    2. The Subcontractor shall procure and maintain at its own expense and from insurers acceptable to Contractor, such insurance policies as will fully protect Subcontractor, Contractor, and Owner from all claims for injuries or damages, including attorney’s fees, by whomever caused, arising out of the performance of the Subcontract work, whether before or after its completion. Subcontractor shall also maintain any other insurance required by the Prime Contract documents, and in any event shall maintain the following minimum coverage:

Attached to each certificate of insurance shall be a copy of the Additional Insured Endorsement that is part of the Subcontractor’s Commercial General Liability Policy. All such policies shall be primary over an and all collectible insurance, and shall provide that they will not be cancelled, allowed to expire, or restrictively modified without thirty (30) days’ prior written notice to Contractor. All insurance required to be procured and maintained must be procured from insurance companies approved by Quality Lawn Care & Landscape Management and authorized to do business in the State of New York.
