Why your business may need public liability insurance
- You have visitors coming into your workplace – whether it's your home, your office or a site where you are working.
- Your business takes you to other people's property – a public liability claim could be made against any member of your business if they accidentally cause damage to anything which doesn't belong to your business.
- A client insists your business has this insurance before they offer you any work.
- Anybody working for your business or the work your business carries out puts any other person at risk of injury.
Nowadays even minor injuries and property damage can lead to major compensation charges. Where there's blame, they say, there's a claim. If one's ever made against your business by a third party, we cover your legal liability up to the cover levels you choose.Get a public liability insurance quote from AXA
