Injury to a Contractor Working on Your Home.

Injury to a Contractor Working on Your Home.

The scenerio is you need a new roof put on your home. After 3 bids you choose and select one to replace your roof. The day comes to start the work, which will take 2 days to complete, with a crew of 8 worker’s.

As UNLUCK would have it, one of the worker’s falls off the roof and injures his neck & back. He cannot sue his employer, as that is 1st party injury and covered by worker’s compensation. But guess who is a 3rd party to this work and thus can be held liable – YOU!

This is why it is important to have a personal umbrella policy. This added layer of liability protection goes OVER your home owner insurance policy. This $1,000,000 of added protection would go a long way in protecting you in the above case.
