Small businesses of all types need to be covered by a commercial insurance policy. A traditional business insurance policy will protect your company against any property damage caused by you or someone who works for you to a client’s property. If you pay anyone to work other than yourself then worker’s compensation insurance is a requirement. Employers’ liability insurance will protect you from employees who could potentially sue the company over pay discrepancies or work-related accidents.
This type of coverage can also help pay for claims if an employee is injured while operating company machinery or other vehicle and if they damage someone else’s property with that equipment or vehicle.
If you are the sole proprietor of a small business and do not carry the proper insurance then you could be held personally responsible for loss or damages. This could possibly result in losing your business and even personal property like your home.
General liability insurance will help protect you in the event a customer files a lawsuit due to an incident on company property or while you were performing a service on their property.
