It is compulsory to have employers’ liability insurance if you have any employees (with some exceptions).
This is to protect you if a member of staff sues you due to injury, death or property damage or loss in the course of their employment.
Public liability provides you with financial protection if a third party or customer was to sue you for causing them injury, death, disease.
Furthermore, it also covers you if you cause damage to third party property as a result of your negligence.
So, just imagine, without public liability insurance your business could be wiped out by one large compensation claim.
In addition, products’ liability provides you with financial protection if you were sued due to a defective product you have sold.
