What is public liability insurance?

Public liability insurance will cover you if you cause damage to someone’s property, or if they suffer an injury or any other type of loss as a result of your work.

You may think you don’t make any mistakes and don’t need cover, but no matter how good we are and how much care we take, mistakes can happen.

Sometimes an error may simply cause a few hundred dollars worth of damage. Of course we still don’t like it, but at least we can cover the costs without breaking the bank.

But what if something more serious happened? What if your work resulted in a property being completely destroyed? Could you deal with covering hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of damage on your own?

What if the error resulted in serious injury or even death to someone? The courts can award millions in these types of cases, and if you don’t have public liability insurance you’ll have to come up with those funds on your own.

When public liability can be held for such a small outlay and with such little hassle, surely you’d be crazy not to have it!
