If you’re looking for business insurance Ohio companies can rely on, biBERK has a proven track record and the policies you need. We offer different coverage packages to protect you from the many types of risk your business faces.
Ohio General Liability Insurance
Also known as commercial liability insurance, a general liability policy 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. 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
Ohio Business Owners Policy
Also called property & liability insurance, a business owners policy (BOP) combines general liability insurance 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 Ownerschevron_right
Ohio 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 when 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 Liabilitychevron_right
Ohio Commercial Auto Insurance
If your company owns or leases vehicles, this policy protects your business. This type of insurance can provide coverage for your legal fees and the medical costs of others if your employee is at fault in an accident. It can cover the cost of damages even if the vehicle is used for personal activities outside of its primary business use.Commercial Autochevron_right
Ohio Cyber Insurance
This coverage can be purchased as an add-on to a general liability, professional liability, or BOP policy. It helps cover costs related to system hacks or data security breaches in which sensitive data like customer credit card information has been stolen and fraud has occurred or there is a reasonable expectation that it might occur.Cyber Insurancechevron_right
Ohio Umbrella Insurance
Every liability 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: it can cover costs that exceed the limit of another 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

Frequently Asked Questions About Small Business Insurance in Ohio
What types of small business insurance do I need in Ohio?keyboard_arrow_down
Every Ohio business is different, so we’re best able to answer that question after getting some information about your company. However, general liability insurance is needed if you have customers on your premises, and errors and omissions insurance is important for individuals or businesses that provide a professional service or advice. If you have assets like equipment and furniture, or if you own buildings, a business owners policy or BOP (also called property & liability insurance) is important. And if you have employees, you’ll need a workers’ compensation policy from a state agency.
