SDV attorneys spend a lot of time reviewing insurance policies for our construction industry clients. From analyzing policies that are meant to provide additional insured coverage to our general contractor clients, to parsing through OCIP and CCIP placements sent to us by our broker colleagues, we’ve seen it all. Sometimes coverage can be a scary thing, so in honor of Halloween, here is our “Top 10 List of Scariest Insurance Policy Terms” we’ve seen over the past year.

1. Complete bodily injury exclusions. Especially in markets where subcontractor insurance costs are high and profit margins are low, subcontractor policies contain bodily injury exclusions for employees at an alarming rate. Exclusions this broad can mean no coverage when an injured employee brings a claim against an additional insured, thereby exposing the additional insured’s corporate program to a loss which otherwise should be transferred downstream.
