Public Liability Insurance


Protection in case a third party takes you to court after an accident

What is Public Liability Insurance?

Public Liability Insurance provides protection for you in case a member of the public decides to sue you after an accident. And that can have resulted in damage to their property, an injury, or even death. Public Liability Insurance covers you for for any legal costs, as well as compensation if you need to pay it. Most policies ensure you are fully protected on your own premises, or even if you are working in someone else’s home or office.
