What are the common insurance types for carpenters in MA?

Discover different types of coverage for contractors and carpenters in Massachusetts to safeguard yourself, business and workers.

General Liability insurance

Construction sites can be hazardous and uncertain. Even minor accidents could cause major problems for your carpentry company.

Damage or injury to someone else’s property even by accident could lead to expensive costs and calls for compensation. General Liability is a good alternative for carpenters.

Also referred to as Commercial General Liability (CGL) or “slip and fall coverage”, this insurance can protect your business against bodily injury or property damage lawsuits from outside parties.  In these situations the policy will pay the legal costs and also your costs to repair or replace the problem up to the limits of liability.

Workers’ Compensation insurance

Workers’ Compensation insurance protects you against medical expenses and lawsuits that can arise from employee workplace injuries and illnesses. It could also pay lost wages as a result of the work injuries that an employee sustains.

Who may consider carpenters insurance in MA?

Many small-business owners are looking for ways to protect their businesses against liability claims.

  • Self – employed Contractors – Owning and operating your own business carries the risk of a variety of responsibilities.
  • Commercial Carpenters – Whether you work as an independent contractor for other businesses or employ a number of carpenters within your own business, a General Liability policy can safeguard your employees and business from third-party claims.
  • Contractors – It is not just carpenters who think about business insurance. Any contractor regardless of whether plumber, electrician or handyman can get General Liability insurance for their business.

What protection does carpenter insurance provide in MA?

General Liability insurance for contractors, which includes carpenters, provides coverage for claims and lawsuits that result from:

  • Injuries suffered by an unrelated third party
  • Damage caused to the property of an uninvolved third person

Importantly the General Liability insurance for carpenters employed by commercial companies will cover you regardless of whether the claim is valid or not. Baseless or false claims are equally costly to defend against as those which are valid. General Liability insurance can help prevent an unfounded allegation from destroying your carpentry business.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does carpenters insurance cover damage to your equipment and tools?

General Liability coverage is available if, while on the job you cause damage to equipment belonging to an uninvolved third company.
General Liability policies do not cover your tools or equipment. There may be specific policies specifically designed to protect them.

In Massachusetts, how much insurance will I need as carpenter?

Your insurance requirements depend on the type of projects you work on. For example, a carpenter who works on more costly and larger projects may require greater General Liability insurance because the risks of things going wrong are greater. Similarly, when your company is executing more projects than when you first began, you may want to think about increasing the amount of insurance.

As with any insurance, coverage will be subject to the terms, conditions and exclusions contained in the policy wording.
