In Colorado, there are a lot of different types of commercial insurance that are helpful for businesses of every size, but only two of these insurance types are required. If you need commercial insurance for your business, contact us at Colling Insurance Services, Inc. in Lakewood, CO.
Workers’ Compensation Coverage
When you have any number of employees, even just one, you are required to have workers’ compensation insurance for those employees. If someone does work for your company, the state presumes them to be employees, and workers’ compensation insurance is required for them as well. With this insurance in place, employees who have an accident at work or contract certain illnesses there will have their resulting medical bills paid for by the policy. The policy can also pay them for their wages lost after having an accident or contracting a covered illness.
Commercial Auto Coverage
If your business owns a car, truck, or other vehicles, the state requires you to have a commercial auto insurance policy on that vehicle. There is a specific minimum amount required for covering the bodily injury liability for a single person who is injured in an accident that is your fault. There is a higher minimum amount required for the bodily injury liability for everyone in the accident. In addition, there is a set minimum required for the property damage liability for the accident.
There are other kinds of policies that you can add to your coverage that can benefit your business. These include insurance types like cyber insurance, business owners’ insurance, professional liability insurance and more.
