Workers' compensation insurance

Maine state law requires businesses with one or more employees, full-time or part-time, to carry workers’ compensation insurance. Independent contractors do not count as employees, but if those contractors employ subcontractors, the subcontractors must be covered by a workers’ comp policy. This policy covers medical bills for work injuries and illnesses.

Commercial auto insurance

All business-owned vehicles in Maine must be covered by commercial auto insurance. Though it's not required, personal vehicles driven for work purposes should be covered by hired and non-owned auto insurance, as personal auto policies usually exclude business use. It can be added to general liability insurance or a business owner's policy.

Maine's commercial auto insurance requirements are:

  • Bodily injury liability: $50,000 per person / $100,000 per accident
  • Property damage liability per accident: $25,000
  • Uninsured motorist coverage: $50,000 per person / $100,000 per accident
