Understanding The Situation

What Business Insurance is Required in Colorado?

Colorado requires all companies to carry workers’ compensation insurance. This covers employees if they get hurt at work.

Specifically, workers’ comp pays for medical treatment of any work-related injury or illness. It also gives partial income replacement if an employee must miss work to recover. These quick benefits help injured staff get back on their feet.

By law, employers must pay 100% of workers’ compensation premiums in Colorado. This insurance protects both them and their workers. It ensures hurt employees promptly get covered care without having to sue the company. Workers’ comp also means owners avoid pricey legal claims.

The Allen Thomas Group helps Colorado businesses make sense of state rules. We then customize affordable workers’ compensation policies to legally cover business owners’ greatest asset – their people. Contact us to easily provide this essential protection.

Colorado requires employers with employees to carry workers’ compensation insurance as a requirement of doing business, covering medical costs and lost wages from work-related injuries or illnesses that arise as a result.

Additional coverage such as general liability or commercial property policies are highly recommended but not legally mandated for every business.

Depending on your industry, regulations or license agreements, additional insurance might be needed in order to meet legal obligations and comply with legal obligations.

General liability (CGL) coverage provides Colorado businesses with protection from third-party bodily injury, property damage and personal injury (libel/slander).

This coverage is especially essential in Colorado due to the potential winter-related incidents such as slip-and-falls on icy sidewalks or product liability claims for snow sports equipment injuries.

Liability insurance costs in Colorado vary significantly based on several factors:

Industry: High-risk industries like construction may pay more than office-based businesses for coverage, and Business Size: Larger organizations generally cost more for liability protection.

Risk Factors: Claims history, safety record and specific coverage choices all play a part in determining premiums for general liability insurance in Colorado.

On average, annual premiums can range between $400-$1,500 for small businesses with minimal risk factors.

Mid-sized businesses with moderate risk factors will typically pay between $1,500-$4,000 annually in insurance costs.

Expect to spend between $4,000-$10,000 for larger businesses with high risk factors. Keep in mind these are estimates; to get a tailored quote tailored specifically to your Colorado business and risk profile from The Allen Thomas Group is essential in order to secure appropriate coverage at a cost-effective price.
