Workers’ Compensation

Workers’ compensation insurance, often called workers’ comp, is coverage that pays for the injuries and illnesses of employees who become sick or injured while they’re at work. This insurance is required for every company that has any number of employees. If someone does work for a business, the state presumes that they are an employee, even if the arrangement has not been made legal. 

Commercial Auto Coverage

Every vehicle in Colorado that is owned by a business must be covered by a commercial auto policy. In Colorado, there is a specific, set minimum amount that you must be covered for when it comes to bodily injury liability for a single person injured in an accident as well as another amount required for everyone injured in the accident as a whole. There is also a small amount required for property damage liability coverage. If you have a vehicle that is used to do work for the business but is not owned by it, there is a different policy type that is recommended. There is a policy type called hire and non-owned insurance that should be used to cover these vehicles.
