Case Study


A General Contractor (GC) was hired by a project owner to design and build a new building under one contract. Normally, an architect or engineer would carry the burden of the Professional Liability exposure given that they would have signed a contract directly with the project owner. However, this particular contract included professional services which the GC was subcontracting out to various other services.


Because of the increased exposure of professional services due to vicarious contractual professional liability, and the unique situation of the project, the correct coverage was necessary to protect each party invested in the project. Hickok & Boardman provides numerous options to cover a professional liability scenario such as this in the construction industry.
