Texas is different from most other states because it doesn’t generally mandate workers’ compensation insurance. However, this coverage is still an appealing option for most business owners, as it can pay for medical costs and partial missed wages from a work-related injury or illness. Companies that contract with government entities are required to have coverage.
All business-owned vehicles in Texas must be covered by commercial auto insurance. Texas requires a minimum of $30,000 bodily injury liability per person, $60,000 bodily injury liability per accident, and $25,000 property damage liability per accident.
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.
