General Liability Insurance

Construction sites are an area where anything could occur. An act that seems innocent, such as leaving your toolbox at the wrong location, could cause a major headache for your company if you injure someone.

A General Liability policy can protect you against any claim by an outside party regarding injury or damage to their property. In these instances, your policy will cover your legal expenses as well as your cost to replace or remedy the situation up to the limits of liability.

Pennsylvania General Liability insurance may also be called Commercial General Liability (CGL) or “slip and fall” coverage.

Business Owner’s Policy

There are times when things don’t go according as planned when working in the construction field. It is possible that you won’t be able to complete your work in time if there are interruptions in the work, or if tools break.

BOPs can be tailored to meet the requirements of your business. It can be a practical and cost-effective way to protect yourself from the many risks that general contractors face.
