Ways Contractor Liability Insurance Protection Eliminates Your AnxietyPublished November 28th 2018 at 1:49pm
Large construction projects are not only expensive but also high-stress. The stakeholders in large scale building jobs, such as, the owner, architect, contractors, subcontractors, suppliers, and builders all work within a specified time limit and on-budget. The longer it takes to implement the construction schedules, the higher the risk of complications and also the possibility for litigation. Hence, a contractor's liability insurance is an essential protection against costly legal disputes arising from inexcusable project delays, workforce bodily injuries, defective work, or unforeseeable factors.
But is the general liability coverage adequate? The answer is no!
Instead of construction companies assuming that they do not bear responsibility for substandard materials, unfavorable weather, or omissions by the designer and suppliers, they should seek watertight insurance programs to cover all types of risks including injuries, delays, and accidents. To seal any insurance loopholes, consider adding the following policies to your general contractors' liability coverage:
Supplementary Insurance for Contractors
Professional Liability Protection : This coverage will protect contractors when there is delegation of project management, design, electrical, or plumbing work to industry experts.

Commercial Auto Policy : A crucial insurance for the people who use personal cars to discharge construction-related business . In case of auto accidents or damage to property by your car, the commercial auto policy will cover the claims.
Disability Insurance : This policy caters for both the income as well as short- and long-term disabilities if you suffer injuries at work.
