  • Those that offer advice to clients
  • Those with access to or knowledge of clients' confidential information

Public liability insurance

Public liability insurance

Public liability insurance protects your business against the cost of settling or defending a claim for bodily injury or property damage from a client or member of the public. It's designed to cover you for all the slips, trips and falls that sometimes simply can't be avoided in the workplace or in a professional capacity.

What many people don't realise is that, as a business owner they can be liable for all sorts of accidents both on their business premises and away from them. For example, if you were to damage a client's property in their office a claim could be brought against you. Likewise, if a member of the public or a client slipped on a wet floor at your business premises and injured themself, you could be held responsible
Employers' liability insurance
