Most personal auto insurance policies will exclude business use of your personal auto. So the answer is you most likely will need a separate business auto policy if you are using your auto for business. There are a few exceptions to this. Some personal auto insurance policies do have a business use class that was intended for the accountant, lawyer, counsultant type who drives from client to client all day long. Or possibly even a real estate agent might find coverage on the personal auto policy. Each insurance company has different rules on what types of "business use" they will tolerate. The best thing to do is call your agent and discuss the possibilites with him/her. And I always recommend, the best place to be is an independent agent. Independant agents have access to several insurance companies and can shop your insurance for you to find the best fit for your needs.

Where can you purchase workman's compensation insurance?

If you are NOT an employee, but rather a business-owner -- who needs to provide coverage -- the answer to this depends on what state you are in. Some states, e.g., Ohio, are "exclusive fund" states. If you do not live in an "exclusive fund" state, there will still be a "state fund" in place. You can purchase your coverage there, or from any private carriers that offer WC coverage in your state. You should check with the agent/broker who handles the rest of your business insurance. It is extremely important that you deal with an "authorized insurer", meaning one that has the requisite authority to conduct business in the State(s) in which you do business and in which you must provide insurance. Because worker's compensation insurance serves the purpose of shielding your business from most individual liability for work-related claims, the failure to do business with an authorized insurer can leave your business individually exposed to worker injury claims. You should contact the Department of Insurance of your State for confirmation that the insurer that you are considering is authorized to transact worker's compensation insurance business.
