Insurance coverages to consider when starting a new company.
Are you thinking of starting your own business? If so, you could be joining the thousands of Americans who have taken a leap of faith and started their own company. Maybe you’ve found an untapped market or you’ve noticed people respond to your talents and you’re ready to make some money. For a brand new business owner, it can be daunting to understand all of your insurance options. Fortunately, we’ve compiled a list of must-have coverages for the budding entrepreneur.
Business owner’s policy (BOP)
A business owner’s policy, or BOP, combines the protection of general liability insurance and property insurance into one convenient, discounted bundle for small businesses. It can offer coverage for:
- Third-party lawsuits over bodily injury
- Third-party lawsuits over property damage
- Product liability lawsuits (if a customer sues you after being hurt by your product)
- Immediate medical expenses for third parties injured on your premises
- Theft, vandalism, or destruction of your business property – including your equipment, building, and supplies
Cyber liability insurance
If you operate online, you will need cyber liability insurance. Such a policy can help small businesses recover quickly from a cyber attack if cyber criminals hack your system or steal valuable data.
Commercial auto insurance
Your personal auto insurance won’t cover you when you’re driving for business. If you use a company vehicle or your personal vehicle is the company vehicle, look into commercial auto insurance. This helps to protect you on the roads while you’re working.
