As an independent contractor, you may be wondering what kind of insurance you need to protect yourself financially. The answer will depend on the type of work you do – for example, whether you work at a desk performing data entry or digital marketing services, you work on other people’s property providing home maintenance, or you offer construction services.
General contractors, specialized contractors, homebuilders, remodelers, and even carpenters need to minimize exposure to risk with construction insurance customized to the hazards of the profession. The right blend of coverage can help you limit your financial risks due to jobsite injuries, equipment damage or vehicle accidents may occur during the course of your construction project.
