Berkshire Hathaway Specialty Insurance (BHSI) is expanding its construction casualty capabilities to include primary casualty insurance. The company now offers primary general liability, excess and umbrella coverage for wrap-ups, project-specific and practice policies.
According to Bill Sullivan, Vice President, construction, the new primary general liability capabilities rounds out BHSI’s casualty offerings for the construction industry. The company’s appetite spans construction risks of all sizes across many classes. Recently underwritten accounts range from new bridge, high speed rail and stadium projects, to a rolling wrap-up for a general contractor and a practice policy for a pipeline contractor.
BHSI’s new primary casualty offering is available with self-insured retentions starting at $15,000 and a suite of endorsements for a wide-range of individual needs. Like its excess coverage, BHSI’s primary casualty insurance can be customized for wrap-ups, projects and practices, and is accessible through local underwriters nationwide.
