There are a wide range of contractor liability insurance options available with various coverage types including bodily injury, medical liability, personal injury, business liability, and other types of coverage. The contractor liability insurance that you select should be customized for your particular business and you should do research on what the policy covers before purchasing one.

Work with an insurance representative who can get you multiple quotes
