Protecting Against Faulty Workmanship Claims

Recent Pennsylvania court decisions have virtually eliminated any insurance coverage under commercial general liability policies for claims brought against general contractors arising from the faulty workmanship of their subcontractors.

Jonathan A. Cass, partner with Cohen Seglias Pallas Greenhall & Furman, PC, recently co-authored an article titled "Protecting Against Faulty Workmanship Claims," that was published in the December 2010 issue of Construction Executive.

The article discusses how courts in certain states have eliminated insurance coverage for claims arising from the faulty workmanship of subcontractors, and explains how general contractors can use, as an alternative to insurance coverage, performance and maintenance bonds to provide protection against such faulty workmanship claims.
