It’s human nature that once you’ve come to agreement on a job, the impulse is to just sign the contract and get started on the job. We’d like to suggest you take a step back and read that contract carefully. Especially in the contracting business, the ins and outs of your contract can mean the difference is having a long-lived, successful business or leave your company completely exposed to liability issues, possibly for…forever.
Our insurance professionals can’t give you legal advise, but we are experienced in knowing whether the insurance policies you own cover the exposures you’re agreeing to take on in the contract.
Your lawyer is the best person to help you understand the contract, but don’t leave your insurance agent out of the loop. Even if your lawyer signs off on the contract, you may still be agreeing to assume liability that is not addressed in your insurance contracts and might be expensive to insure with additional coverage.
A good insurance agent works as a member of your team and the more you keep them involved, the better they can advise you.
