Rectification Coverage

Rectification Coverage

Definition

An element of coverage sometimes included in contractors professional liability (CPrL) insurance policies. Also referred to as "mitigation of damages" coverage in some forms, rectification coverage provides first-party insurance for the costs a contractor incurs in correcting a design defect that is discovered after the construction is put in place but before it actually results in a professional liability claim. With this coverage in place, a contractor has the funding to correct the error and keep the project moving without having to file a claim against the design professional and establish negligence.
