Texas business insurance requirements

State laws can affect which business insurance coverage you need. These policies are required everywhere in Texas, from Houston to San Antonio.

Workers' compensation insurance

Texas law is different from most other states because it doesn’t generally mandate workers’ compensation insurance. However, this coverage is still recommended for most business owners. Companies that contract with government entities are required to have coverage.

Workers' comp helps pay for medical costs and partial missed wages from a work-related injury or illness. It also limits the employer's liability in the event of a workplace injury.

Blue check mark

Commercial auto insurance

All business-owned vehicles in Texas must be covered by commercial auto insurance. This policy covers the cost of accidents involving work vehicles.

Texas' minimum requirements for auto liability insurance are:

  • $30,000 bodily injury liability per person
  • $60,000 bodily injury liability per accident
  • $25,000 property damage liability per accident

Trucking companies may need additional coverage to comply with regulations.

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