What Does Commercial Insurance for Contractors Cover?
Commercial insurance for contractors can provide coverage for various risks. Policies can generally be tailored to your business’s unique needs. Available options may include:
· General liability insurance—This may provide coverage if you are responsible for property damage or bodily injuries of others. It may help pay for the resulting medical expenses or legal fees.
· Completed operations liability insurance—This may provide coverage if a completed project causes property damage or an injury after a job is finished.
· Property insurance—This may cover your company’s physical assets (e.g., your building and furnishings) if they are damaged by covered perils, such as fire or storm damage. Other protections may be available for your specialized machinery or equipment if they are damaged by covered causes of loss.
· Commercial auto insurance—If your business owns, leases or operates vehicles, commercial auto insurance may provide coverage if an auto accident occurs or if a vehicle is damaged. This policy is separate from personal auto insurance.
· Builders risk insurance—This may provide financial protection for your supplies and building materials if they are damaged during a project that is under construction by a covered peril.
· Workers’ compensation—If your employee sustains a work-related injury or illness, workers’ compensation may help pay for medical expenses or provide wage replacement.
· Inland marine insurance—This may provide coverage while your business’s tools and equipment are being moved or transported over land.
Other coverages may be available to cover other exposures and liabilities. Your agent can discuss options, exclusions and limits.
