Public Liability Insurance
Public Liability Insurance is a fundamental type of business insurance, particularly if you have visitors to your premises or carry out work on client sites. It can cover legal expenses or compensation claims if clients, suppliers, or members of the public suffer personal injury or property damage because of your business.
What does Public Liability cover?
Typically, public liability covers:
- Compensation payments for third party injury (or even death)
- Repair or replacement costs, for damaged property or possessions
- Medical fees, if the NHS decide to claim for hospital treatment, or an ambulance call out
- Legal expenses, while you’re defending any of these claims

Employers' Liability Insurance
If you have employees, contractors, casual workers or temporary staff, you are usually required by law to take out Employers’ Liability cover, to deal with any claims from employees who’ve been injured or become seriously ill as a result of working for you.
It also applies to former employees, some illnesses take time to show symptoms. It’s possible that a former employee may claim compensation, perhaps a long time after they’ve stopped working for you.
The Health & Safety Executive (HSE) states:
“It is an employer’s duty to protect the health, safety and welfare of their employees and other people who might be affected by their business. Employers must do whatever is reasonably practicable to achieve this.”
As an employer, you need to keep up-to-date with current Health and Safety at Work regulations. If you don’t, it might invalidate your employers’ liability cover.MORE INFO
