Common Types of Commercial Insurance

Getting the right type of insurance is important to protect your business. Many small business owners start with a Business Owner’s Policy (BOP) for their commercial insurance needs. It combines three primary coverages into one convenient policy:
 
Commercial property insurance helps protect your company’s physical location and business property, including:
 
  • Computer equipment
  • Inventory
  • Tools
  • Furniture
  • Accounts receivable
Commercial general liability insurance, which helps protect your business from claims of:
 
  • Bodily injury
  • Property damage
  • Libel and slander
  • Advertising mistakes
Business income insurance helps replace your business’ lost revenue if you can’t open because of property damage.

Additional Types of Commercial Insurance

Different types of businesses have unique insurance needs and not all businesses need the same types of commercial insurance. We’re here to help you get the right type of coverage. You can tailor your commercial insurance policy and add optional coverages, such as:
 
  • Commercial auto insurance, which helps cover you and your employees on the road if you’re driving for business.
  • Commercial flood insurance, which covers flood damage caused by rain, snow, hurricanes or construction runoff. This kind of damage is not included in standard property coverage.
  • Commercial umbrella insurance, which helps protect your business from claims that exceed your policy limits by extending your liability coverage.
  • Cyber insurance to help protect your company from cyber threats and attacks.
  • Workers’ compensation insurance to help your employees if they suffer work-related injuries or illnesses. Coverage requirements vary by state, so make sure you know if you need this insurance.
  • Errors and omissions insurance, which helps your business if your customer sues you for financial losses due to a mistake you made in the process of doing business. This coverage is also known as professional liability insurance.
