Why do I Need Commercial Insurance?

If you have a business, you need commercial insurance because, frankly, stuff happens. Even if you’re very careful, natural disasters will happen. The thieves are not all in jail yet. People get injured and want to sue. People get angry in general and want to sue. Employees are only human and might not be able to work if ill or injured. These things can lead to a substantial financial loss. Commercial insurance will make sure that your business doesn’t go under due to unforeseen circumstances.

Types of Business Insurance

There are three types of business insurance with their own subtypes. There is limited liability insurance that covers legal or medical fees that you’ve been held responsible for. Commercial property insurance covers the cost of repairing or replacing any company property that gets damaged. Business income insurance compensates for lost income due to interruption of business or other extra expenses.

What Kind of Business Insurance Do I Need?

To start with, you need liability insurance, both general and professional. Liability policies cover legal fees and settlements if you are found liable for any damage or injury to others.  If you have employees, you’ll need workers’ compensation insurance. Even if your business is an LLC, you will still need insurance to take care of workers’ compensation, damages, and liabilities. If you are the sole proprietor, you will need liability insurance in order to protect your personal assets. WE can discuss what limits make sense for you and other aspects of coverage to be sure you are comfortable with your choices.
