Public liability insurance can cover various areas of risk and types of compensation. At Lloyds Bank, we cover both public and employers’ liability insurance, giving you a full range of protection under one policy.
No. Unlike employers’ liability insurance , public liability insurance is not legally required. However, there may be cases where clients expect you to have public liability cover in order to work with you.
If someone gets hurt or their property is damaged in connection to your business, the first thing to do is minimise further risk. Then, contact your insurer as soon as you can, even if the third party hasn’t made a claim against you yet. The insurer will consider the case, decide if your insurance can cover it and advise you on the next steps.
While terms and limits can vary depending on the insurer, public liability insurance can typically only cover third-party claims, such as customers, clients and the general public. With Lloyds, you can arrange employers’ liability and equipment insurance as part of your public liability insurance policy.
Whether or not you may need public liability insurance can depend on what kind of business you run. If you are self-employed and exposed to the public by providing a product or service, it can be a good idea to have public liability insurance in place to help cover you if something goes wrong.
What business insurance you may require as a sole trader varies from business to business. However, if you have your own employees, you may be legally required to hold employers’ liability insurance. Other relevant business cover may include professional indemnity insurance and buildings and contents insurance.
Here are some potential scenarios where someone could make a public liability claim.
