biBERK is trusted by many companies for business insurance in Missouri. We offer flexible business insurance policies to protect you from the various types of risk Missouri companies face.
Workers' Compensation Insurance in Missouri
Workers’ compensation 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 in Missouri to ensure your business and your workforce are properly covered. So if, for example, an employee falls off a ladder in your warehouse and breaks their arm, the resulting costs may be covered.Workers' Compensationchevron_right
Missouri General Liability Insurance
Also known as commercial liability insurance, a general liability policy is a critical type of small business insurance in Missouri. It covers damages and legal costs associated with injury claims to customers and other people you don't employ, 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. Let’s say someone who is visiting your business locations slips and falls in your lobby. The related costs may be covered. 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
Missouri Business Owners Policy (BOP)
Also called property & liability insurance, a business owners policy (BOP) combines general liability insurance (for claims 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, for example, a tornado breaks windows and damages property at your office, the cost 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 Ownerschevron_right
Missouri Professional Liability Insurance
Also known as errors and omissions (E&O) insurance, this policy 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). Professional liability insurance should be considered if your business provides professional advice, offers a professional service, or has contractual requirements for the coverage. Professional liability coverage can protect you if, for example, you’re a bookkeeper and you make a calculation error that harms your client’s business.Professional Liabilitychevron_right
Missouri Commercial Auto Insurance
If your company owns or leases vehicles, this policy protects your business. Missouri commercial auto insurance can cover your legal fees and the medical costs of others if your employee is at fault in an accident. It can protect you if, for example, your delivery driver runs a stop sign and causes an accident with property damage and injuries. It can pay the cost of damages even if the vehicle is used for personal activities outside of its primary business use.Commercial Autochevron_right
Missouri Cyber Insurance
This type of business insurance in Missouri can be purchased as an add-on to a general liability policy, professional liability policy, or business owners policy (BOP). 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
Missouri Umbrella Insurance
When buying business insurance in Missouri, 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
