Insuranceopedia explains Incidental Contract
An incidental contract will come into play, for example, if a repair and rebuilding company is hired to remodel the interior of a building. If the remodel involves making changes to the electrical system, the company might hire an electrician as a contractor. If the electrician makes a mistake on the job resulting in faulty wiring, the incidental contract in the repair company's general liability policy will provide coverage for the legal costs associated with the contractor's error.
