Common Business and Commercial Insurance Questions:
What Is Commercial Insurance?
Commercial insurance is designed to help protect businesses of all sizes from risks that may threaten their operations, finances, assets (including employees) and reputation. There are various types of insurance policies that are considered commercial insurance. Additionally, there are typically higher limits of coverage involved in commercial policies, and the premiums are often higher.
What Are Common Lines of Commercial Coverage?
While every business’s insurance needs vary based on size, location, number of employees and industry, there are a few standard policies that most companies carry. This list includes the following:
Workers’ compensation insurance—Iowa requires employers that conduct work in the state to carry workers’ compensation insurance. This coverage can help employees who are injured or become ill due to a work-related incident receive replacement income, medical benefits and other financial assistance if they cannot work.
Commercial auto insurance—If your company has any vehicles, you will likely need to secure a commercial auto insurance policy to properly insure any fleet members or employees who are drivers for your organization.
General liability insurance—A typical general liability policy provides coverage for claims of bodily injury or other physical injuries, personal injury (libel or slander), advertising injury and property damage as a result of your products, premises or operations, and can be offered as a package policy with other coverages such as property, crime, automobile and more.
Professional liability insurance—This type of policy provides coverage if claims of negligence, misrepresentation or inaccurate advice are made against your business.
Keep in mind that this list is not exhaustive. Depending on your business and your industry, you may need to purchase additional insurance policies for proper coverage.
What Do Commercial Policies Cost?
How much you pay in commercial insurance premiums will vary. The cost of a commercial policy is generally based on numerous factors, including coverage limits desired, business size, industry, location and deductible amounts.
