What is Public Liability Insurance?
Public 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 premises.
Office accommodation providers, landlords and serviced offices will often insist on a firm having public liability cover.
The policy not only covers any awards paid to the complainant but also legal costs.
