Public Liability Insurance
What is Public Liability Insurance?
Despite the very best of intentions, accidents can still happen in any business. Public Liability Insurance protects you against claims for personal injury or damage to a third party. In NSW, Public Liability Insurance is a government requirement for all businesses, including sole traders and smaller operations.
What does Public Liability Insurance cover?
Today’s businesses are exposed to an ever-growing list of legal liabilities. As increasing globalisation makes the world and legal systems more complex, so does the process of ensuring your liability policy is broad enough to pick up all of the legal liabilities you’re potentially exposed to in the normal operation of your business.
Liability Insurance covers the cost of legal action and compensation claims made against your business if a third party is injured, or their property suffers damage whilst at your business premises or when you are working in their home, office or business.
While it is something that most of us would hope to never make a claim on, the costs associated with a Public or Product Liability claim can be enormous. In 2018, the total amount of claims paid over the year was over $1.9 billion
