When you own a Connecticut business, there may be certain commercial insurance policies that you are required to have. Not having the required insurance policies can lead to fines and fees that your business would be better without. These insurance policies also protect your business from a number of costs and lawsuits in the event of an accident. If you need commercial insurance in Connecticut, give us a call at Goodman Insurance Inc. in Shelton, CT to find out more.
Workers’ Compensation Coverage
If your business has any number of employees, even just one, you are required by law to have workers’ compensation insurance for them. Part-time and seasonal employees as well as regular, full-time workers are included in this mandate. Household employees who work 26 hours or more each week also have this stipulation. If they work less than this amount, they don’t have to be covered. This kind of insurance pays for the costs that result from an injury at work including lost wages and medical bills.
Commercial Auto Coverage
If your business owns a vehicle of any type, your business must have a commercial auto insurance policy on it. If the vehicle were to be in an accident that was the fault of you or your employee, this insurance policy pays for the ensuing medical bills as well as property damage costs. This policy must include a specific minimum amount of coverage for bodily injury for a single person injured and another amount for all of the parties injured in the accident. There is another amount required for the damage to the other person’s property. In addition, there is coverage mandated for underinsured and uninsured motorists with one amount needed for one person who was injured and another amount for all of those who were injured.
