Contractors’ insurance protects against the financial risks present at all stages of business operations.
Plainly said, the Maryland construction industry is not only risky but inherently dangerous. A business where a simple mishap can result in catastrophic property damage. Hazardous tools and equipment, smoldering heat, falling from elevated surfaces, and electric shock can leave a distracted worker with serious injuries or ongoing health issues. Furthermore, an unexpected third-party lawsuit due to such an incident can completely wipe out a small business without proper coverage, leaving its vulnerable owners in financial ruin. Having either inadequate or no insurance is an avoidable risk that is not worth taking.
A formidable commercial insurance package will safeguard your business assets against the common risks of normal business operations at all hours of the day.
Contractors of all trades are encouraged to visit their city, county, or state licensing authority to verify license and insurance prerequisites before the commencement of operations.
