To help independent agents better meet the Workers Comp needs of their Marine accounts and other water-related risks, Empire Underwriters has expanded their offerings to cover the Longshore and Harbor Workers Compensation Act (USL&H). Empire’s new USL&H product provides coverage to a broad range of industry classes that perform work on, over or adjacent to water. These include Marine exposures, Marina operations, Commercial Boaters, and Fisherman as well as resort and recreational risks. Other risks include boat repair, artisan contractors and service and building contractors as well. The new product will also be open to coverage for risks that have previously had trouble obtaining coverage or have had claims frequency problems. “We are excited to partner with a national “A” rated carrier to provide specialty USL&H coverage to over 100 industry classes. We work with independent agents every day that are looking to expand their book of business. This partnership is just a small step towards providing a complete
package of offerings for our agents” said the Chief Operations Officer. Empire’s new USL&H program offers aggressive pricing options, along with sensitive rating plans and first dollar options with minimum premiums starting at $25,000 in most states. “We are actively appointing agents in every state to work with us to expand our USL&H program. When talking with our agents we recognize the need for a comprehensive program to cover those clients that require this type of coverage,” noted Senior Underwriter, Greg Brittain. Not only is Empire Underwriters expanding their Workers Comp offering to feature USL & H, they also offer Difficult to Insure, Hazardous and High Ex-Mod Workers Compensation, Alternative Workers Comp, General Liability, Builders Risk, High-Value Homeowners, and many more.
