Claims Scenario

A consultant hired to perform Phase I, II, and III site assessments was sent to an old industrial property. The consultant evaluated the property for contaminants and concluded that there was little to no contamination. After the property was sold to an investor, an old underground tank was found that required removal and remediation. The new property owner sued the consultant for expenses and damages.

Recent Success

In January 2022, a small wetlands consultant was beginning to start up operations.  Having left a larger firm, the insured was a sole proprietor looking to build an independent business using their professional expertise.  Operating in various locations throughout the mountain west, ALTA helped provide Environmental Professional Liability coverage for the consultant to begin their business.  The total account premium was $2,750 and the account was renewed in January 2023.
