The construction industry provides a steady source of income for everyone involved, from land developers to day laborers. Like any great business, however, construction is not without its inherent risks. Luckily, insurance companies are aware of what those in construction face, and offer many types of construction insurance policies to protect from financial loss.
Most states require workers’ compensation to protect employees from on-the-job injuries. Depending where you live, there may be options available to lower your premium.
General liability is invaluable in the case of claims made by the general public. It covers their personal injuries and loss of property, as well as legal fees associated with claims related to advertising issues.
Professional liability, also known as errors and omissions, protects your company’s reputation. It covers claims of negligence and breach of contract by helping you pay to defend yourself in court.
Cyber insurance is becoming increasingly important in construction. This inexpensive policy protects software and data against hackers and other cyber attacks.
With so many types of policies available, you can feel safe knowing that your business is protected from unforeseen circumstances. Talk to your insurance agent to choose the combination of policies that best fits the construction projects you deal with most often.
