In the state of New Mexico, all drivers must have an auto liability policy in place and this includes your business-owned vehicles and anyone using a personal vehicle while doing work for your business. This type of insurance will cover anyone injured in a car accident and any property damage that occurs due to an accident.  

Also in New Mexico, you must carry a worker’s compensation insurance package for your employees if you employ three or more people, whether they are full or part-time employees. This type of coverage will help pay for the lost wages and medical bills of an employee who is injured on the job.

Your business owner’s insurance policy, as well as a general commercial insurance liability policy, will cover medical bills for anyone visiting your business who is injured or anyone that suffers injuries due to something connected with your business. Either one of these types of policies will also cover any customer property that is damaged by your business as well as any damages your business incurs due to a natural disaster, a fire, vandalism, or a theft incident.
