Understand Business Insurance, Business Insurance Coverage, and How Business Insurance Works 

Is your business in need of protection? Maybe you fear the unknown with your business. Perhaps you feel you are not paying for the right commercial insurance. 

That is why it is important to understand what business insurance is, what business insurance covers, and how business insurance can cover your business in the event of an accident or loss. 

Understanding your insurance policy is our biggest concern at LKA Insurance. We want you to succeed within your business matters stress-free by knowing your business is covered by commercial insurance. 

 What is business insurance? 

Business insurance, also known as commercial insurance, is your business's way of keeping your company financially safe from unpredictable accidents. 

Every business operates differently, and that is why commercial insurance is tailored to every individual company. Regardless, business insurance protects your business from hefty financial losses. 

How does commercial insurance tailor to my business? 

All commercial insurance policies are tailored to each specific business. Aspects include the size of your company, the number of workers you employ, different types of material you utilize, ownership of business vehicles (if applicable), and other factors that determine specific coverage options. These coverage options support your business to protect your company’s financial assets. 

What does business insurance cover?

Business insurance covers a variety of commercial operations including: 

  • General Liability Insurance
  • Professional Liability and Malpractice Insurance
  • Product Liability Insurance
  • Property Insurance
  • Commercial Vehicle Insurance
  • Workers’ Compensation
  • Loss of Income
  • Key Person Insurance
  • Cybercrime Insurance
  • Records Retention Policies
  • Specialty Coverage

Business insurance covers liability claims from injuries from other people; loss due to negligent and wrongful acts that lead to another person’s loss or injury—damaged products or illness or death that may occur from a faulty product. It also covers losses of physical business property due to a natural disaster, vehicle collisions and vehicle property damages, employee injuries on the job, and more. 

How does Business Insurance Work?

 At LKA Insurance, we promise to provide financial protection to your business in the event of a specified loss. We organize your business details to ensure that any potential losses are covered within your business insurance policy. 

In the event of a loss, you would file a claim with us based on your policy agreement. An adjuster would then assess the damages and process the claim with LKA Insurance. Your business will then be reimbursed for the appropriate amount of funds for the loss, less any deductible. 

Processed claims have different factors, including the size, if it can be settled with an insurance payment, or if it needs to be handled with a lawsuit. 

How much does business insurance cost? 

The cost of business insurance depends on multiple factors. It all comes down to your business and the correct coverage option that is best for you for that specific commercial operation. 

On average, most business insurance coverages are $200 per month. However, the size of your business and the physical location play a significant role in your monthly premium. 

The best way to lower your commercial insurance premium is by practicing effective risk management within your business. We promise to give you affordable, effective, and reliable commercial insurance for all of your needs by using LKA Insurance.
