Public Liability Insurance for Tradesmen & Self Employed
Keep your business safe and protected
Accidents can happen for the most cautious of businesses. Make sure you’re protected if a customer or member of the public are injured due to your business.
If an accident happens, it could be your business that has to pay compensation.
Public liability can cover the cost of compensation and legal fees resulting from injury or property damage where your business is at fault.
