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.
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
