As a business owner, you need similar insurance coverages for your vehicles you use in your business as you do for vehicles used for personal travel -- liability, collision and comprehensive, medical payments (known as personal injury protection in some states) and coverage for uninsured motorists. In fact, some business people use the same vehicle for both business and pleasure.
Whether your vehicles are owned by personally or by your business, you need to make sure that you have proper coverage as well as adequate limits. A good insurance agent will ask you many details about how you use vehicles, who will be driving them in order to assess proper coverage for your needs.
While many coverages can be the same, a business auto policy differs from a personal auto policy in many aspects. Ask your insurance agent to explain all the differences and options.
Unfortunately for every business owner, the chances of getting sued have dramatically increased in the last decade. General Liability insurance may prevent a lawsuit from turning into a financial disaster by providing financial protection in case your business is ever sued or held legally responsible for some injury or damage.
General Liability pays losses for bodily injury, property damage, or personal injury arising from your operations subject to exclusions, etc. Some policies include coverages, such as:
Broad Range of General Liability Protection
- Bodily Injury, including the cost of care, the loss of services, and death that results from injury
- Property Damage coverage for the damage to property of others or the loss of use of that property
- Products-Completed Operations provides liability protection (damages and legal expenses up to your policy's limit) if an injury ever resulted from something your company made or service your company provided
- Products Liability is a more specialized product liability insurance that protects your company against lawsuits from product-related injury or accidents
- Contractual Liability may extend limited coverage for liability you may assume by entering into a variety of contracts
- Other coverages may include: Reasonable Use of Force; Borrowed Equipment; Host Liquor Liability; Fire, Lightning or Explosion Damage to Rented Premises; Legal Defense Costs; Personal Injury; Advertising Injury; and specialized liability protection for specific business types
Commercial Property Insurance
Most people believe that special form property insurance covers all risks. The fact is that it doesn't work that way. Different policies respond in different ways and small nuances can add up to big differences in your level of protection.
If your business owns, rents or leases property, you should have commercial property insurance. Property insurance covers your buildings and their contents, and outside structures subject to exclusions, etc.. Depending on your policy, coverage can include protection for furniture, machinery, merchandise, money, accounting records, electronic data, valuable documents, and items not directly attached to the building such as signs and fences.
Workers compensation laws were created to ensure that employees who are injured on the job are provided with fixed monetary awards. This eliminates the need for litigation and creates an easier process for the employee. It also helps control the financial risks for employers since many states limit the amount an injured employee can recover.
Workers Compensation Insurance is designed to help companies pay these benefits. As a protection for employees, most states require that employers carry some form of Workers Compensation Insurance. Workers Compensation Insurance is not health insurance. Workers Compensation is designed specifically for injuries sustained on the job.
In most states, if you have employees, you are required to carry Workers Compensation coverage.
