Liability Insurance

Liability Insurance provides coverage from Financial Loss if your actions, you are negligent or the condition of your property has caused another person to be killed or injured, or their property has been damaged or destroyed or if another person suffers loss due to reliance on your advice or services provided.

Liability insurance takes three forms:

  1. Public liability
  2. Professional liability
  3. Product liability

 

Liability products are most commonly taken out by businesses for risks involved in their day-to-day operation, but they are also built into many property insurance policies, for example liability cover in home and contents insurance.

Liability insurance typically covers two key financial risks that a business may be exposed to when it comes to liability:

One is the legal cost of defending a liability claim made against you.

Second is the compensation that you may be required to pay to wronged or injured party if proven you were liable. In addition, sometimes, court costs for the other party are required to be covered.

What does Liability Insurance cost?
