What is business insurance?

Business insurance (or commercial insurance) is made up of a variety of different types of coverage. Each business may require a unique combination of policies to cover their risk exposure. A restaurant, for example, might need liquor liability, general liability, commercial property, and worker’s compensation. A sole proprietor drywall installer, on the other hand, may need only general liability and commercial auto.

Most commercial insurance is voluntary but some may be required by law or contract. If you have employees, most states (including Minnesota) require you to carry worker’s compensation coverage. If you have a loan on any property, your lender will likely require proof of insurance to protect their financial interest.

There are many coverage options available, some designed for specific industries. It’s important to work with an experienced professional when deciding on your commercial insurance coverage.
