Contractors General Liability Insurance
General Liability Insurance (GL) is an essential part of contractors insurance. The main purpose of Contractors General Liability Insurance is to protect the owners, operators, and employees of the company against covered lawsuits or claims, which could include the following; Liability from accidents, Contractual liability, Products made by the insured, Liability coverage for workers employed by the contractor, and other financial liabilities that result from accidents or other mishaps.
General liability insurance is often bundled with a variety of other coverages. The type of work performed will often determine the level or type of contractors' liability insurance needed.
Important to know: It is the general contractor's job to ensure that everyone working with them - or under them - is covered by liability insurance. The General Contractor must be sure that all subcontractors under them have General Liability Insurance.
Often times a contractor cannot set foot onto a project until they produce a “certificate of insurance”, showing that they have Contractors General Liability Insurance. As a result of this requirement, a contractor can be found in breach of their contract if they are unable to start the job on time because the certificate is not available. Our brokers can supply a certificate of insurance quickly and easily to ensure that you comply with all the project requirements.
The Right Insurance, at the Right Price
Cost control is concern for any savvy contractor. With a customized Contractors Insurance policy you are in control of the types and amount of coverage that makes for the best use of your hard-earned dollars. There are often also “insurance bundling” options, that allow you to save by combining your commercial auto, commercial property and liability policies.
