Public liability is a type of insurance intended to protect a policyholder against claims made by members of the public who suffer injury or damage to their property as a result of the policyholder’s business activities. The policies cover the legal costs involved in the defence of a claim and the awards made to third parties if negligence is proven against the policyholder. Policies can cover you for public liability for trading at your premises and some policies will give you cover for causing injury or damage away from your premises. Indemnity limits available on Publicliability.ie are €2.6M or €6.5M. As well as considering your own indemnity limit requirements, if you are required by another party to provide public liability insurance it is recommended that you check the indemnity limit required prior to purchase.
In running a business you face the potential of legal proceedings for injury or damage caused to a member of the public as a result of you carrying out your business. Having a public liability policy provides a business with protection to defend a claim and pay an award if found to be negligent.
A number of factors may affect what your public liability costs, such as
Your occupation and the industry you work in
The numbers involved in your business
If you work away from your premises or abroad
Previous claims or losses
