Contractors' all risks (CAR)

What is Contractors' All Risks (CAR) Insurance?

Contractors all risks (CAR) insurance is an insurance policy that provides coverage
for property damage and third-party injury or damage claims, the two primary types of risks
on construction projects.
Damage to property can include improper construction of structures, damage that happens
during a renovation and damage to temporary work erected on-site. 
Third parties, including subcontractors, may also become injured while working at the
construction site. 
CAR insurance coverage is common for such construction projects as buildings, water tanks,
sewage treatment plans, flyovers and airports.

The goal of a CAR insurance policy is to ensure all parties are covered on a project, regardless of the type of damage to the property or who caused the damage.
