Get Small Business Insurance in North Carolina
biBERK is trusted by many companies for small business insurance in North Carolina. We offer flexible policies to protect you from the many types of risk North Carolina businesses face.
North Carolina Workers' Compensation Insurance
Workers' comp insurance in North Carolina helps protect your business if an employee is injured, contracts an illness, or dies as a result of an incident on the job. It can cover medical costs, legal fees, and lost wages due to the injury. We provide tailored workers’ comp insurance in North Carolina to suit your business.Workers' Compensationchevron_right
North Carolina General Liability Insurance
Also known as commercial liability insurance, a general liability policy is a vital type of business liability insurance in North Carolina. It covers damages and legal costs associated with injury claims to customers and other people you don't employ (like from slip-and-fall accidents at your business location), medical costs associated with these incidents, and damage to other people's property that was caused by your business. It also covers libel, slander, and copyright infringement. Plus, there are endorsements you can add to customize your policy, including cyber, hired and non-owned auto liability, employment-related practices liability, and employee benefits liability.General Liabilitychevron_right
North Carolina Business Owners Policy (BOP)
Also called property & liability insurance, a business owners policy (BOP) combines general liability insurance (for things like visitor injuries and customer property damage) with coverage for your company’s property. You'll get protection for the building you own, space you lease, and any property needed to run your business, while also receiving coverage for things like business interruption. This can replace lost income, as well as cover other costs associated with getting your business back up and running after suffering property damage, such as the use of a temporary location. You can also tailor your BOP with add-ons including cyber, hired and non-owned auto liability, employment-related practices liability, and employee benefits liability.Business Owners Policychevron_right
North Carolina Professional Liability Insurance
Also known as errors and omissions (E&O) insurance, this policy could protect you from the cost of damages and legal fees if someone claims your professional service caused financial harm to them or their business. Coverage includes both mistakes on the part of your business (errors) and the failure to perform a service (omissions). If you’re an insurance agent, for example, and you advise a customer to purchase the wrong policy, you may be protected if they suffer financial damages due to the coverage gap and they sue you. You should consider professional liability insurance if your business provides professional advice, offers a professional service, or has contractual requirements for the coverage.Professional Liabilitychevron_right
North Carolina Umbrella Insurance
Every small business insurance policy you purchase has a maximum value that it will cover in the event of an incident. North Carolina umbrella insurance adds another layer of protection, as it can cover costs that exceed the limit of another biBERK liability policy, subject to its own limit. Without it, you may be responsible for anything over your policy limit. Business liability suits can easily exceed the actual value of many small businesses, so we highly recommend an umbrella insurance in North Carolina to protect your company.Umbrella Insurancechevron_right

What Coverage is Required for North Carolina Small Businesses?
In North Carolina, every business with three or more employees is required to carry workers’ compensation insurance or qualify as self-insured employers for purposes of paying workers’ compensation benefits to their employees. You can receive substantial fines and criminal penalties if you’re required to have workers’ comp insurance in North Carolina or proof of self-insurance but don’t have coverage.
Other Policy Considerations
While the law may not state it, there’s a good chance you need to carry other business insurance policies in addition to workers’ comp. Many contracts require a general liability policy and/or a professional liability policy, for example. Even if your customers, clients, or partners don’t require you to carry specific small business insurance coverage, it’s recommended that you carry policies to cover any part of your business that could be at risk, including a property and liability policy if you’re located in an area that faces possible hurricane damage. Financially protecting your company is one of the smartest business decisions you can make.
What Does Business Insurance Cost in North Carolina?
The cost of business insurance in North Carolina depends on a number of factors, including industry, number of employees, and the amounts of payroll and revenue. Additionally, your claims history will influence your policy cost. Companies with fewer claims typically pay lower premiums.
