Insurance Policies for Virginia Small Businesses

Workers' Compensation Insurance

This insurance 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.

Property & Liability Insurance

Commonly referred to as a business owner's policy (BOP), it combines general liability insurance 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, such as the use of a temporary location.

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 when 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). Professional liability insurance should be considered if your business provides professional advice, offers a professional service, or has contractual requirements for the coverage.

General Liability Insurance

Also known as commercial liability insurance, a general liability policy is important, because general contractors and landlords often require a policy before they hire you. The policy covers damages and legal costs associated with injury claims to customers and other people you don't employ, damage to other people's property that was caused by your business, and medical costs associated with these incidents. It also covers libel, slander, and copyright infringement.

Umbrella Insurance

Every insurance policy you purchase has a maximum value that it will cover in the event of an incident. Umbrella insurance adds another layer of protection: it can cover costs that exceed the limit of another 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 policy to protect your company.

Commercial Auto Insurance

If your company owns or leases vehicles, this policy protects the vehicles and drivers from any damage incurred during the course of business. Our commercial auto insurance policies are offered through a Berkshire Hathaway subsidiary.

Cyber Insurance

This coverage can be purchased as an add-on to a general liability, professional liability, or BOP policy. It helps cover costs related to system hacks or data security breaches in which sensitive information has been stolen and fraud has occurred or there is a reasonable expectation that it might occur.

What Coverage is Required for Virginia Small Businesses?

Workers’ Compensation

In Virginia, every business with more than two employees is generally required to carry workers’ compensation insurance. This includes part-time, seasonal and temporary workers, minors, trainees, immigrants, and working family members. It also includes subcontractors, even if those subcontractors carry their own insurance. If you’re required to carry workers’ compensation and you’re caught doing business without a policy, you can receive substantial fines and criminal penalties.

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. Even if your customers, clients, or partners don’t require you to carry specific policies, it’s recommended that you carry policies to cover any part of your business that could be at risk. Financially protecting your company is one of the smartest business decisions you can make.

Special Considerations for Virginia

Many locations in Virginia are exposed to damages from a large hurricane. In 2003, Hurricane Isabel caused up to $2 billion dollars in damages. A property and liability policy is the only way to protect your business from the costs associated with hurricane damage.

What Does Business Insurance Cost in Virginia?

The cost of business insurance in Virginia depends on a number of factors, including industry, number of employees, and the amount of payroll. Additionally, your claims history will influence your policy cost. Companies with fewer claims typically pay lower premiums.
