Business & Commercial Insurance Information
Small businesses can be exciting, lucrative and rewarding ventures, but the line between profits and deficits can be thin and difficult to navigate.

What Insurance Coverages Do Small Businesses Need?
The insurance needs of different businesses can vary significantly, but several core coverages may still be necessary for most companies, including:
General liability—This coverage is integral to protecting your business from losses and damages arising from incidents for which you were responsible. In most cases, general liability insurance can protect you from losses and damages arising from the following incidents:
- Personal and advertising injury (e.g., slander, copyright infringement, false advertising)
This coverage may render financial assistance for losses and damages to owned or rented property used to operate your business, including:
Workers’ compensation—This type of insurance is crucial in the aftermath of an employee being injured on the job or developing a work-related illness. Specifically, this coverage can help pay for the following expenses:
- Disability/death benefits
Professional liability—If your business is accused of negligence or providing improper services, this coverage, also known as errors and omissions insurance, can insulate you from losses and damages.
Business interruption—If your company is forced to pause regular operations temporarily, this coverage can help pay for the following expenses:

Employment practices liability—This coverage protects your business from losses and damages if accused of improper employment practices, such as wrongful termination, discrimination or harassment.
In addition to these core coverages, it may also be advisable to consider your specific operations and augment your insurance portfolio accordingly. For example, small businesses that regularly rely upon vehicles or technology should strongly consider commercial auto and cyber liability coverage, respectively.
How Much Does Small Business Insurance Cost?
Like your insurance needs, the cost of adequate coverage for small businesses can vary significantly. When determining your premiums, providers must consider several factors. In most cases, the following criteria of your business will be considered:
Before quoting you a price for coverage, providers may also consider any history or prior claims and specific details of your policy, such as deductibles and coverage limits.
