Filming In Texas
Film Insurance Requirements in the State of
Workers’ compensation insurance is not mandatory for employers in Texas. However, should an injured employee file a negligence suit, employers that do not carry such insurance lose certain common-law defenses.
You also must have production insurance in the amount required by the desired locations that names the State of Texas as an additionally insured.
We recommend holding:
Certificate(s) of Insurance (COI) as evidence of General Liability coverage in the amount not less than $1,000,000 for each occurrence.
A separate additional insured endorsement for the COI with the following wording: “the State of Texas, including its officers, agents and employees is named as additional insured, with respect to liability arising out of the operations related to filming on Texas state owned or operated property.”
