A typical commercial general liability policy applies to property damage caused by an “occurrence.” While there is a standard insurance definition for an occurrence, it can be amended through a simple endorsement that changes your policy and your coverage.
Join risk management experts Hansel Rhee (Ice Miller LLP) and Brad Stammler (Leavitt Group) as they walk through a project case study examining the contract, job specs, insurance policy and endorsements.
You’ll gain an understanding of what may be hiding in the fine print and how your company could be at risk if you don’t make sure the coverage matches the contract specifications.
