Environmental Liability Insurance
Many businesses are exposed to some form of pollution or contaminant as part of a daily routine, whether it is known ahead of time or not. As a result, environmental liability insurance should be a serious consideration to protect your business from potential risks. At Gallant Risk & Insurance, Inc., our environmental liability department specializes in all forms of coverage and is knowledgeable about claims associated with them, including:
- Automobile pollution
- Contractor’s pollution
- Environmental consultants and contractors
- Hazardous waste haulers
- Lenders legal liability
- Manufacturers product pollution
- Products pollution
- Professional liability with pollution enhancements
- Site-specific pollution legal liability
- Storage tank liability
Independent contractors and similar companies can benefit from environmental insurance to cover mandatory cleanup requirements, claims of bodily injury or property damage and other associated legal expenses caused by pollutants or contamination. Pollution or contamination can happen suddenly by accident or it can be a gradual process. Environmental insurance provides protection to businesses if production of hazardous waste emission during business hours occurs, such as the oil business, mold remediation and radon, agribusiness, street and road paving, laboratories, construction, excavation, chemical plants, food processing, painting, landscaping, fuel storage, sewer and waste depositories and asbestos or lead abatement that results in toxic waste. If an accident occurs, this insurance policy can help cover your expenses for cleanup and court fees regarding injuries and damages sustained.
Protecting Your Assets
Many businesses are unknowingly exposed to pollutants and potentially hazardous materials. If you discover that toxic exposure has occurred at your business, it can result in property loss and liability arising from damages caused, even in cases when the area was previously found to be contaminant-free. Protect your company and employees from these risks with an environmental liability insurance policy.
