What Is Contractors Commercial Insurance?

Contractors commercial insurance is a term for a family of insurance policies that cover may aspects of a contracting business.

You could shop around for each individual element from different agents and insurers but that would burn up your valuable time and you almost certainly wouldn’t be able to get as good a rate, with discounts, as you’d get in a customized program from Aspen Agency.

What Does Contractors Commercial Insurance Include?

The core of Aspen’s contractors insurance program is Contractors General Liability (CGL) coverage.

This protects your business against potentially deadly losses for property damage, personal injury and other types of accident or failure that are alleged to be your fault.

It covers your defense costs as well as financial settlements and medical bills for which you’re held responsible.

Aspen’s custom program can also include other optional coverage including:

  • Workers comp insurance.
  • Truck and commercial vehicle insurance.
  • Umbrella/excess insurance, which adds to the scope and financial limits of a standard policy.

If you have other business-related insurance needs such as protection for your business premises, your tools and equipment, business disruption, disability, health care and more, we are your one-stop solution.

What Other Contractors Commercial Coverage Do I Need?

Contractors commercial insurance can be a challenge to inexperienced agents or contractors because there are so many additional protections that can be added as “endorsements” to your coverage or, sometimes, even separate policies.

For example:

  • Additional insured coverage — adding the name of someone else, such as a sub-contractor.
  • Labor law coverage — protection against allegations that you have infringed New York’s labor laws.
  • Third party and action over coverage — to protect against the costs of being drawn into a compensation claim by an employee of your client who has been on workers comp.
  • Primary and noncontributory coverage — which lays down the order in which policies are triggered to pay towards the same loss. A contractor might be required to be first in line — the primary contributor.
  • Waiver of subrogation coverage — where a contractor can limit the rights of the insurer to pursue recovery of money it has paid out for an insured claim.

Don’t worry if all this seems more than a little confusing. Aspen’s experts understand it perfectly and can answer your questions and explain what’s relevant if and when you want to know.
