What type of liability insurance do you need?

There are three main types of liability insurance

 

Public Liability

Public Liability Insurance isn’t a legal requirement, although some local authorities might require you to have it. Its purpose is to cover any damages awarded to a member of the public due to an injury or damage to their property caused by you or your business.

Employers' Liability 

If you employ one or more members of staff, you are legally obliged to take out Employer’s Liability Insurance for a minimum of £5m. This will cover you if an employee or ex-employee make a claim for illness or injury caused by your business, including compensation costs and legal fees.

Product Liability

If someone, or their property, has been damaged or injured by a product sold by your business, they have grounds to make a claim against you. Even if the product wasn’t manufactured by your business but includes the name of your business or if you have repaired/refurbished it, you may still be liable.

Steve Allen (MD) | Steve Allen Properties Limited

The Insurance Centre acquired the insurance broker I used to insure with approximately 15 years ago. Since then the work Claire Banks carries out for us is extremely efficient, she is reliable and does exactly what she says she will.

For that reason I have continued to renew our insurance with The Insurance Centre and I am very thankful for what Claire and the team do.
