Maximizing Recovery. Minimizing Risk.

Leveraging Opportunity

A Proven Advocate For Construction Industry Insurance Policyholders

Whether your company has paid substantial premiums to implement its own insurance program or agreed to perform work at a discounted amount in order to be enrolled in a project-specific policy, you and your company are right to expect that the insurer will protect you from losses or suits that might occur, whether during construction or years afterwards.

When for whatever reason the insurance company fails to fulfill its obligations, it is a significant setback that can leave your company without compensation for a significant loss or without a defense to protect your company in a lawsuit or without sufficient money offered to resolve that suit. Whatever the case may be, at whatever stage of the loss or lawsuit, you and your company still have options. With experienced attorneys on insurance recovery on your side, you can fight back against an unfair denial or delay in the payment of insurance benefits.

At McLeod Law Group, we have extensive experience representing insurance policyholders in construction industry insurance disputes. Our law firm represents home builders, contractors, subcontractors, design professionals, developers, owners and anyone who operates in the construction industry, whether such operations are taking place in California, Colorado or anywhere else throughout the Western United States.

We Know Your Industry

There is a lot that can go wrong in a construction project. From its design to its construction and through its sale and use, there is a myriad of insurance products designed to protect members of the construction industry in the event of loss or litigation. Construction industry insurance policies include a wide range of products, such as:

  • Commercial General Liability
  • Wrap-Up Programs
  • Builder’s Risk
  • Contractor’s Pollution Liability
  • Subguard Programs
  • Inland Marine
  • Professional Liability

These insurance products can cover a broad range of possible events, including:

  • Bodily injury claims
  • Property damage during construction
  • Floods, mold and contamination
  • Professional errors and omissions, whether for design professionals or those who provide design-build services
  • Property damage to buildings, vehicles, equipment, tools and more
  • Construction delays
  • Pollution claims
  • Construction defect

Our lawyers have worked extensively on behalf of members of virtually every segment of the construction industry. We are fluent in the language of the various types of construction industry insurance policies. We are knowledgeable with respect to their terms, conditions, limitations and, perhaps most importantly, how they are interpreted or viewed by courts and juries.

We will initially evaluate your coverage issue, scrutinizing all relevant documents to ascertain the strengths and weaknesses of your company’s potential coverage claims, so that we can together develop and implement a strategy to efficiently and effectively pursue your company’s rights and claims for coverage of the losses and lawsuits that inevitably occur during the construction process or years later.
