Why is Public Liability insurance important?
Public Liability insurance is your protection if you are found to be legally responsible for personal injury to a third party or damage to their property.
It is one of the most important covers you can get, that’s why liability cover comes as standard with all our business insurance packages. Some exclusions, such as cover for injury to your workers, apply.
Public Liability can cover the cost of:
Damage to property belonging to a third party
Injury to a third party
Other covers that might suit your business
Some of our most popular options
This is a summary only, so check the Product Disclosure Statement and Policy Wording for full details of what is and isn’t covered. It’s dry we know, but it’s essential reading.
Cover for your legal liability in relation to your market stall or trade exhibit setup and products

You can change your cover by contacting us. As a business owner, it’s good for you to review your cover each year, as well as when you expand your business, move premises, or upgrade your equipment.
No. At least, not automatically. While cover for property damage is available, that doesn’t necessarily extend to damage caused by flood. We may be able to extend your policy to cover flood, but it’ll depend on our underwriting guidelines. If we do offer you flood cover, it’ll likely incur additional premiums. If you’d like to discuss whether flood coverage is available for your business, please contact us.
