Learn More About Small Business Insurance From The Hartford
It’s “on-the-job” insurance for injured workers.
The idea behind workers’ compensation is simple. It’s a state-mandated, “no fault” insurance system that pays benefits to workers injured on the job. In return, employers generally receive immunity from civil lawsuits by employees over such workplace injuries.
Workers' compensation insurance coverage provides an injured employee with payments for:
  • Lost wages
  • Medical bills
  • Vocational rehabilitation
  • Partial disability
  • Death benefits
Health insurance is not a substitute when an employee gets hurt on the job, or has a work-related illness. Workers’ compensation provides primary coverage and only workers’ comp covers certain aspects of the injured worker’s claim. For example, health insurance does not cover employee’s lost pay, nor does it offer death or disability benefits.
Our latest research shows that small business owners view the insurance experience as a balancing act between purchasing coverage that’s just right for their business needs – i.e. not too much, not too little – and finding coverage at a price they can afford. With The Hartford, you can purchase the right amount of affordable coverage for your unique business needs.

The Hartford offers two insurance coverages critical to most small businesses: business property and business liability together in one policy, our Business Owner's Policy (BOP). This convenient policy can protect your business against fire, theft, lawsuits and more.

Key optional coverages most businesses consider adding are:
  • Income loss is the primary reason most businesses do not open after a serious loss
    55% of small businesses report not having business income insurance1
  • The median cost of downtime from a business affected by an extreme weather event is $3,000 a day2
  • This coverage provides income for ongoing expenses while your business recovers
  • Business Income for Off-Premises Utility Services can be added as optional coverage
  • Optional coverage includes $25,000 coverage limit and only a12-hour waiting period after a loss before the coverage kicks in
  • 1 out of every 3 data breaches investigated in 2012 happened to small businesses3
  • The average cost of a data breach was $188 per breached record in 20124
  • This endorsement includes access to resources to help prevent data breaches and specialized assistance to help if one occurs
