What Kind of Florist Insurance Coverage Do You Need?
Workers’ Compensation Insurance.
Required in most states, workers’ comp covers flower shops that have employees, even if they are part-time. This type of policy covers medical bills and partial missed wages for employees who are injured on the job. It also helps pay legal costs if lawsuits are filed by injured employees.
Business Owner’s Policy (BOP).
A BOP is not required, but it is highly recommended for flower shop owners. This insurance combines commercial property with general liability insurance plus additional coverages in a single, cost-effective policy. Your building, inventory and equipment are covered in the event of damage or loss. Business interruptions due to unexpected events may be covered. Advertising claims and customer injuries are typically covered.
Other Types of Policies.
Some florists choose to obtain additional insurances to cover data breaches, damage to business-owned vehicles, professional liability and more. You may purchase additional insurance policies to cover any or all of these contingencies.
