In a detention agreement (also known as a compensation agreement), a party (the beneficiary of the compensation) agrees to pay for damages caused to another party (compensation) for liability in the event of injury or property damage resulting from the project. There are three basic types of capital-damage agreements that have different effects on a contractor`s liability insurance. Yes, yes. If you list a unit in your policy as an additional insured, they are also insured or protected by your policy. However, never insure someone else in your policy, unless absolutely necessary. If the additional insured is sued, the money your policy used to pay their claim could reduce your coverage.
Your policy, not the additional policyholders, will defend and pay the claim, and you have a registration of a right. This could lead to further difficulties in requesting panels or future insurance.

If you are currently following and reviewing the documents internally, we recommend that you work with legal and insurance experts to ensure that you are taking into account the thoughts of both parties. The issue of supplementary insurance status is a challenge. Many misunderstandings arise when the contracting parties add to each other`s insurance policies as additional insured. There is also the fierce struggle between insurers and compensation payers who want to limit the level of additional insurance coverage as part of their policies and to compensate them who want to maximize coverage in compensation policies. In addition, the interaction between supplementary insurance status and indemnification clauses, insurance requirements and other contractual provisions is unique and complex.
These complications have resulted in numerous hedging disputes and, as a result, a series of revisions to standard insurance forms and insurance supplements. However, litigation continues unabated and controversy and confusion over supplementary insurance status in primary and liability policies, compensation contracts and insurance certificates continue.
