Common Business Insurance Questions In Acadiana
Louisiana is home to about 437,437 small businesses. Most businesses close within the first couple years due to monetary issues. It’s important to protect your company’s assets from every possibility. For instance, in Louisiana, flooding presents an especially heinous problem.
There are multiple types of business insurance policies. These can be tailored for specific industries or created for general company needs.
- Commercial Auto Insurance: This policy is geared to work for vehicles used or owned by the business. Personal auto insurance policies won't cover work-related accidents. Commercial auto insurance can cover a fleet of company vehicles or even personal vehicles used for the company. Also check that your commercial auto insurance policy includes non-owner coverage and rented vehicle coverage.
- General Liability Insurance: If someone is injured or property is damaged due to regular business operations, general liability insurance steps in to pay for the damages and possible legal fees.
- Workers Compensation Insurance: Businesses are generally required to carry workers compensation coverage. This pays medical fees and possible legal fees if an employee is injured at work. This isn't related to company-sponsored health insurance.
- Business Owner's Policies: This bundled package combines liability and property insurance coverages into one policy.
- Errors and Omissions Insurance: Also known as professional liability insurance, this coverage protects a business if the company makes a mistake that results in financial loss for their client.
- Property Damage: This covers the actual, physical structure of the business against such instances as fire, theft, vandalism and windstorms. This coverage doesn't often include flood insurance. Businesses in Louisiana should invest in a separate flood insurance policy.
Louisiana requires all businesses to carry workers compensation insurance and commercial auto insurance, if applicable. Businesses — no matter what size — should also invest in general liability, professional liability and cyber liability coverage.
Business insurance rates vary depending on a variety of factors. This includes the amount and type of insurance purchased, as well as the industry the business is in. You may pay as much as $5,000 a year or as little as $300 a year in general liability for a small business.
Though you may not be required to carry insurance for your LLC in Louisiana, insurance agencies recommend you carry some form of business insurance. If you have employees, you will need workers compensation insurance.
