What is Public Liability insurance?

When accidents happen, your business could be responsible for paying compensation under many circumstances. Public Liability insurance can cover the cost of pay-outs and legal fees if your business is sued by a third party (third parties include members of the public, customers or clients, but not your staff).

Public Liability insurance can cover an accident in your work area or relating to your business activities. This includes incidents on your premises as well as those that occur while doing business offsite.

You should consider Public Liability insurance if:

  • Customers visit your premises, for example you have a shop, restaurant or hairdressing and beauty salon
  • You work on client sites, for example you’re a tradesman carrying out work in people’s homes or gardens.
  • You work in public, for example you’re a builder, and your work could potentially cause injury or damage to a member of the public

Do you give advice or provide a service?

If you give advice or provide a service when working for a client then you may need to consider Professional Indemnity insurance (also known as PI).

Professional Indemnity Insurance can help to put mistakes right and cover any legal costs if a client alleges you have provided inadequate service or advice.

Keep in Mind

  • Insurance covers are subject to the individual terms, conditions and exclusions of the insurer providing them. Always review the policy documentation supplied during the quote process to ensure you have the cover you need.
  • Employers’ Liability insurance is a legal requirement for almost every business that employs staff, including contractors, casual workers and volunteers. The legal minimum for cover is £5m.
  • To offer this insurance service, we work with Arthur J. Gallagher Insurance Brokers Limited, one of the UK’s largest insurance brokers. Arthur J. Gallagher will search a panel of insurance providers for quotes tailored to your business’ insurance needs.
  • Property damage resulting from your work. An electrician drills through a water pipe, or a roofing company fails to leave the roof water tight, damaging a customer’s property.
  • Someone tripping, slipping or otherwise injuring him/herself in your work area. This can be a customer, member of the public, client or a contractor, but excludes your own employees.
  • Dropping something while working or if something falls without anyone touching it, such as a stack of heavy boxes, injuring or damaging a customer or his/her property.
  • Someone from your business accidentally spilling a drink over a client’s computer.

Employers’ Liability insurance can cover the cost of pay-outs if your business is sued by an employee for injury or illness caused by employers’ negligence. These typically include damage pay-outs, medical costs and loss of income. In case of death, policies cover claims made by the family of the deceased.
