Employer’s Liability Insurance Coverage
Employer’s liability insurance (ELI) coverage is provided by the workers’ compensation policy for the insured, who is the employer, for liability to employees for work-related bodily injury. This covers death by accident or disease, other than liability imposed on the insured by a workers’ compensation law. Read on to understand more about what employer’s liability insurance can provide.
A claim in which a contract’s injured employee sues a third party, such as the project owner, can be covered by this policy. Such coverage would only be triggered if there is no contract of indemnity between the third-party (i.e. project owner) and the contractor.
Loss of Consortium
This covers a legal action brought by the injured worker’s spouse or family. Usually, the suit alleges loss of spousal services, including companionship.
Consequential Bodily Injury Suits
This covers a type of lawsuit where a family member of an injured employee alleges they suffered an injury, such as a heart attack or stroke, as a result of the employee’s injury.
