Common Sense Claims Resolutions: Merchants' Experts Work to Avoid Contractor Default

Contract surety bonds provide financial security and construction assurance on building and construction projects. Typical claimants include bond obligees, such as project owners and general contractors, and various third parties, such as subcontractors, suppliers and other vendors, that provide labor and materials to such projects.

Merchants' contract underwriting team serves all 50 states and writes various types of contract bonds. Because requirements for a valid claim vary by state, project and/or bond form, we are unable to provide comprehensive information regarding the procedural and substantive requirements necessary to file and perfect a claim against these bonds here. You may consider seeking legal advice with respect to your particular claim.
