General Liability
This policy protects your business claims of bodily injury, property damage or advertising and personal injury (aka reputational damage). For example, the oh-so-common "slip and fall" claim would be handled under your General Liability policy. More likely than not, you have a contract, like a loan or a lease or mortgage, requiring you have General Liablity insurance. Even if you don't, this is the absolute best measure you can take to make sure you're covered in case of a law suit against your business.

Workers Compensation
Workers compensation coverage covers lost wages and medical treatment resulting from an employee’s work-related injury or illness. It also covers services needed to help an employee recover and return to work. This is the law in all 50 states. As soon as you have your first non-owner employee, it's time to get Workers Comp insurance. Not having this insurance can lead to hefty fines, and of course, it means the business has to pay for any workplace injury claims.
