Damage to someone’s property

Your ladder slips and crashes through a living room window. The general liability coverage in your insurance package would help pay for a replacement.

Accidents that hurt someone

A distracted homeowner trips over your extension cord, breaks their ankle and sues you. Your general liability coverage would also come into play here by helping to pay for medical costs and legal fees.

Workplace injuries

Your employee has to get medical care and cancel some jobs after they slip and cut their finger with a drill. Workers’ compensation coverage with business owner’s coverage can help cover medical bills and lost wages. Workers’ comp is usually required by law if you have employees.

Injuries and damage involving your business vehicles

You get into a fender bender with your work truck that was ruled your fault. Commercial auto coverage will help pay for the repairs and some of the rental costs, depending on the policy limits. This coverage is also usually required by law for business-owned vehicles.

Theft or damage to your tools

Motor failure puts your compressor out of commission. The tools and equipment insurance that is optional with your general liability coverage can help pay for replacement and repair costs.

A water pipe bursts in your office and floods the entire space. Property insurance can help with replacement or repair costs if your owned or leased property is damaged due to a covered event, such as fire, tornado or vandalism.
