What type of insurance does this industry need?
- This policy protects your business in case of third-party claims, such as bodily injury or property damage. Getting the right General Liability policy in place can help you get more jobs and grow your business. General Liability insurance is often considered to be a core coverage, particularly for businesses that regularly physically interact with customers and do work at other people’s properties. In addition, a General Liability policy is usually required for you to get a job.
- This policy, common in the professional services industry, helps to protect your business if a client believes they've suffered a loss due to a mistake or error made in a professional capacity. Your business may have contracts with clients or partners that require Professional Liability coverage, provide a "warranty or guarantee," or have clauses that require you to "indemnify or hold harmless" your clients. If so, Professional Liability coverage is often recommended. This coverage is also commonly recommended for any businesses providing advice related to legal or financial matters.
- 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.
