Operating over/near the water, or in shipyards, is risky for your workers, for your business, and for you. Shipyards may be fully aware that marine insurance is needed, but do contractors working on vessels or in shipyards understand that they need marine insurance?

Not having the proper Federal Worker’s Compensation Insurance can potentially expose business owners to
1) Criminal Penalties including imprisonment;
2) Significant monetary claims from injured employees that will not be covered by State Act Worker’s Compensation Insurance
3) Significant Legal Fees not covered by insurance

What about the proper combination of Marine Liability coverages?
1) Marine General Liability versus the traditional General Liability
2) Ship Repairer’s Legal Liability
3) Traveling Workmen Coverage
4) Over-water Pollution Liability (absolute versus sudden and accidental)
5) Waterborne equipment coverage


Business Insurance is not simple – if you do it right!
