Legal Risks in Sick Buildings


ISSN: 0263-2772

Publication date: 1 April 1992


Examines insurance issues which are likely to arise in the case of “sick buildings”, where many parties from building owner to employer to tenant could be held accountable for the problems of an equally wide range of sufferers. The regular classes of insurance include employee′s liability, public liability, professional indemnity, and latent and inherent defects, though it behoves insurance companies to make a firm commitment to addressing the problems of pollution and contamination.
