Small Business Insurance in Michigan
Get Business Insurance in Michigan
biBERK is trusted by many companies for business insurance in Michigan. We offer flexible policies to protect you from the many types of risk Michigan businesses face.
Michigan Workers' Compensation Insurance
This type of Michigan business insurance helps protect your company 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 in Michigan to suit your business.Workers' Compensationchevron_right
Michigan General Liability Insurance
Also known as commercial liability insurance, a general liability policy is a vital type of small business liability insurance in Michigan. It covers damages and legal costs associated with injury claims by customers and other people you don't employ (slip-and-fall accidents at your location are a good example), damage to other people's property that was caused by your business, and medical costs associated with these incidents. It also 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
Michigan 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. So, if your building is damaged by a severe storm, related expenses may be covered. 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
Michigan Professional Liability Insurance
Also known as errors and omissions (E&O) insurance, this type of business liability insurance that many Michigan companies need 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 instance, if you’re an accountant and your calculation error hurts your client financially and causes them to sue, you may be protected. Professional liability insurance should be considered if your business provides professional advice, offers a professional service, or has contractual requirements for the coverage.Professional Liabilitychevron_right
Michigan Umbrella Insurance
Every type of Michigan liability insurance for small businesses 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 Michigan Small Businesses?
In Michigan, every business with employees is required to carry workers’ compensation insurance. Even if you only have one employee (including yourself as the business owner), you’re still required to carry workers’ comp. You can receive substantial fines and criminal penalties if you’re required to have workers’ comp coverage but conduct business without it.
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.
What Does Small Business Liability Insurance in Michigan Cost?
The cost of small business liability insurance in Michigan depends on a number of factors, including industry, number of employees, and your amounts of payroll and revenue. Additionally, your claims history will influence your policy cost. Companies with fewer claims typically pay lower premiums.
