    • $50,000 in bodily injury liability coverage per accident
    • $25,000 in property damage liability coverage per accident

Businesses of all sizes can benefit from the protections of a business insurance policy.

  • Most low-risk businesses that have fewer than 100 employees and less than $1 million in annual revenues qualify for a business owners policy (BOP). These policies are the least expensive option, but only provide general liability insurance, commercial property insurance, and business interruption insurance.
  • Medium- and large-sized companies and high-risk small businesses need to get their coverage through a business insurance policy package. Buying coverage this way lets business owners choose from a wide variety of liability, property, and other commercial insurance products so they can build a policy that is customized to meet their company’s specific coverage needs.

If you own a company in Alabama, consult a local independent insurance agent for help finding the right coverage at the most affordable price.

If an employee is injured on the job or is diagnosed with occupational illnesses, workers’ compensation insurance can help by covering medical treatments, disability pay, and other related expenses.

In Alabama, if you have at least five employees, you must carry workers' compensation insurance. If your business is in the residential construction industry, you need to carry coverage regardless of the number of workers you have.

Policies may be purchased from a commercial insurance provider. With approval, qualified businesses have the option to self-insure.

Nearly all homeowners, renters, and business insurance policies exclude coverage for flood damage. Unfortunately, more than 400,000 properties in this state have a significant risk of sustaining flood damage over the next 30 years.

To be protected against financial losses related to this hazard, you can purchase flood insurance. Affordable policies are available through the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), a program administered by FEMA.

If your property is located in a flood zone and you are still paying on a mortgage, your lender will require you to carry flood insurance. Otherwise, this coverage is optional. When deciding whether or not to purchase a policy, consider that the average compensation per flood claim in Alabama is $32,100. Flood policies take 30 days to go into effect.

Although some landlords and rental agencies require their tenants to carry renters insurance, most do not, so this coverage is usually optional.

Renters insurance is designed to protect against financial losses related to property damage, theft, displacement, and liability lawsuits. You may be surprised to find out that this versatile coverage is very affordable.

In Alabama, the average renters insurance policy costs just $235 a year, or less than $20 a month. Talk to a local independent insurance agent to learn more about what renters coverage can do for you.

Umbrella insurance, or excess liability insurance, is secondary insurance coverage that can significantly boost the liability protections offered by the policies you already have.

Because the coverage offered by an umbrella insurance policy does not kick in unless your primary insurance coverage has been exhausted, these policies are usually very affordable.

Personal umbrella insurance policies are typically sold in million-dollar increments at a cost of about $200 to $300 a year for every million dollars in coverage purchased, and commercial umbrella insurance policies typically cost about $500 a year for every million dollars in coverage purchased.

If you are shopping for any kind of insurance, you probably have a lot of questions such as:
