Some businesses require insur- ance that targets industry-specific challenges, but other types of in- surance address risks common to all businesses. Commercial property in- surance covers buildings, con- tents, inventory and equipment against physical loss or damage. It typically comes with "business income and extra expense cover- age," which compensates a busi- ness owner for the money that's lost while the business is closed because of an insured loss. Commercial general liabil- ity insurance protects a business from claims for bodily injury or property damage to customers and clients. It covers claims that result from a customer or visitor getting hurt on the business's property or from an employee damaging property at a client's home or business. Professional liability cov- erage, sometimes called "'errors and omissions" (E&O) insurance. can help businesses that deal with customers who potentially could claim that something the business or its employees did for them was done incorrectly and cost them money or caused them harm. Workers' compensation and employers liability cover- age is required of all New Mexico businesses -- with limited excep- tions that employ three or more workers: for the construction trades, no minimum number of employees applies.
