Public Liability Insurance at a glance

  • What does it cover?
    Public liability insurance covers compensation payments and legal fees if you are found to be responsible for injuries to any third party or damage to their property. The person injured could be a client or customer, one of your suppliers, or just a passer-by.

  • How much cover do I need?
    The level of cover you need is related to the amount of risk faced by your business. Cover can be anywhere from £2 million to
    £10 million or beyond. The minimum value could be dictated by the clients you work with.

  • Is Public Liability Insurance legally required?
    No, however it may be required by any client contracts you have and some companies who are governed by a regulator or membership body may be obliged to take it out.

  • Defending a claim
    Whether you feel you are at fault or not, defending against a claim can still be expensive. Public Liability insurance can help to cover the costs.
