Every environmental claim is unique, as no two situations are exactly the same. Many times like most causes for an insurance claim, these incidents are random and completely unexpected. The environment is always surprising us, sometimes leading to damage or harmful and hazardous instances. Some factors that are involved in environmental claims include: Asbestos, Mold, Petroleum, Contamination, Silica, Lead, Oil, Fuel and more.
Common scenarios of environmental claims are pollutants infecting the water or soil, sometimes where people live, sometimes not. When harsh chemicals and contaminants enter the environment, it’s up to the contractors or companies to pay for the losses and damages. Or, when it comes to infrastructure, a company could have been careless and built the structure with mold in the drywall or have accidentally released asbestos while building. These situations are extremely dangerous for all involved and can further damage businesses and homes around the construction zone. When other people in the surrounding area have to change their life temporarily, an environmental claim can get help with the damages and costs.
The majority of people who file environmental claims are businesses. The reason being is that they are most at risk of harming the environment and releasing hazardous waste. The laws of environmental protection and limitations are always changing so it’s easy to have a mishap. This means that businesses are always at risk of performing a hazardous action. Environmental claims can help mitigate and cover the losses and damages for these companies.
