General Liability

Program Description: 

Our general liability insurance covers accidental injuries to visitors on campus, as well as damage to property owned by visitors or other parties. It also covers the University from any allegations of personal injury, such as libel and slander. Exclusions and coverage limitations do apply.

Except as noted below, claims are administered by Sedgwick CMS, the University’s third party claims administration company, with oversight provided by the Office of Enterprise Risk Management.

For further information on the University’s general liability insurance, please contact Marje Lemmon at 203-432-0140 or

Claims are administered by the Office of Legal and Risk Affairs at YNHH, 203-688-2291.
