Public liability insurance

Cover that protects you against public liability, whether you're working freelance or running your own business.

 

What is public liability insurance?

Public liability insurance provides protection for you and your business if customers or members of the public sustain an injury, or damage to their property while at your business premises or when you're working in their home, office or business property.

You're also covered for legal costs and compensation claims. 

What does public liability insurance cover? 

Where options are selected, public liability insurance can provide cover for:

  • Compensation claims should a third party sustain an injury.
  • The cost of repairing or replacing property and possessions that have been damaged as a result of your work.
  • Legal expenses in the event that you go to court to defend against a claim.
  • Medical fees from hospital treatments due to injury received as a result of your business. 

Who needs public liability insurance? 

If you work with customers or from a third party property, you may need to arrange cover for public liability. Although it’s not a legal requirement, public liability insurance can cover legal fees and compensation costs should you be sued for injury or damage to property, so it's important to make sure you're protected.
