If your business were held responsible for contaminating the environment (even for a small incidental occurrence), you could face large unexpected expenses not covered by your general liability policy.
Special coverage is now available to address the clean-up costs and associated legal expenses.
Pollution liability insurance protects you in two ways: when the pollution takes place on your property, or when you suffer losses resulting from pollution on somebody else’s property.
Even the most commonplace substances can be hazardous. If your everyday operations deal with materials that could be pollutants if released into the environment, pollution liability insurance is a useful and economically practical way of managing your risk.
