What Coverages Does My Business Need?
Your business faces many different risks and hazards daily. With that in mind, your insurance coverage must be equipped to provide diverse protection. When compiling your policies, consider the following coverages:
- General liability—If your business is responsible for bodily injury, property damage or personal and advertising injury, this coverage can help pay for resulting medical care, repairs and legal expenses.
- Professional liability—Also often referred to as errors and omissions insurance, this coverage protects you if a client or customer alleges that your services were inadequate or negligent.
- Commercial property—This coverage protects property you own or rent to operate your business, such as structures, equipment, inventory and signage.
- Employment practices liability—If your business is accused of improper employment practices, such as wrongful termination, discrimination or sexual harassment, this coverage can help pay for legal expenses, judgments and settlements.
- Workers’ compensation—This coverage provides assistance if an employee is injured on the job or develops a work-related illness. It can help pay for medical treatment, rehabilitation and lost wages.
- Business interruption—If an incident forces your business to cease operations temporarily, this coverage can help pay for resulting losses or expenses, such as relocation costs or lost revenue.
Businesses can consider many other types of coverage based on their specific operations. For example, companies that utilize vehicles should invest in commercial auto insurance.
