When It Comes To General Liability Insurance – We Get You Covered – AmeriAgency
It’s great being a contractor, but for all the wonderful things it’s associated with, contracting work also brings with it a lot of risks.
Roofers, for example, work at height. That means when an accident takes place, somebody could get hurt, or some part of the property will sustain damage, or both. When that happens, clients can file a claim against the contractor, who will have to pay for those claims eventually.
In some cases, those claims aren’t limited to injuries or direct property damage. If a contractor, for instance, has installed drywall or painted a home using materials that contain hazardous materials, the client could still sue for claims.
Also, the liability of a contractor does not end when the job is done. If the client sustains an injury or property damage which arises from the work that the contractor did for them months ago, that same contractor will likely have to compensate your client if and when he or she files a claim.
It’s a good thing that the risks mentioned above can be addressed by contractors with the help of construction general liability insurance.
If you’re a contractor, and you don’t have general liability coverage, better get a policy now before it’s too late. Any allegation by a third party that your contracting work has led to bodily harm or property damage will often end up with you, the contractor, paying for all those claims out of pocket. More often than not, such damage claims can hurt your bottom line and put your business in danger of ceasing operations.
It’s also worth keeping in mind that you could be the most careful contractor in the business, but you are not accident-proof. Accidents can happen to anyone, and you would do well to have liability insurance for contractors to ensure that you can deal with the financial costs of claims made against you without putting your entire business in danger of closing shop. Clients filing claims against you can be a major setback, but business general liability insurance can help your business survive it.
