Public liability insurance

- Injury. You are covered if someone makes a claim against you for slips, trips or falls.
- Accidental damage. You are covered against damage from anything from fixtures or fittings to burst pipes.
- Legal cover. You are covered if you need a solicitor or need to go to court.
Product liability insurance
Product liability insurance covers you if a property is damaged or someone is harmed as a result of products that have been sold or supplied by you. Cover such as inefficacy cover can be included in this which will cover any loss or damage to property that is caused by faulty products.
Professional indemnity insurance
Professional indemnity insurance covers financial loss. This loss may be as a result of flawed design work or improper advice rather than accidental damage that will be covered under public liability insurance.
