Just as homeowners insurance protects a homeowner from the full cost of repairing unforeseen damage to a house,
commercial property insurance protects businesses against damage to their buildings and contents. In the event of
damage caused by fire or storm, for example, commercial property insurance can help repair or replace the buildings,
inventory, equipment, machinery, and other business property affected.
Commercial property owners, both those operating a business on their property and those leasing
property to another entity, can purchase policies that protect the building and associated structures.
A property owner's policy, however, will not protect tenants from loss. Business owners who lease
their property may buy policies that protect the building's contents, such as machinery, furniture and
stored or displayed merchandise.
Worker's compensation protects an employer from liability for an accident involving an employee.
This insurance pays benefits to your employees if they are injured on the job. Specifically, it covers their
medical bills, a portion of lost wages, vocational rehabilitation and death benefits.
Almost every state requires
by law that employers carry some form of worker's compensation insurance. Because the coverage amount is
established by state law, benefits do not vary from company to company within the same state. Employers are
protected by statute against other work injury liability, except in cases of extreme negligence.
Failure to carry it exposes the employer to pay what the insurer would have paid, plus severe fines, and possibly
jail time for violating the law. The benefits may amount to hundreds of thousands of dollars. The employer has a
legal duty to ensure that employees get the legally mandated benefits without delay.
