Wisconsin is home to many highly successful companies, including Batteries Plus, HUSCO International, and QPS Employment Group. Naturally, not every business that opens its doors here in the Badger State will grow to be a multi-million dollar company, but it is small businesses that drive the local economy and keep many of Wisconsin’s residents employed. If you are the owner of one of this state’s many small businesses, you can protect your company from undue financial hardship by purchasing a comprehensive Wisconsin business insurance policy.
Regardless of the industry in which your business operates, you are likely to face potential problems that could cause your company to take a financial hit. For example, if you own a storefront business, and a customer is injured while shopping in your store, you may face liability charges for medical expenses. If you own a manufacturing company, and a customer is injured by a poorly made product, you might also find yourself on the wrong end of a lawsuit.
Depending on their industry, businesses face different potential risks. This is why there is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all commercial insurance policy. Trusted Choice® agents write more business policies than any other brand. These are independent agents, which means they can pick and choose individual coverage types from many different insurance companies. That way you get exactly the customized coverage you need, in exactly the right amounts, for the best possible price.
Manufacturing jobs continue to be the top source of employment in this state, despite the loss of some of these jobs during the recent recession. If your business model is strong and diverse, you will likely be able to keep your business afloat in Wisconsin, even in today’s difficult economy.
Businesses that hire employees are required to provide workers' compensation, disability and unemployment insurance. If your business operation requires the use of company cars or trucks, you will also need to have a commercial vehicle policy. Finally, if you have taken out a business loan, your lender may require you to carry a commercial insurance policy to protect your business from factors that may lead to bankruptcy.
In most cases, however, small businesses are not required to carry commercial insurance. However, simply because this coverage is not mandatory does not mean that it is not important. Just one unexpected mishap, such as severe damage from a fire or a lawsuit because of an injury, has the potential to cause enough financial damage to your business that you may find yourself forced to close your business for good.
You have invested a lot of time and money into your business. Business insurance will help you protect it, so that you can continue to prosper.
Commercial insurance policies are as varied as the businesses that rely on them. You can customize your policy to meet your company’s specific coverage needs. Some offered policy options include:
