What is meant by public liability insurance?
Unexpected incidents can happen, and they can sometimes result in injury to the persons involved. Public liability insurance can assist when customers, visitors, or other members of the public bring personal injury or property damage claims against your business. It only protects the individuals with whom your company interacts; it does not cover your staff.
If a claim is filed against your firm, our coverage may be able to cover the costs for which you are held accountable or liable, including any related legal fees and charges, as well as any settlement amounts. This helps you to focus on running your business while we handle the paperwork and claims.

What does public liability insurance cover?
The majority of public liability insurance plans in the United Kingdom will cover you for incidents that occur on your premises or elsewhere, whether a customer falls over your toolbox or someone’s dress is damaged while getting their hair done at a wedding. A public liability insurance quote should be thoroughly reviewed to verify that your insurer will cover the risks you face (for example, some insurers may not cover accidents caused by your products).
Claims for compensation
If a person is injured or their property is damaged as a result of your business, they may choose to file a claim. If their claim is successful, they may request that you compensate them for their suffering. You will be held liable if your business actions contributed to the occurrence, whether it occurred on your premises, their premises, or a third-party site.
