Business Insurance

Insuring Your Business Against Common Liabilities

A Business Owners Policy (BOP)1 is an amalgamation of insurance coverage into a single package. It typically covers commercial property, general liability, business income, and equipment breakdown, but can offer additional protection depending on the provider.

BOP Insurance is Ideal for Business Owners Who:

  • Operates business at a location other than their home
  • Have fewer than 100 employees
  • Produce less than $5 million in sales
  • Own property or equipment
  • Want to protect investments in their business

Through VensureHR’s workers’ compensation claim services, our team acts as a liaison between the injured employee, your company, the workers’ compensation carrier, and the medical care provider. This process ensures strong communication while reducing the potential for litigation.

Our goal is to assist the injured employee in making a full and timely recovery so they can get back to work through careful monitoring and processing of the claim. VensureHR is an advocate of introducing employees back into the workforce at a speed and level at which they are medically able to do so. Additionally, this approach improves your loss history, ultimately resulting in lower premium costs.

Defending Your Business from Common Liabilities

There are three common liability insurance options for businesses: general liability, errors and omissions, and industry-specific coverage. Explore the breakdown of the three and see which option might best suit your needs. 

General liability insurance can help cover expenses you are legally responsible for, including:

  • Lawsuits, investigations, and settlements
  • Medical damages, attorney fees, and injury damages
  • Abuse coverage for liability

Employee injuries, automotive coverage, and intentional acts are not usually covered under general liability insurance.

Errors and omissions (E&O) insurance2 protects you and your business from claims of negligent acts, errors, or omissions committed during business endeavors that result in a financial loss. Policies are typically written to cover common risks and exposures to a particular type of business and covers judgments, attorney fees, court costs and settlements up to the limits of the policy. E&O insurance is highly recommended for businesses that provide paid services, such as electricians, plumbers, HVAC installers, and sheet metal workers. These policies typically protect you (the business owner), your employees, and subcontractors.

Industry-specific insurance3 is tailored to all industries that require specialized coverage. For example, most industries that employ workers require workers’ compensation coverage; whereas an employer with no employees does not need workers’ compensation insurance. There are numerous considerations and requirements for industry-specific insurance, which is why it is important to ensure the company you choose offers the appropriate coverage your industry requires.
