Keeping employees safe at work is a critical part of your business. Workers Compensation insurance gives you and your employees important protections in the event of an employee work related injury or illness. Workers Compensation is a state mandated program that can provide a safeguard from lost wages and medical treatment. It assures that an employee can get medical care and compensation for a portion of the income they lose while they are unable to work.
Commercial General Liability can prevent major financial losses if your business is sued or held legally responsible in the event of bodily injury or property damage. With the proper policy, you can have most medical expenses, attorney fees, settlements, and reimbursements covered. This policy can provide coverage for an injury that occurs on the business premises as well as injury caused by the business operations and products.
With a custom Property Insurance policy you can ensure that the building itself and the personal property of your business is protected from minor accidents or a major financial loss. It can provide coverage for fire, storms, explosions, burst pipes as well as theft and vandalism.
As the owner of a business, you are liable for the products you manufacture or sell. Product Liability Insurance provides protection against property damage and bodily injury that arises from a defect in your product.
A Business Owners Policy is a package policy created for small businesses. A BOP allows your business to create a customized insurance policy that combines Property and Commercial General Liability as well as additional coverages based on your specific needs.
To prevent losing your hard-earned revenue due to an auto accident, you’ll want to ensure that your vehicles, products, and drivers are insured in the event of property or vehicle damage, bodily injury, legal costs, and more. Commercial Auto Insurance will cover all vehicles used in conducting your business.
A Commercial Umbrella Policy will provide your business with additional coverage should a lawsuit or major accident exceed the limits of your existing, or underlying, General, Auto, or other business liability policy. This coverage will give you an extra layer of insurance to protect business assets.
Inland Marine Insurance covers products, equipment and materials when they are transported over land. The two most frequent causes of Inland Marine loss are cargo theft and collisions.

Premiums for insurance that replaces a portion of your employees income if they can’t work due to a non-work-related illness or injury can be paid for by the employer, employee or both. Purchasing this insurance as individual policies would be quite expensive. Group policies are much less expensive per covered employee.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), in 2017 59% of non-government workers had access to employer-provided life insurance.
