Pollution & Environmental Liability Insurance
CGIS Offers Pollution Liability Coverage for Businesses
Pollution liability insurance protects and covers companies and small businesses in the event of bodily injury, property damage and cleanup costs as a result of the dispersal, release or escape of pollutants. No one likes to think their business could be responsible for releasing pollutants or doing environmental harm, but in the event of accidental pollution; environmental liability insurance is essential.
Environmental Liability Insurance can be divided into two main categories: First Party Coverage and Third Party Coverage.
First Party environmental liability coverage provides businesses with funding should they need to clean up after a spill or contamination. This kind of protection is necessary if your business uses any chemicals or hazardous waste that could potentially be leaked into the ground on your property. Essentially, first-party coverage funds required clean-up efforts. One of the main reasons that first party pollution and environmental liability coverage is so important is that when companies that cause environmental disasters go bankrupt, the victims can still be compensated.
Pollution can take place in many different forms. Oil & chemical spills, gas leaks, drinking water contamination, release of toxic fumes due to a fire, the list is endless. Environmental and business impact of a pollution claim are far reaching and have severe consequences from a Local, State and Federal regulatory standpoint, not to mention the litigation from other business owners adversely affected.
Third Party pollution and environmental liability coverage protects businesses from any allegations that a pollutant from your facility has been released and/or adversely affected others. If, for example, the pollution from your company were to contaminate the public water supply, your third party coverage would protect you from any resulting lawsuits and other costs such as evacuation and damages. Third-party pollution insurance coverage could also protect you if your product causes pollution while it’s being transported by a third party, such as a cargo ship.
