The Importance of Business Insurance for Civil Engineering Contractors

As a civil engineer, you design things to help make people’s lives better, whether that’s giving us fresh water and purifying it for reuse, keeping us switched on and powered up by supplying gas and electricity to our homes, building roads, schools, or designing innovative ways to recycle our waste.

Your work can often come with a number of risks. An employee, colleague or member of the public could be injured as a result of negligence, you may incur costly delays in a project, or stock you supply may be faulty. And there’s always the danger that your plant and machinery could be subject to theft, malicious or accidental damage.

Dealing with liability and indemnity claims can be stressful, time-consuming, and expensive, which is why it is so important to have specialist protection in place that provides you with the right level of cover needed for the nature of the work you do.
