Common Types of Commercial Insurance

Business owners in the Monroe, CT area may have questions concerning what types of commercial insurance they need to protect their business and employees.  Fida Insurance Group has friendly professional agents available to discuss the three main types of commercial insurance which are:  property insurance, liability insurance, and workers’ compensation.  

Property commercial insurance is necessary to cover any buildings your company may own or lease.  This type of insurance will cover the buildings as well as your personal belongings and the personal property of others in case of damage or loss.  Not only is the actual company-owned or leased building(s) covered, but the company property is covered as well.  This could include but is not limited to tools, equipment, inventory, and furniture.  Having the right policy in place will help you in the event your business has to repair or replace any of the property or equipment due to a natural disaster like a hurricane, blizzard, lightning strike, hail storm.  This type of coverage also helps if the damage prevents you from reopening and helps to get the business up and running once the repair and replacements are made.  

Commercial liability insurance will protect your business from claims alleging bodily injury or property damage as well as possible libel and slander issues as well.  Liability insurance can help a business if its reputation is harmed due to slander, libel, malicious prosecution, or even wrongful eviction. 

Workers’ Compensation Insurance will protect your employees and your business from any work-related accidents that may occur on your property or while outperforming a service for a client.  Businesses in almost every state are required to carry this type of insurance to cover medical costs and loss of wages for workers who are hurt or become sick on the job.  

Fida Insurance Group can help you make sure your business is covered properly with property, liability, and workers’ compensation insurance.  Many clients will require proof of insurance before they will sign a contract for you to provide them with goods or perform services.  Start at our website to start looking for the right policy for your business.
