There Is No Business Like Your Business


Running a business requires a significant investment. Business insurance helps protect that investment. Business insurance is insurance coverage that protects your business from potential risks that may occur such as an injured employee, a lawsuit, property damage, or a natural disaster. What type of insurance you need depends upon what type of business you own. Before deciding on insurance coverage, evaluate your business insurance needs carefully. Our insurance agency can help you with this. The saying is there is no business like show business, but there is no business like your business.

Insurance Requirements

State governments determine the insurance requirements for businesses in their state. Most state business requirements include workers’ compensation if the business has employees, unemployment insurance, and disability. If you have a business vehicle your state may require you to purchase commercial auto insurance. Also, if you relied on a financial lender to get your business started, they may require you carry various types of insurance to protect their investment including but not limited to:

  • Fire insurance
  • Flood insurance
  • Business interruption insurance
  • Life insurance
