Insurance policies to help cover unforeseen losses

Engineers and Construction Insurance in Australia | FD Beck Insurance Brokers

Insurance for engineers and construction business owners may help protect your business against financial loss.

As an engineer or a contractor, workers’ safety and the project’s success are your top priorities. But errors in design, technical advice or specification may lead to expensive civil liability claims against your business. Add the risk of confusing client instructions, and you can easily find yourself in a middle of a legal claim.

Learn how to lessen the threat of losing what you have built in the industry. FD Beck in Australia may be able to arrange coverage for professionals and business owners in the construction industry.

Insurance Cover for Construction Contractor or Engineer

Whether you’re independent contractors or business owners, you may need a cover as you provide your professional services. 

Professional Indemnity Insurance

Without PI insurance, you may be liable for the full costs of alleged negligence, errors, and omission in your projects. But with the right policies, you can reduce the stress of dealing with legal costs and other claim-related expenses.  

For instance, during work, one of the erected walls collapsed due to incorrect technical specification. Since it’s your job to check everything about the project, a client files a claim against your business alleging a failure to provide adequate professional services. If this were to happen, you can deal with the legal fees and claim for damages with professional indemnity insurance.  

Public Liability Insurance

In some cases, the contractor may be held liable for claims by third parties for injury or damage during the construction.

Legal claims filed by a third party can range from injury or loss of life along with property damage.

However, if you have public liability coverage in place, the policy will allow you to manage the financial consequences of such claims.  

Supplementary Construction Insurance Policy

Be prepared rather than suffer from the consequences of industry-specific claims. You may want to consider additional insurance for you and your business such as:

FAQs

In general, how much PI cover will ensure protection against risks?

A standard PI policy may range between $2,000,000 and $10,000,000. But to have the right policies, you should consider factors, including business size, the nature of projects, and / or contractual requirements. 

Do all contractors need professional indemnity cover?

For some projects, a PI cover may be a requirement stipulated in the contract. Make it a priority to check the contract to see if PI is required, what the minimum limit is and how many years you are required to have cover in place after the project is finished. If you need help with the insurance clause in your contract contact FD Beck Insurance Brokers.
