Why buy a Public liability insurance policy
Any property is valuable by virtue of the fact that someone is paying to have it cleaned, repaired, refurbished or built from scratch irrespective of whether the said value is sentimental or financial.
Therefore, a tradesman is constantly at risk of having to pay out for property that gets damaged as a consequence of working on other peoples property. This, though, is in no way the solitary risk that the self employed tradesman or the employees of an incorporated business faces.
A tradesman needs to have business insurance to be protected against the risk of a member of the public, a customer or a staff member being injured whilst on the premises. It is also necessary to be protected against any loss or damage to business property, inclusive of the building, be it through theft, vandalism, flood, fire or otherwise.
By buying a public liability insurance policy you ensure the well being of your business and in order to be adequately covered, you need a business insurance policy that brings together a number of different types of insurance covers namely:
Employer’s liability insurance
Covers any property damage and bodily injuries including legal costs and expenses should an employee get injured.
