What is public liability insurance?

Public liability is a form of insurance which is designed to protect businesses against the risk of causing property damage or personal injury to other people.

A business such as a cafe, bar or restaurant has a high risk of personal injury simply due to the large amounts of foot traffic coming through the premises.

There is the risk that someone could slip and fall within the business premises, and there is also the serious risk of health issues when serving food and beverage.

If your business is found to be responsible for property damage or personal injury to a patron or member of the general public, usually you will be liable for financial costs such as medical expenses and compensation.

With public liability insurance you can move this financial responsibility from your business to the insurance company, provided that the incident is covered by your policy.
