Premises Liability for Property Under Construction

US Assure’s premises liability insurance product offers protection for owners from exposures that arise out of vacant property ownership during construction, including the cost of events like slip and fall injuries. Residential and commercial owners need this coverage when undergoing new construction or remodeling at an unoccupied property or land where there is no existing property coverage already in place. The coverage will pay direct damage for medical aid to the injured party that arise out of negligence of the owner and defend the insured should a lawsuit arise.
 

Premises liability insurance for property owners is a separate, complementary policy to US Assure’s builders risk coverage insured by Zurich, and it does not take the place of the contractor’s commercial general liability policy.
