How much will business insurance cost me?
The cost of business insurance will vary depending on the type you choose and how much coverage you need. The higher the limits and the riskier the business, the more your policy will be. Often times, a small business is able to be covered for just $500 per year, which makes it very affordable. As your business grows, there will likely be an increase in cost with some oversized businesses paying over $500,000 per year.
Is business insurance required by law?
Yes and no. Some business insurance is required by law. Any other business insurance options that are not required by law are optional to your small business in NY. Some required business insurance includes unemployment insurance, disability insurance, worker's compensation insurance, and professional liability insurance.
If you think you may need one of these coverage types, but are unsure of which one, call NY Small Business Insurance. We can help you!
Will business insurance cover a lawsuit?
Yes and no. Business insurance will cover a lawsuit if you have the appropriate amount of insurance and the correct liability insurance. If you purchase small business vehicle insurance only and someone sues your company for something other than an auto accident, no it will not be covered.
Often times, when companies are worried about a lawsuit, they will purchase an umbrella liability policy to ensure that they have the proper coverage.
