Business Owners Policy (BOP)
Also known as a BOP, this is a type of policy that packages together elements from General Liability, Commercial Property, and Business Interruption policies. Depending on the eligbility requirements (which vary by carrier), this is a great way for a business to get many of the protections it needs in a single policy. For businesses that have a storefront or regularly have third-parties visit their offices, this policy offers protections for the property you utilize while covering you in the case of non-employee bodily injury or property damage. Common claims such as slip-and-fall incidents or fire damages would both be covered by a BOP.

Product Liability
Product Liability insurance offers protection in the case of third-party claims (such as bodily injury or property damage) resulting from use of a covered product. If your business sells products and someone is injured by the use of the products, your company may be named in the lawsuit. Product Liability will pay for your legal defense and, if your company is found to be negligent, it will pay the injured third party.

Commercial Auto
Commercial Auto insurance provides coverages such as liability, collision, comprehensive, medical payments and uninsured motorist coverage. Any vehicle on the road must be insured, and any incidents that occur while a vehicle is being used for business purposes may not be covered by a personal auto policy. That's why it is so important to make sure you have Commercial Auto insurance for any vehicles owned by the business.

Workers Compensation
Workers Compensation covers an employee's lost wages and the cost of resulting medical treatment if they suffer a work-related injury or disease. It also covers services needed to help the employee recover and return to work. Workers Compensation coverage is mandatory in most states. The number of employees after which it's required differs by state, but you will generally need coverage once you have employees.
