Contracts and Additional Insureds – Do You Really Have Protection?

Posted by The ALS Group on Jun 23, 2020 12:19:46 PM

Recently, I came upon an interesting (albeit disturbing) example of how generic insurance obligation language in a contract left the Landlord without Additional Insured protection from their contractor.

In the case of Seven Up Realty vs AJ Greenwich Contracting, the contract that Seven Up had with Greenwich did not REQUIRE Greenwich to name Seven Up as an Additional Insured on their General Liability or Umbrella. Not only is this a requirement of coverage, but we suggest, that the actual form of Additional Insured endorsement be specified, especially if the Landlord is expecting Additional Insured coverage for ongoing AND completed operations. Nevertheless, whoever drafted and reviewed Seven Up’s contract did not incorporate this language.

Certificates of Insurance | Are You Covered? Maybe?

Posted by The ALS Group on May 28, 2012 1:44:00 PM

So you may have received a Certificate of Insurance (COI) from your vendor, and you feel comfortable that its employees now can be allowed on your building’s property. To you this may seem like they have given you a familiar card from Monopoly. With your supposed “get out of jail free” card, you allow vendors access to your building and allow contractors to perform work on your property. However, you may not be as “free” as you think.
