Required Commercial Insurance in Florida

Workers’ Compensation Insurance

Workers’ compensation insurance is a policy that pays for certain expenses after an employee has an accident at work and becomes injured. The policy will pay for the injured party’s medical bills, so there should be no reason to sue you for the damages. The policy can also pay for the worker’s lost wages due to the injury. If your business has at least four employees, you are required to have this insurance coverage. The employees may be part or full-time. 

Commercial Auto Insurance

When you have a business vehicle, a vehicle the company owns, that vehicle must be insured with a commercial auto policy. There are specific coverage requirements for these policies to cover different expenses. A coverage amount is required for your property damage liability for property damage that happens during an accident, and another specific amount is mandated for personal injury protection to pay for your medical bills from injuries incurred in an accident. These amounts are tiny, however, and it’s generally advised to get more coverage than the state minimum. This will mean better coverage in case an accident is severe.
