Learn about business insurance requirements and the most common policies for lawyers in Texas.
If you have a commercial lease, your property manager may require you to purchase general liability insurance. Commonly purchased by lawyers in Texas, general liability insurance can protect your business from expenses associated with common mishaps, such as client property damage and injuries.
State law in Texas doesn’t require any businesses to provide workers’ compensation insurance. If an employee is injured, however, this insurance will help your business cover medical bills and lost wages.
Businesses that own a vehicle must purchase commercial auto insurance and meet state requirements for auto liability coverage.
Texas lawyers most often buy these insurance policies. You may need some or all of these policies depending on the specifics of your business, such as the number of employees and requirements outlined in contracts and leases.
A small law firm might qualify for a business owner’s policy. This package helps your business save money by bundling commercial property insurance with general liability insurance at an affordable rate.
General liability insurance is the foundation of a lawyer’s business protection, with coverage that extends to client injuries, client property damage, and advertising injuries. Most commercial leases require you to have this coverage.
If you own a law firm in Texas, you are not required to carry workers’ compensation coverage – no matter how many employees you have. Workers’ comp will, however, help you pay the medical bills and lost wages of an injured employee, often saving a business money in the long run.
