What is Public Liability Insurance?

As a business owner you have a duty of care to protect your customers and their belongings and should a negligent act on your part cause damage or injury or death then your customer has the right to sue you. Public Liability insurance provides indemnity cover should you accidentally damage someone’s property or if you injure a customer or member of the public in the course of your business activities.

We live in an ever more litigious world and whilst public liability insurance is not yet a legal requirement you can imagine how your business would be financially damaged should protection not be in place and you are unfortunate enough to be sued.

Do I need Public Liability insurance for my company?

Whilst Public liability cover is not compulsory, Invicta Business strongly recommends that every tradesman, professional or business who comes into contact with the public should seriously consider protecting themselves with public liability insurance. Whether your trade involves manual work like a builder, carpenter, plumber, electrician or any of the other allied trades or even if your occupation is of a more sedentary nature including professionals such as architects, project managers, accountants and business consultants you can choose an indemnity level to suit your requirements from £1m to £5m. Often if you are a sub contractor or you work with local authorities or on government, local care or educational premises your contract will insist that you have public liability cover in place with a £5m indemnity limit.

What other covers should a tradesman consider?

It is a legal requirement for companies in the UK to have Employers Liability insurance cover in place if they have any employees working for them. PAYE staff and self employed labour only sub contractors would fall within this category. Employers liability cover can be added to your public liability quotation easily and competitively by simply choosing the relevant section when completing your quotation.

In addition you may wish to also consider including contract works cover; which offers cover for the contracts you are working on against theft or damage to materials or to include cover for your own or hired in plant. All these additional benefits can be included within your quotation by simply clicking on the relevant cover sections.
