Virginia Workers' Compensation Insurance
This insurance helps protect your business if an employee is injured, contracts an illness, or dies as a result of an incident on the job. It can cover medical costs, legal fees, and lost wages due to the injury. We offer tailored workers’ comp insurance in Virginia to suit your business.Workers' Compensationchevron_right
Virginia General Liability Insurance
Also known as commercial liability insurance, general liability insurance in Virginia is essential coverage. It covers damages and legal and medical costs associated with injury claims to customers and other people who aren’t your employees. A common example of an injury to a non-employee is a slip-and-fall accident at your business location. General liability insurance also covers damage to other people's property that was caused by your business. In addition, it covers libel, slander, and copyright infringement. Plus, there are endorsements you can add to customize your policy, including cyber, hired and non-owned auto liability, employment-related practices liability, and employee benefits liability.General Liabilitychevron_right
Virginia Business Owners Policy (BOP)
Also called property & liability insurance, a business owners policy (BOP) combines general liability insurance (for things like non-employee injuries and customer property damage) with coverage for your company’s property. You'll get protection for the building you own, space you lease, and any property needed to run your business, while also receiving coverage for things like business interruption. This can replace lost income, as well as cover other costs associated with getting your business back up and running after suffering property damage, such as the use of a temporary location. You can also tailor your BOP with add-ons including cyber, hired and non-owned auto liability, employment-related practices liability, and employee benefits liability.Business Owners Policychevron_right
Virginia Professional Liability Insurance
Also known as errors and omissions (E&O) insurance, this type of liability insurance in Virginia could protect you from the cost of damages and legal fees if someone claims your professional service caused financial harm to them or their business. Coverage includes both mistakes on the part of your business (errors) and the failure to perform a service (omissions). For example, if you’re a home inspector and you fail to complete a standard part of an inspection and the buyer suffers financial damages as a result, you may be covered if they sue you. You should consider professional liability insurance if your business provides professional advice, offers a professional service, or has contractual requirements for the coverage.Professional Liabilitychevron_right
Virginia Umbrella Insurance
This type of business insurance in Virginia can be purchased as an add-on to a BOP, general liability, or professional liability policy. It helps cover costs related to system hacks or data security breaches in which sensitive information like credit card data has been stolen and fraud has occurred or there is a reasonable expectation that it might occur.Cyber Insurancechevron_right
Virginia Umbrella Insurance
When buying business insurance in Virginia, every insurance policy you purchase has a maximum value that it will cover in the event of an incident. Umbrella insurance adds another layer of protection, as it can cover costs that exceed the limit of another biBERK liability policy, subject to its own limit. Without it, you may be responsible for anything over your policy limit. Business liability suits can easily exceed the actual value of many small businesses, so we highly recommend an umbrella policy to protect your company.Umbrella Insurancechevron_right

What Coverage is Required for Virginia Small Businesses?
Every business with more than two employees is generally required to carry Virginia workers’ comp insurance. This includes part-time, seasonal and temporary workers, minors, trainees, immigrants, and working family members. It also includes subcontractors, even if those subcontractors carry their own insurance. You can receive substantial fines and criminal penalties if you’re required to have workers’ comp insurance in Virginia but don’t carry it.
Special Considerations for Virginia
Many locations in Virginia are exposed to damages from a large hurricane. In 2003, Hurricane Isabel caused up to $2 billion dollars in damages. A business owners policy is the only way to protect your business from the costs associated with hurricane damage.
Other Policy Considerations
While the law may not state it, there’s a good chance you need to carry other business insurance policies in addition to workers’ comp. Many contracts require a general liability policy and/or a professional liability policy, for example. Even if your customers, clients, or partners don’t require you to carry specific policies, it’s recommended that you carry policies to cover any part of your business that could be at risk. Financially protecting your company is one of the smartest business decisions you can make.
