In Colorado, there are certain types of insurance policies that are required for business owners to have. If you don’t have the insurance you need for your business, or you want more, call us in Wheat Ridge, CO to talk to a CO Insurance Specialist.
Workers’ Compensation Coverage
In Colorado businesses, it is required to have a workers’ compensation policy for your employees. No matter how many employees you have, even if it’s just one, this insurance has to be in place. And, if you have someone who performs work for your business, the state presumes that they are an employee and subject to workers’ compensation coverage.
Commercial Auto Coverage
If your business owns a vehicle, it is required that it have a commercial auto insurance policy. The policy has mandatory minimums for the amount of bodily injury liability you have for one person hurt in an accident. It must have another minimum coverage amount for everyone who is injured. It also must have a specific minimum for property damage liability that comes from an accident.
If you use your personal car for business tasks, a personal auto insurance policy likely won’t payout for an accident that happens when it is driven for business purposes. There’s a different type of insurance for those cars called non-owned and hired insurance.
Optional Insurance for Small Businesses
While these policies are required for small businesses, there are many other types of coverage that are optional. This includes a business owner’s policy, general liability coverage, and cyber liability insurance. Professional liability insurance is highly needed for certain types of businesses.
