Frequently Asked Questions

Construction can be dangerous. Even if you’re doing everything right, your business might still be exposed. You should invest in the right coverage lines and risk control to help protect your business from financial losses and comply with regulations.

General liability insurance covers an array of third-party claims for bodily injury or property damage caused by your employees during construction. It’s usually best to combine that coverage with builders’ risk and contractors’ errors and omissions insurance to potentially address additional incidents such as design errors, structural damages, or natural disasters.

Depending on your company’s size and specialization, dedicated contractors’ pollution liability coverage may protect you from claims after environmental damages, either during transport or at the construction site.

Outside of these industry-specific incidents, you should follow general best practices in business and invest in workers’ compensation and commercial auto policies. That way, the expenses from accidents or lost wages may not affect your bottom line.

Construction insurance is just an umbrella term for a wide range of policies, so you’ll need to mix and match different options to reflect your unique business needs.

While it’s crucial to be aware of the potential losses that property damage can cause for your construction business, you should always view your operations holistically. That means accounting for every independent contractor, just like professional liability insurance does—not to mention more modern threats like cyberattacks.

The construction sector is certainly more prone to accidents than other industries, but even a natural disaster never translates to the need for flood insurance alone. It often comes with hidden problems and costs for you and your staff.

To ensure you’ve considered everything from vandalism to employee benefits, contact a Marsh McLennan Agency consultant.

Policies like professional liability, workers’ compensation, or commercial property insurance are common outside of construction, so the basic principles remain the same. That said, it’s crucial to consider the scope of damages unique to construction companies’ needs and find dedicated coverage options for the industry.

An insurance package that specifically reflects the liability and claim profile of a new construction project will account for the equipment involved, materials used, and special cases of liability. Industry-specific insurance will also help you follow regulations and include higher coverage limits for complex contractual relationships and high-value equipment.

A Marsh McLennan Agency consultant might find the right insurance package for your company with coverage that may be more comprehensive than a general-purpose policy. Thanks to our industry knowledge and experience with the needs of a construction company, it may be more cost-effective compared to the broad offerings on the market.

Outside of industry-specific coverage lines, you need an insurance partner familiar with the construction industry. We tailor a range of services to your needs.

Our Mental Health Toolkit offers specific assessments for the construction industry related to job site culture, employee communication, prevention and awareness, and more. We also provide solutions around prevailing wages to contribute to our clients’ competitive talent strategy.
