What It Covers

For more than 25 years, Chubb has been one of the top providers of insurance protection to the life sciences industry, worldwide. In fact, Chubb has a unit focused exclusively on it – one that continues to break through traditional boundaries with sophisticated insurance solutions that respond to its growing needs.

Addresses some potential gaps in insurance owing to the complex sequence of events and potentially long time frames between when a product is developed and when an insurance claim is filed. Provides blanket human clinical trials protection including medical expenses paid in connection with a human clinical trial. Workers’ Compensation / Employers’ Liability coverage is also available.

It can be customised to respond to losses resulting from the need to stop using a product due to the risk of future bodily injury or property damage.
