I am a profesional engineer working for a roof truss manufacturing company. My company's insurance company tells me that I am covered for the engineering work I do for sealing roof truss shop drawings. I have hired an attorney to review our insurance policy and he states there is an exclusion in the policy that would prevent me from being covered. My question is this... Can someone who works for a roof truss manufacturing company out there, and who is sealing roof truss shop drawings, tell me what kind of insurance they are carrying? And is there anything that needs to be added to a typical product liability policy to cover an employee, who is an engineer, providing engineering services?
