Schinnerer Launches Railroad Protective Program

Posted on 23 Mar 11

To address the complex risks that businesses face that own, manage or work on property that has a railroad line running across or near it, Schinnerer announced has launched its Railroad Protective program.
Most standard general liability policies exclude liability coverage for construction operations within 50 feet of a railroad. “Schinnerer has created a program to address these businesses’ specific needs and give clients a coverage that fills in this gap,” said Gordon Field, Senior Vice President of the Railroad Protective program at Schinnerer. “Our long-standing professional liability and property & casualty insurance programs for the design and construction industry make offering the Railroad Protective coverage a natural fit.”
Schinnerer’s Railroad Protective program offers, coverage designed specifically for railroad related exposures, project specific coverage for individual projects or contracts, coverage for private grade crossings on private property and automatically includes terrorism coverage.
Railroad Protective is available in all states except New York and is offered through program insurer, Chartis.
