Contractors Liability Insurance is actually a form of Commercial General Liability (CGL)insurance tailored for the construction contractors market. CGL provides insurance for your company in the event you cause property damage and/or bodily injury to a third party. (i.e., your customer or an innocent third party) CGL comes in different forms with different coverage It is essential to match yours coverage needs with your work risk exposure. A good insurance professional can help you with this. NOTE Liability insurance does not cover poor workmanship, tools or injury to employees.
