What insurance do contractors need in Utah?

Utah contractors often take a look at various kinds of insurance. These policies might help you mitigate the common risks that general contractors face.

General Liability Insurance

On a construction site, anything can occur. An innocent action–like placing your toolbox in the wrong place–could result in an enormous problem for your company if someone is hurt because of the mistake you made.

Your 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. It can also be used to pay for repairs or replacing property damaged by damage, as well as paying medical costs.

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

Business Owner’s Policy

If you’re in the construction business, things don’t always run smoothly. The construction industry is prone to delays in projects, broken tools and other mishaps.

A Business Owner’s Policy (BOP) is a combination of policies, combining covers such as General Liability insurance and business personal property coverage, to help protect small businesses from costly interruptions to service. The BOP can be customized to include coverage options that fit the needs of your business. This is a cost-effective and efficient way to shield yourself from many of the risks that are common to general contractors.

Workers’ Compensation Insurance

If you depend on employees to run your company, it’s your responsibility to look after their health and well-being while they are at work.

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.

In Utah, with a limited exception, businesses must obtain Workers’ Compensation insurance.

What does contractor insurance cover in Utah?

Contractor’s insurance can cover your business for many kinds of risk. Based on the type of coverage that you select, events like:

  • Protection for Third-Party Injuries and Property Damage Claim (General Liability)
  • Unexpected Business Interruptions (Business Owner’s Policy)
  • Equipment breakdown (BOP)
  • Injuries and illnesses of employees at work (Workers’ Compensation)

How much does contractor insurance cost in UT?

Insurance companies take into account various aspects when determining the cost for every business. The cost for your company may depend on such things as:

  • The type of insurance you want
  • Size of your business (annual revenue)
  • The total number of people covered by the insurance policy
  • You claim history
  • Choose the level of coverage
