Before starting a business, you’ll need to prioritize the kind of insurance policies you’ll acquire for your property, employees, and yourself. Depending on your business type, you may also want to add specialized coverages. Listed below are among the various commercial insurance types.
Property insurance is a policy that pays for damages or losses to properties that are personal or real. An example is having a property insurance policy cover all the costs caused by a fire in your office space. You can also buy additional coverages for your property, such as:
Liability insurance covers the injuries that third parties have that you accidentally or intentionally caused. If a person sues you for damage of property or personal injuries, then the expenses in resolving the suit and your defense are immediately covered by your liability insurance company. Shared risks, such as injuries of a customer inside your premises, are covered by general liability policies.
Commercial auto insurance policies cover vans, cars, trailers, and trucks used as service vehicles for your business. You’ll have reimbursement from the said coverage if your vehicles are stolen or damaged, or if the driver accidentally hits and injures a person or breaks property that you don’t own.
Workers' Compensation Insurance
A workers’ compensation insurance policy covers the injuries that an employee or worker gets while on the job. There are specific state laws that require business employees to have a similar plan to that of workers’ compensation insurance.
Now that you’ve read a generalized description of some of the known commercial insurance types, it’s time to choose which ones are suitable for your business. Make sure to choose wisely, or you’ll end up investing in insurance policies you won’t ever use.
