- Personal Injury – Liability insurance protects you against suits of claims of slander, invasion of privacy, trademark infringement, false arrest or wrongful eviction.
Who Needs Liability Insurance?
As a contractor you constantly have accidents happening on your job site. Every contractor should have the right amount of Contractor Liability Insurance to protect your company from problems that may occur.
Nowadays the cost of defending a lawsuit is often more than the suit itself. For most small business owners it is hard for them to absorb the financial hit they will take without adequate insurance coverage. The best way to make sure that you do not have to face this issue, it to carry enough liability insurance.
How Does Liability Insurance Work?
Under your General Liability Insurance policy, you will be responsible to pay any amount over your policy limit. So, if your company has a single occurrence limit of $1 million then if a suit and legal fees add up to $1.5 million then you, as the business owner, are responsible for paying the amount over $1 million.
Most companies that have a high risk of accidents have Commercial Umbrella Liability Insurance that will provide coverage over you normal liability insurance limits. With Umbrella Insurance you can also get coverage for other liabilities that your normal policies may not cover.
As a business owner, you can take a few steps in order to lower your insurance costs. Along with promoting workplace safety, contractors can have high product standards, proper reporting, proper company training, and speak to an experienced agent about other money saving tips.
