What insurance do carpenters need in Tennessee?

There are many types of insurance available for carpentry professionals in Tennessee which can safeguard you and your employees.

General Liability insurance

The field of construction is a risky and unpredictable. Even a minor accident could lead to grave implications for your carpentry business.

Injuring another person or damaging their property, even if you do it by accident, can leave you with expensive costs or demands to seek compensation. That’s why many carpenters consider General Liability insurance to protect their business.

Also referred to as Commercial General Liability (CGL) or “slip and fall coverage”, this insurance can protect your business against bodily injury or property damage lawsuits from outside parties. When this occurs the policy will pay the legal expenses and the cost to replace the item or remedy the issue.

Workers’ Compensation insurance

Workers’ Compensation insurance protects your company and its employees. If any of your employees get injured at work or are ill, this type of insurance will cover their medical bills. It will also cover some of their lost income if they’re unable to work because of the injury, as well as rehabilitation or physical therapy to transition the employee back into the workplace.

Workers’ comp is required for construction businesses in Tennessee even if they have one or more employees.

awsom service, perfect price and great policy
I have purchased General Liability Insurance for the past 4 years at BizInsure for my wedding videography small business. In these 4 years, it has always been a smooth process.There must've been some sort of technical issue (potentially due to my change in address), so my policy didn't auto-renew. I called Bizinsure and talked to Paulina, who was beyond helpful. She was very polite and explained things very well. One small detail that I can appreciate is that she often said my name, which shows that their customer service is intentional about personalized communication.In just a few minutes, we updated my account + renewed my insurance for a 5th year. I highly recommend Bizinsure!
