Third Party Liability

The effective risk transfer of third party risks is pivotal to those working in the construction sector. Significant losses arising from bodily injury and/or property damage claims can be devastating to contracting business, and as such it’s important that clients have access to comprehensive policy coverage in this very important area.

Through decades of experience working in the construction sector, Chase Underwriting have developed a Third Party Liability Policy which provides a concise operative clause as well as an extensive range of extensions to meet the demanding requirements of the industry.

The recent introduction of the automatic inclusion of Contractors Pollution Liability Extension (effective from 15 March 2015 for all new business and renewals) is one of many ways in which we strive to offer market leading coverage for our customers.

The Chase Underwriting Third Party Liability Policy offers “market leading” breadth of coverage for clients in the broader Construction and Engineering Industry.
