Business Owner Policy
This is a type of coverage designed to protect businesses against the liability and property risks they face with a single policy. A business owners policy will cover your business property, its contents (e.g. equipment, inventory), the cost of business interruption due to a covered cause, and your legal liability.
How much coverage should I buy?
Before you can purchase a business owners policy, you need to know the value of what you’re trying to protect. Take a business inventory, totaling the value of your property and its contents, and total it up to determine how much coverage you should buy.
Why choose a business owners policy?
With a single policy, you can defend against the majority of the risks your small or mid-sized business faces. Eliminate gaps and the hassle of paying multiple premiums with this type of coverage.
When a business owners policy doesn’t quite fit your specific business, you can turn to a more flexible coverage option to best protect your business property. That’s where your commercial property insurance steps in. Whether you work from home, lease your office, or own your own building, this coverage can help protect your property and your hard work.
What will my commercial property insurance cover?
Your policy will contain the coverage your unique business needs. We can tailor your policy to include the following coverage options, as needed:
- Your building itself
- Outdoor signage

As the name implies, workers’ compensation is a type of coverage that compensates your workers after they becoming injured or ill in the course of their work. That means that if your equipment malfunctions, another member of your team doesn’t follow proper safety protocols, a chemical leaks, or your staff faces other issue, they’re covered.
Workers’ compensation covers medical expenses and rehabilitation costs. It also reimburses the injured or ill party for wages lost due to the resulting inability to work until health is resorted.
Why do I need workers’ compensation?
There are a few reasons you need to consider workers’ compensation for your business. First, it’s important for protecting your team. With workers’ comp, your employees can rest easy knowing that if they’re injured or become ill on the job, your business will be able to cover medical expenses and lost wages until health is restored.
Workers’ compensation also benefits your bottom line. With this type of coverage, your employees never have to sue you to cover their expenses after an injury or illness. Your policy could be the thing that stands between you and lawsuit after a workplace accident.
