Commercial Coverage You Can Count On
Commercial business insurance is coverage for businesses and corporations, generally designed to cover the business, its employees and ownership. Since there are so many types of businesses with different needs and situations, commercial insurance can come in many shapes and sizes.
- Commercial Property Insurance
- General Liability Insurance
- Industry Special Circumstances Insurance
- Commercial Auto Insurance
Commercial Property Insurance
Commercial property insurance is used to cover property and equipment from the risk of disasters. Different types of properties and equipment are considered for commercial property insurance. Several factors, such as location and occupancy, are considered while determining the cost of commercial property insurance. Commercial property insurance may cover items such as: computers, furniture and equipment, exterior signs, fence and landscaping, important documents, inventory and others’ property.
General Liability Insurance
General liability insurance protects owners and operators of a business from a variety of liability exposures from claims that happen as a result of normal operations. Commercial general liability insurance covers legal defense costs if someone sues over a bodily injury, property damage, or advertising injury. Your Commercial General Liability policy can pay for everything from hiring a lawyer to court-ordered judgments and settlements.
Industry Special Circumstances Insurance
Your business will require its own set of special insurance coverages for the risks inherent in your industry. Sometimes these can be added as endorsements to your policy, or you can buy them separately. These could include items such as Malpractice, Bonds, Surety Bonds, Business Owners Policy (BOP), Commercial Package, Directors & Office (D&O), Errors & Omissions (E&O), Professional Liability, Commercial Flood, and Inland Marine.
Commercial Auto Insurance
Commercial vehicle insurance is a policy of physical damage and liability coverages for amounts, situations, and usage not covered by a personal auto insurance policy. This type of business insurance covers many types of commercial vehicles—from automobiles used for business purposes, including company cars, to a wide variety of commercial trucks and vehicles.
Employment Practices Liability Insurance (EPLI)
The average EPLI lawsuit settlement is roughly $125,000 and the median judgement against employers is about $200,000. This doesn’t include additional expenses, such as lost productivity or reputational damage. It can often be hard to defend yourself in an employee lawsuit, which is why its smart to have EPLI coverage to provide the funds to handle your defense and settle lawsuits quickly.
Laws like the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Family Medical Leave Act outline standards employers have to meet. When employers break these rules, even without meaning to, they may face a lawsuit. Employment practices coverage helps businesses handle the cost of these suits.
Unfavorable treatment due to national origin, race, ethnicity and/or disability.
Discrimination based on a person’s sex or unwanted sexual advancements or comments in the work environment.
Worker’s Compensation Insurance
For a new or start‐up business or even a current business owner, it is important to know that state law requires you to have workers compensation insurance coverage to protect the well-being of your workers and your business.
