Contractors Pollution Liability

An excavation contractor was ordered to pay $150,000 after its employee pierced an oil pipeline.

An excavation contractor was recently ordered to pay $150,000 after its employee pierced an oil pipeline resulting in the release of 250,000 liters of crude oil into surrounding areas.

When a contractor’s work creates pollution or disturbs an existing pollution condition, the contractor can be held liable for resulting damages including costly environmental cleanup. Most contractors do not realize that even if they are not working with hazardous chemicals, they still face pollution exposures that are typically not covered by a general liability policy.
