LLC Insurance

Keep your personal assets separate from your business

Small business insurance

What is an LLC?

An LLC is a limited liability company, which is a business that is completely separate from your personal finances.

This means that the LLC forms a wall between the company and you, the business owner, protecting your personal assets from being negatively affected if someone sues the business or if someone gets hurt as a result of your work.

It’s more complicated to create an LLC than to simply run your business as a partnership or sole proprietorship, but there are real advantages to setting up an LLC.

Do I need business insurance if I have an LLC?

You might be wondering: do I need business insurance for my LLC? The short answer is yes.

One of the main benefits of forming an LLC is that your personal assets are more protected.

 

If a vendor slips and breaks their arm at your job site, your business could still be liable for covering the medical fees. If you don’t have liability insurance for your LLC, your business finances could be severely impacted.

A lawsuit could also put your business at risk. If you don’t have the proper insurance, you could be forced to pay out of pocket for legal defense costs even if you aren’t found liable.

The only way to cover your business against these types of scenarios is to get LLC business insurance.

What type of insurance does an LLC need?

To get the full advantages of having an LLC, it’s crucial to support your business with the right amounts and types of insurance. It can help to cover your business if there’s an accident, injury or mistake.
Here’s a guide to some of the most common types of business insurance for LLCs:
General Liability

General liability insurance for LLCs can help to provide financial protection if an accident occurs at your business, such as a customer injury or damage to someone’s property.

Bodily injury

Sometimes liability insurance is called “slip and fall insurance.” This is the part of your policy that would help protect your business if a client falls down the stairs at your office and breaks their arm.

Property damage

General liability also covers property damage to items that don’t belong to you. If you accidentally break a client’s window, your insurance will cover repair expenses up to your policy limit.
