Liquor Liability
If your business serves an intoxicated patron whose actions result in damages, whether these actions occur on your premises or after the patron has left your establishment, this policy offers your business coverage for the costs of damages and legal defense. The majority of states have dram shop laws which hold a business liable for the actions of a patron if the business served the patron when they were clearly intoxicated. In addition, Liquor Liability insurance is often a lease requirement for bars and restaurants.

General Liability
This policy protects your business in case of third party claims, such as bodily injury or property damage. For example, the common "slip-and-fall" claim would be covered by your General Liability policy.

In addition, many businesses have a contract, like a loan or a lease, requiring that they have this coverage.

Commercial Property
This policy protects the business's physical assets and is appropriate whether you own or lease your space. Keep in mind that this policy will only offer protection in the case of covered events. If you need protection for certain scenarios, such as floods or earthquakes, you may need additional coverage. If you have a mortgage or a lease, you may be required to have property insurance. Even if you are not, this is the best way to protect the building you are in and the business property you have in case of a natural disaster or some other accident.

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.
