COMMERCIAL GENERAL LIABILITY EXPLAINED | CGL IN FILM PRODUCTION

COMMERCIAL GENERAL LIABILITY


Commercial General Liability (CGL) insurance is designed to protect the production company against sums that they may become legally obligated to pay as compensatory damages for bodily injury or property damage to third parties arising out of the production company's operations. It includes the cost of a lawyer to defend you.

This coverage will be required prior to filming on any city or provincial roadways, or any locations/sites requiring filming permits.

Coverage can be amended to include an international indemnification clause, which can provide indemnification for suits brought forth against the production company outside Canada or the USA.

There is limited or no coverage for claims arising out of the use of motor vehicles, aircraft, watercraft or snow machines under a Commercial General Liability policy. Your broker should be advised if you plan to use any of these types of machinery so that your coverage options can be explained to you. Coverage may require the purchase of an additional policy.
