WHAT TYPE OF COMMERCIAL INSURANCE DOES MY BUSINESS NEED?
Do you have a business in the Waco, TX area, or are you looking to start one? While your focus may be on profit and growth, please know, regardless of the type of business you have or are opening, insurance is crucial to your security and success. Here are some standard commercial coverages to consider, as well as information about various bonds.
Commercial General Liability
Commercial General Liability policies protect your company against lawsuits filed by customers, vendors, and competitors. Note that even once you have a commercial liability policy in place, it is vital that you reassess your coverage needs annually to make sure you are fully protected.
Commercial Auto Insurance
Commercial Auto Insurance coverage can be very important in protecting your business. It can protect your business from loss in the event one of your vehicles or a vehicle being used in your business is involved in an accident. When should you make the switch from a personal auto policy to a commercial auto policy if you have a small business? Ask Shivers & Associates today.
Professional liability is insurance that protects professionals such as accountants, lawyers, and physicians against negligence and other claims initiated by their clients. Professionals who have expertise in a specific area require this type of insurance because general liability insurance policies do not offer protection against claims arising out of business or professional practices such as negligence, malpractice, or misrepresentation.
Worker’s Compensation is a two-part coverage for a business. The first part of the coverage is insurance coverage that provides income and medical benefits to employees who have a work-related injury or illness. The second part of this coverage is Employer's liability insurance which can cover a business owner's costs related to a lawsuit resulting from an employee's work-related injury or illness. Without employer's liability insurance, you would have to pay for these legal costs out of pocket, which can get very expensive. Although Worker’s Compensation is not required in Texas it is highly recommended.
Commercial Umbrella / Excess Liability
Commercial umbrella insurance provides an extra layer of liability protection by covering costs that go beyond your underlying liability coverage limits. In other words, commercial umbrella insurance complements your other liability coverages by taking over when your other liability coverage limits have been exhausted.
Bid & Performance Bond
A Bid Bond most normally used for contractors is provided during the bidding process. It guarantees that you as the bidder will accept the project per the terms presented within the proposal. A Performance Bond is then issued once your bid is accepted. It ensures that you will meet all obligations listed within the contract, adhering to specified terms and conditions.
