Is there a risk of you, your staff or your products causing damage or injury to another person or their property? 

If so, you might need public liability insurance.


Public liability insurance covers you if visitors to your place of work injure themselves or if you accidentally damage something or somebody whist away from your premises.

The most common incidents that result in a claim for compensation are slips and trips by visitors.

Whilst it is not a legal requirement you should consider this as one of your core business insurances, irrespective of the size of your company. If members of the public or customers visit your office or work premises, even if you are home based, having public liability insurance is a must.


If a claim is made against you it could include:

  • Loss of earnings
  • Future loss of earnings
  • Damages awarded to the claimant
  • Claimants legal fees
  • Cost in defending the claim


Aside from the general public liability, if you sell a product, even as a retailer, you could be liable for loss or damage caused by any defects in the products, so you will also need a products liability extension.  Current legislation makes the retailer liable even for goods sold in sealed manufacturer packs!
