Why would I need Business Liability?
Business Liability FAQs
Public liability insurance is not a legal requirement in the UK. However, the majority of businesses are required to have employer’s liability insurance. But even though it is not a legal requirement, business liability can protect your business and save you money in difficult situations.
Public liability insurance is important for any business where members of the public gather. Restaurants, hotels, cinemas, and theatres, for example. It is also useful for tradespeople because it covers them against any accidental damage they cause to a client’s property. All businesses can benefit from professional indemnity cover too because it offers protection in a number of situations.
Business liability covers you in a range of situations, depending on the type of policy you take out. Public liability protects you financially when somebody is injured on your property and also if your business is responsible for causing property damage. Other forms of business liability can cover you against accusations of negligence or issues like data loss. Business liability covers the cost of any compensation payments and legal fees.
Every policy differs, so it’s important to check what isn’t covered. However, most policies will not cover you for personal injury or damage to your personal property.
It depends on the nature of your business. If you regularly host clients at your home, you should get insurance in case they injure themselves while in your home. You will also need business liability if you visit client’s homes for any reason.
This can cause some confusion because people assume the two terms mean different things but they don’t. In the UK, we use public liability while general liability is the US term, but the cover is the same.
The cost of a policy depends on a number of factors including the size of the business, the number of employees, and the level of cover you need.
If you are concerned about business liability costs, we can help you find the perfect policy at an affordable price.
