Are the Contracts You’re Signing with Your Customers Putting Your Company at Risk?

National Pavement Expo 2020 and Conference
Saturday, February 1st, 2019 – 10:00AM – 11:30AM
Contractual Liability/Risk Transfer
Are the Contracts You’re Signing with Your Customers Putting Your Company at Risk?

The purpose of this session is to explain and clarify the various terms and conditions of contractual language that customers are asking their contract service vendors to sign. In many instances, some of those terms and conditions could present exposures to the contractor that would make them responsible for incidents etc. that may not even be related to their scope of work. Therefore, when a claim is made against the contractor, their insurance carrier is required to provide, at the very least, a defense for that claim and in some cases pay a judgement, even if their work had nothing to do with the incident. Unfortunately, the end result of this is more frequent claim activity and higher insurance costs.
