Riggers Liability Insurance

Riggers liability insurance protects contractors who specialize in lifting, moving, or installing equipment that belongs to others. Imagine a company using a crane to lift a heavy generator onto a building rooftop. Standard general liability insurance might not cover any damage to the generator itself if it falls. Riggers liability steps in to provide financial protection for the value of the equipment being moved in case of an accident during the process. This ensures the owner of the equipment, not the rigger, is not left financially responsible for any damages.
