Businesses that use environmentally unsafe chemicals while in operation are liable and run the risk of a potential pollution lawsuit. A pollution liability insurance policy will provide coverage for claims against your business related to either the pollution of your property or harm caused to others.
Pollution Liability Insurance Coverage
This policy provides businesses coverage for costs associated with their pollution output including clean-up of contamination to soil, water, property, or air-borne contamination such as smoke and emissions. In most cases, the policy will cover the fees and damages caused by pollution previously.
Common coverage include:
- Legal fees
- Pollution clean-up
- Transfer of property
- Errors & omissions
Who Should Acquire A Policy?
Many businesses are liable for pollution related lawsuits without even realizing, such as hair salons or cleaners. Other common types of businesses who should acquire a policy include:
- Auto garages
- Landscaping Companies
