Coverage Details

Great American is a strong, respected company committed to strategic growth within our established markets, as well as these new “Special Risks” opportunities.

As we work to best support our brokers, we have been evaluating our industry presence and will now consider coverage for “Special Risks” on a primary basis using our Premises Environmental Liability Insurance policy (PEL) for Bodily Injury, Property Damage, Clean-Up Costs, NODs and Contingent Transportation.

  • For scheduled Covered Locations
  • Up to a two-year policy term
  • On a case-by-case basis, additional coverage grants such as Business Interruption and First Party Transportation may be considered
  • Limited to locations within the US or Canada, no international risks at this time
  • Excess coverage over another environmental carrier’s primary pollution policy using Great American’s standard excess policy form or similar contract
  • Limits of liability up to $20 million per pollution condition/$40 million aggregate, exclusive of legal expense
  • Minimum self-insured retention: $100,000
  • Target minimum premium: $100,000 per policy
