When you are dealing with a defect in construction that leaves your home or other property damaged -- or causes bodily injury to someone on your property -- then you might need to understand how and when coverage is triggered for any associated claim. This is true whether you are seeking compensation for damages under an insurance policy or a construction contract guarantee.
