How does Public Liability insurance work?
This article will help explain how Public Liability responds to claims, and if you need it.
Public Liability insurance covers the cost of legal action and compensation claims made against your business if a third party is injured or their property suffers damage whilst at your business premises or when you are working in their home, office, coffee shop or co-working space.
This also includes the cost of medical treatment and transportation costs incurred
Do I need it?
If you often visit your clients or work in shared spaces where members of the public are then plenty can go wrong! Imagine you spill a cup of coffee and damage someone else’s computer equipment. Or someone trips over your MacBook charging cable as they rush past and hurt themselves (why do the batteries not last longer!).
