Contractors Professional Liability

Trends in the construction industry to create a collaborative construction team are increasingly exposing contractors to professional liability issues. Faulty design, construction management liabilities, and subcontracted design errors are just a few of the exposures that impact contractors and the construction industry today.

A contractor who is not adequately insured for professional liability exposures can experience severe hardship in the event a claim is made or a suit is filed.

Travelers offers contractors professional liability coverage on a claims-made basis to address this need.

Our specialized professional underwriters will work with your surplus lines broker to tailor professional insurance programs to stay in-synch with your needs. Coverage is provided on a surplus lines basis by St. Paul Surplus Lines Insurance Company through surplus lines brokers. Surplus lines insurers do not participate in State Guaranty Funds and thus insureds are not protected by such funds. The information on this page is provided for general informational purposes and does not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation.

For more information about Contractors Professional Liability coverage or other insurance coverage for the construction industry from Travelers, please contact an independent Construction insurance agent, broker or surplus lines broker.

For independent agent or broker inquiries, please contact us.
