Colorado Construction Insurance Matters
Today’s construction companies and design professionals understand how vital it is to carry insurance. The most vital type of Colorado construction insurance is commercial general liability insurance, or CGL coverage. CGL coverage is a blanket coverage option that can be considered to include anything not specifically excluded from it. Contractor construction liability insurance coverage of this type typically does provide coverage for independent contractors or subcontractors. It provides coverage in the event of potential defects in completed works or projects. Structural failures and products liability are often included in a CGL policy.
Although this blanket Colorado construction insurance provides excellent coverage in theory, the extent and nature of coverage is often challenged in court. To protect your rights, you need strong construction attorneys that understand the sometimes complex challenges of construction liability insurance coverage.
