Here are some common coverage types available through our Contractor Insurance program:

Commercial General Liability (CGL) – This is a primary coverage for many types of contractors and almost always an essential part of your commercial insurance package. The policy will protect an organization against liability claims for bodily injury (BI) and property damage (PD) arising out of business operations, premises, products, and completed ops.

Professional Liability (E&O) – Also called Errors & Omissions Insurance; this type of coverage is important for some types businesses as well. The policy protects a person or organization against liability claims arising from professional services rendered in your course of operations. This product is available when requested for contractors, but is not typical unless there is design work or controller programming being performed.

Commercial / Business Property (Tools, Equipment, Buildings, etc.) – The equipment you use on a daily basis for your work are important assets to have insured. You may also have office contents, tools, equipment, and other types of property to include in your coverage for a contractors insurance policy. We can help with that!

As a contractor, it’s important to obtain the insurance that is relevant to the type of work you are performing. Some types of contracting operations that we can protect with a policy include, but are not limited to:

Damages arising out of liability claims can be costly. We’ll arrange a policy that shields you and your company from various perils that could affect the well-being of your contracting business. Being held liable for a large 3rd party property or bodily injury loss can be devastating.

Terminology of Contractor Insurance

Sometimes the insurance for a contracting business may be referred to as “Subcontractor Insurance”. In essence, this is no different than the contractor insurance package that we offer – whether you are operating as a sub to a general, or forming your own business relationships directly with your clients. The same kinds of insurance are applicable and we almost always recommend Commercial General Liability (CGL) as the foundation for good risk management for contractors.

If you’re unable to find your class of business through our contractor insurance application, don’t hesitate to contact us to discuss potential coverage for your business operations.

If you’re an independent contractor working in the construction field, you’ve come to the right place! You can select and review the specific kinds of coverage you’ll need in order to obtain Independent Contractor Liability Insurance.

Working independently doesn’t necessarily mean that you don’t have employees. During your online application process we’ll ask to confirm if you have any personnel working under your company name or if you’re a one-man-show. Get a free quote today.

Construction Liability Insurance can refer to various forms of coverage in the insurance industry. If you’re working as a contractor in the construction field, this policy is for you!

Should you be looking for alternate forms of construction insurance such as materials and structural protection for the duration of a project then check out our Course of Construction / Builders Risk page for more information.

The term Contractual Liability references liability that one party has assumed on behalf of another by means of a contract. This is a form of coverage commonly included in commercial insurance policies.
