Virtually every business has exposure to environmental issues; but did you know that these risks are excluded in standard Property and General Liability policies? Pollution/Environmental Liability policies provide coverage for an organization’s clean-up costs, for third-party bodily injury or for property damage, along with associated legal costs, due to pollution conditions arising from its operations.
Pollution liability extends beyond a leaking underground oil tank – there are many contaminants to consider, such as mold, lead, allergens and fumes. Coverage is available for gradual, sudden, accidental and, in some cases, known contaminants.
