What Insurance Does a Contractor Need?
Appropriate insurance can help mitigate financial losses from accidents, injuries or property damage during business activities. It’s important for contractors to assess their insurance needs carefully and work with an experienced insurance agent to ensure they have adequate coverage.
If your business is held responsible for someone else’s losses, it can result in devastating financial damages. Your insurance agent may recommend purchasing coverages such as general liability insurance, professional liability insurance, commercial auto insurance, cyber liability insurance and commercial umbrella insurance to help protect your business.
