Contractors Pollution Liability

An excavation contractor was ordered to pay $150,000 after its employee pierced an oil pipeline

When a contractor’s work causes pollution or disturbs an existing pollution condition, the contractor can be held liable for resulting damages. Most contractors don’t realize that even if they are not working with hazardous chemicals, they still face pollution liability risks that are typically not covered by a general liability policy.

Contractors Pollution Liability Coverage can protect your clients from losses caused by hidden or unanticipated pollution conditions.
