What Does Commercial Insurance Cover?

Commercial insurance is a rather broad term and it includes many different things. As such, if you own a business, you will want to talk to an insurance specialist to determine what your commercial insurance needs are and what should and should not be covered in your plan. However, here are a few of the things that are typically covered by commercial insurance.


Commercial business insurance protects your business against theft. If someone steals product from you, your insurance company will pay you the amount of money you are out, less any deductible you may have if your store or business is burglarized.

Loss of Employee

Another aspect that commercial insurance covers is the loss of an employee. This typically relates to higher ups in a business but can be modified to include anyone important in your operations. If an employee has an unexpected event that causes them to be unable to work, such as a sudden medical condition not related to work, your business can be negatively impacted. The insurance helps you to cover the cost of bringing in someone else to take this employee’s position until the employee is able to return to work or a new employee is trained and up to speed.

Forced Business Closures

The last thing that commercial insurance covers is forced business closures. If your business is forced to close due to building renovations, a fire or other unexpected events, you may lose out on the money. Commercial insurance covers those losses so your business is not impacted.
