Why is this cover important?
Public Liability insurance covers your business for claims arising from bodily injury or property damage suffered by a third party as a result of your business activities, whether it happens on your business premises or not.
No matter the size of your business, Public and Products Liability claims can stretch into hundreds of thousands, or even millions of dollars. Accidents happen, and when things go wrong or even if you are not at fault you may still incur considerable legal costs just defending yourself.
So do you have spare cash flow available to get the best legal advice to look after you and your most important asset – your business?
Don’t assume you will be safe without Public Liability insurance just because you run a small business. Something as simple as a coffee spill over a client’s computer, or a loose nail causing a customer to trip whilst visiting your office, could cost you thousands if you’re uninsured.
