Most West Virginia businesses are required to carry Workers' Compensation coverage. There are exceptions, such as when you employ an independent contractor, agricultural employers with fewer than 5 full-time employees, and churches.
West Virginia requires that your Commercial Auto Insurance policy has limits of $20,000 for bodily injury liability per person, $40,000 bodily injury liability per accident, and $10,000 for property damage liability. Many WV businesses choose higher limits.
