Required Commercial Insurance in California

Workers’ Compensation

This mainstay of businesses is required of all California businesses that have any number of employees. This includes employees who are part-time as well as full-time. This insurance coverage pays for the medical bills and lost wages that can be due to an employee after they have an injury while at work. Workplace injuries can be highly expensive for employers, so it’s important to have this coverage in place to protect the finances of the business. 

Commercial Auto Coverage

If a business in California owns a vehicle, that vehicle must be covered by a commercial auto policy. There are a few set minimum amounts for these policies, but they are extremely low when compared to other states. It’s a good idea to get more than the mandated minimums amounts. These amounts include a small amount for property damage liability to pay for someone else’s property if your driver causes an accident. In addition, there is a set minimum amount required for bodily injury liability for when one person has been injured in an accident caused by your driver. There is a higher amount required for all of the people who become injured in an accident that your driver causes. You can also add other coverage types, such as comprehensive coverage, to your policy to better protect your business.
