Types of OK business insurance

General Liability

This is the most common business insurance coverage, and nearly all businesses in Oklahoma should have it. It protects against third-party bodily injury and property damage, as well as personal and advertising injury.

Workers' Compensation

Businesses in Oklahoma are typically required to have workers' comp insurance if they have employees. Workers’ compensation insurance helps pay for expenses related to employees becoming injured or ill while working for you.

Business Owners Policy (BOP)

A BOP combines property and liability coverage into one easy-to-manage policy. It’s a great option for small to medium-sized businesses that rent or own commercial property, such as a storefront, warehouse or office building.

Professional Liability

Oklahoma businesses that offer professional services should consider this coverage. It protects businesses from claims of professional negligence, both actual or alleged, and helps pay for defense costs. It’s also known as errors and omissions insurance (E&O).

Cyber Insurance

This protects against incidents like data breaches and cyber attacks. It includes first-party and third-party protection for things like investigative services, data recovery and legal costs. Businesses that store or manage customer data, like credit card information, typically need this coverage.

How much does business insurance cost in Oklahoma?

The cost of an Oklahoma business insurance policy depends mostly on your profession. Businesses are typically rated on the risks and exposures that are common to their industry. High-risk professions, like general contractors and manufacturers, typically pay more for coverage.

Other factors that affect your rate include your business’s location, size and coverage needs. For example, a business located in a populated area like Oklahoma City can expect a different rate than a business located in a rural area like Stillwater.

Oklahoma business insurance requirements

Workers’ compensation is the only type of business insurance required by Oklahoma state law. Most businesses with one or more employees are required to carry workers’ comp and can get coverage through a private insurance carrier.

Some businesses, including independent contractors and certain agricultural and horticultural businesses, might not require coverage. Family businesses that employ five or fewer people, all of whom are relatives, might also be exempt. Learn more about workers’ compensation in Oklahoma.

While Oklahoma doesn’t legally require you to carry other types of coverage, like general liability or a BOP, many prospective clients and landlords do. These requirements typically appear in contracts that specify the coverage types and amounts you must carry before beginning work or leasing commercial property.
