Public & Products Liability

Public and Products Liability is considered to be one of the most important insurance covers for all businesses.

Public and Products Liability insurance is designed to protect you and your business from the significant costs associated with any legal action as a result of your actual or alleged negligence that has caused third party property damage or personal injury, whilst acting in the course of your business (including employees) or through your products.

Accidents can and do happen.

You have a duty of care to uphold to your customers, employees, and the general public. If deemed negligent, even without intent, compensation ordered payable to claimants can be substantial and potentially damaging to the financial position of your company.

Public and Products Liability insurance can cover you for:

  • amounts you are required to pay as a result of claims
  • compensation for third party personal injury and/or property damage, arising as a result of an occurrence in connection with your business
  • legal proceedings, including defence costs incurred to defend the claim
  • most Public and Products Liability insurance policies will also include liability for damage to property under your physical and legal control.

A Public and Products Liability policy will ensure that your business has greater financial security for the future, allowing you to plan ahead with greater certainty.

Please Note: Below are some of the more common insurance policy features, however, the list is not exhaustive and some features may not be offered by certain insurers. Please refer to the insurer specific policy wording for inclusions, exclusions, terms and conditions.
