Public liability insurance protects your business in the event of an unforeseen incident. It covers claims made by the public that happen in connection with your business's day to day activities.
Public liability insurance is often provided with product liability cover, and ensures if needed you can pay compensation for unintended and unexpected personal injury and property damage arising from your products or services.
Sometimes called “general liability insurance”, public liability can cover events ranging from minor workplace incidents to serious accidents.
Could you afford to meet the cost of a compensation claim if your business was sued and you didn’t have cover? Do potential clients expect you to hold public liability insurance? Could you lose clients if you’re not insured?
If your business comes into contact with members of the public, if you have visitors to your premises or work on client sites, public liability insurance is a very good idea.
In the trades industry it is often mandatory to have public liability insurance in place before entering worksites. Depending on the nature of your business, you may need more than the minimum level of cover, so it’s sensible to check your policy every new job or contract.
