Case Study

Hurricane Sally struck the Gulf Coast in late September 2020. In its wake it left a trail of damage not only to homes and commercial business, but also to the bridges surrounding Pensacola, FL. One bridge in particular was heavily damaged when the barges broke away from their mooring and stuck the newly constructed bridge. The barges caused milllions of dollars in damages to the bridge and without the proper coverage the bride builder would be out a significant amount of money to pay for repairs to the bridge.

Maine General Liability Insurance is designed to provide coverage for damage to property or injury resulting in this type of incident. With the proper coverage amount the marine contractor would only pay a small deducible for the damages done to the barges and the bridge.
