What You Need to Know About General Contractor Insurance
The types of contractor insurance you choose will depend on your business and the size of the project. You may need general liability insurance, workers’ compensation insurance, or even umbrella insurance.
- General Liability –this insurance type covers general claims, including bodily injury and property damage caused by your job or faulty product manufactured or provided by your company
- Workers’ Compensation – Workers’ compensation covers medical bills, lost earnings, and rehabilitation costs for employees who are injured or become ill while working. It also provides death benefits to the families of employees murdered on the job.
- Umbrella Insurance – Also known as personal liability insurance, umbrella insurance provides additional liability coverage beyond the limitations of your existing car, home, or other insurance. It pays out if you are at fault for injuries or property damage, and your other plans do not cover the costs.
