A Policy Customized to Your Business
Businesses can tailor their Business Owner’s Policy (BOP) to help meet their unique needs by adding coverage options, like:
- Pérdida de datos
- Ingresos comerciales para servicios públicos fuera de lugar
- Other specialized policies
A Business Owners’ Policy can be custom-made to fit industry specific businesses. This means it’s great for protecting your business no matter the size, especially small businesses.
BOP insurance for business owners is built to cover companies that generally face the same risks. Customizing your BOP Insurance is an important first step when insuring your business. Small business owners should do this from the beginning to protect against losses and damages early on.
What Is Included in a Business Owner's Policy?
A Business Owner’s Policy (BOP) bundles business property and liability insurance into one policy. This means it can help cover claims of bodily injury and property damage to your building, equipment or inventory.
Some coverages that are included in a BOP are:
Business property insurance, also called commercial property insurance, helps protect your owned or rented building, tools and the equipment you use to operate your business.
This helps protect your business and its assets in the event of a lawsuit for things like negligence, bodily injury, property damage, libel and slander.
Business Income Insurance, also known as business interruption coverage, helps replace your lost income if you can’t operate because of covered property damage. This includes damage from a fire, wind or theft.
Additional Coverages You Can Add to Your Business Owner’s Policy Insurance
There are additional coverages that you can add to your Business Owner’s Policy (BOP) to help tailor coverage to your specific needs. Some popular optional coverages that you can add to your Business Owner’s Policy (BOP) include:
Most state laws require you to carry this insurance to help cover lawsuits and compensate employees for expenses associated with work-related injuries or illnesses like medical bills, rehabilitation and lost wages.
Professional liability insurance helps protect you and your company if you’re found negligent in the professional services you provided to a client, even if you didn’t make a mistake.
Commercial auto insurance helps cover the cost of an auto accident if you or your employee is at fault. If you or your employees drive a vehicle for business reasons, having the right commercial vehicle insurance is important.
Data breach insurance, also known as cyber liability insurance, helps cover liability expenses from technology-related risks such as a data breach or cyberattack. If you collect, store, send or receive customer information, it’s important to protect against cyber risks.
What Is Not Covered Under a BOP Policy?
Although a Business Owner’s Policy (BOP) includes three essential types of business insurance, you may need additional coverage to make sure your business is fully protected. A BOP doesn’t include coverages like workers’ compensation, professional liability insurance, commercial auto insurance and data breach insurance. You can add these coverages on to your BOP as additional protection. You may be required to have certain types of insurance coverage depending on where your business is located, so be sure to check with your local laws.
