More About General Liability

Third Party General Liability provides cover to the contactor for their legal liability for damage to the property of others or for the bodily injury to a member of the public whilst carrying out the activities of the business described in the schedule of insurance arising out of their works, excluding personal injury where covered by Workman’s compensation (”COID”)
The Third Party General Liability policy does not, however, provide cover for damage to the works itself. The policy may provide cover for works that have been handed over but this would depend on the insurance arrangements made for the handed over property.

Third Party General Liability cover can be arranged on an annual basis or project specific for the full construction period plus any Defects Liability or Maintenance Period required in the contract.

The policy can be extended to provide indemnity to the principal for liability arising out of the contractors’ negligence (PI Cover). It can also be extended to cover sub-contractors if required.
