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.

If your business is found liable

Public Liability can cover the cost of:

Damage to property belonging to a third party

Injury to a third party

What level of cover do you need?

Often there is a minimum amount of cover required as part of a contract you may have with a business supplier. In other cases there is no recommended amount, as there is no way to predict the costs for which your business may be liable.

Our most common level of cover is $5 million, however all businesses are different. The level of cover is not related to the size of your business - it's about the amount of damage or injury your business could be found liable for.
