertising injury (damage from slander or false advertising)
The amount of coverage you will need depends on factors such as the type of business you run and its location.
Imagine you were involved in an accident in your personal vehicle while engaged in company business. Did you know your personal insurance may not cover you? What if you have employees on the road making service calls to customers? Even if your employees use company cars for both business and personal use, it would be good to look into purchasing a commercial vehicle policy for your business. If the business is the owner of the vehicle, make sure the name of the business appears on the policy as the “principal insured” rather than your name.

The right insurance to cover defense costs and damages related to various employment-related claims can be critically important to help protect business assets.
