What Does Contractors Insurance Cover?
Basic contractors insurance generally includes general liability insurance. This insurance covers accidents of bodily injury and property damage another person may suffer as a result of everyday activities by the contractor. For example, if a client trips over a cord to your power saw and gets injured, this insurance will pay for their medical bills and protect you against a lawsuit concerning the injury.
Other coverages we offer contractors include:
Equipment Coverage - Contracting work often requires expensive machinery and equipment. Equipment coverage can help you repair or replace your work equipment in case of a fire, theft, vandalism and more. Coverage for the contractor equipment is also known as Inland Marine.
Professional Liability Insurance - Also known as Errors and Omissions Insurance (E&O Insurance), professional liability covers expenses and lawsuits related to an accident in which a contractor causes their client to lose money. For example, if the contractor fails to properly secure pipes in the bathroom after renovation and a pipe bursts, causing thousands of dollars in damage, professional liability insurance will help with the expenses.
Contractors Pollution Liability - Contractors pollution liability provides protection against lawsuits because of an accidental spill or leakage of a pollutant. It will typically also provide generous clean-up as emergency response, to minimize the potential liability the contractor may face.
Inland Marine - Inland marine insurance provides coverage for materials and equipment that are mobile in nature. Examples could be equipment being transported or at the job site, or materials in temporary storage waiting to be installed at the job site.
Commercial Auto Insurance - Commercial auto insurance covers your work vehicles with a range of coverages to protect you, the vehicle, your passengers and others on the road. If you own or use a vehicle for work purposes, you will need commercial auto insurance.
Workers Compensation - Workers compensation steps in if your employees are injured on the job. It can help pay for their medical bills as well as protect you against a lawsuit.
Bonds - There are many different bonds available for contractors, some of which may even be required by clients with large projects. Be sure to ask what bond you may need before taking on a new project.
Commercial Property Insurance - Commercial property insurance covers your business physical property in case of loss or damage due to fire, wind, hail, theft, vandalism and more.
