Commer Insurance: What Coverages To Consider
Commercial Property Insurance
You may think that since you are a renter, or have a home business, you don’t need commercial property insurance. That is the wrong way of thinking. Commercial property insurance is not just about the physical building, it is about the things that you use every day in your business. If you have an office, it will cover your desks, files, computers, phones, and copier. If you are a manufacturer, it covers your raw materials and your machinery. For stores, it is your registers, inventory, display racks, and more.
Commercial Liability Insurance
Liability is one of the biggest risks that most businesses face. In a world where suing businesses is a national pastime, the chances of you getting sued are very high. About 33% of businesses get sued in any given year. Some businesses are at higher risk than others, but taking this risk is not worth it for most businesses when legal action could put you out of business. Even if you win the case, the cost of the legal defense could be very prohibitive.
Workers Compensation Insurance
Connecticut requires that employers who have one or more employees, no matter whether they are full or part-time, cover them with workers’ compensation insurance. Their weekly wage doesn’t matter.
