Helping General Contractors Transfer Risk And Minimize Exposure
In our litigious culture, litigation is almost a foregone conclusion. At some point in the life of every lucrative construction business, there will be a serious lawsuit. The most important thing you can do is to transfer risk and minimize exposure pre-emptively before you are in a lawsuit that can damage your business's bottom line.

Construction contract lawyers from our firm can help you understand your rights and options regarding indemnity and additional insured coverage.
Protecting Your Interests Through Indemnity And Additional Insured
Disputes happen. There is no way to avoid this reality completely, as even the most professional, conscientious and service-oriented general contractors will usually face some kind of major dispute at least in the course of a career. The important thing is to set up contracts with owners to make sure insurance is picking up the costs for problems that arise, and to make sure the subcontractors carry their share of the responsibility, as well.
Indemnity clauses are an important form of protection for general contractors against a wide range of claims, including workmanship claims, personal injury claims and other related claims. Additional insured provisions spell out the terms of additional insurance for both general contractors and subcontractors.
At Bowles & Verna LLP, indemnity and additional insured lawyers have a wealth of experience with indemnity clauses, additional insured clauses and other contractual provisions, helping protect general contractors against over-exposure to liability.
