What is Public Liability Insurance?
Public Liability Insurance protects you and your business against the financial risks of being found liable for a third party death or injury, loss or damage to property or economic loss resulting from your negligence.
Do I need Public Liability Insurance?
The likelihood of something happening is unpredictable and the associated legal fees that can arise when an incident occurs can be financially crippling.
As a business owner, you have a duty of care to any third party that is associated with the business and its activities. Therefore, Public Liability Insurance is highly recommended for all business types across every industry.
What does this Insurance cover?
A Public Liability Insurance policy will typically cover you for:
- Legal representation costs incurred during the settlement of a claim
- Injury or damage to a third party caused by your business' activities
- Damage caused by your business to someone elses property
- Loss and damage of goods
- In addition to Public Liability Insurance, if you own a business that sells or delivers goods you may also want to consider getting Product Liability Insurance. Product Liability Insurance is suitable for people and businesses that supply products to customers. It protects you in the event that your goods or products cause personal injury, death or damage to a member of the public. This could include customers, suppliers, delivery drivers, clients etc.
