Tradesman Saver’s Public Liability Cover For Bricklayers

Our standard cover is:

  • £1 million cover for public and products liability (with an option to increase to £2 million or £5 million)
  • £10,000 cover for any financial loss (£50K cover optional)
  • Worldwide liability cover for temporary work abroad for up to 14 days (excluding the USA and Canada)

There are many insurance options which would benefit your bricklaying business, and public liability is one of the most significant. This protects you if your work ends up damaging a client’s property or injuring a client or member of the public. For example, you may need to pay compensation if a client trips over your tools and is injured or you accidentally damage a customer’s carpet with your muddy work boots.

Claims such as this can cost a small fortune but having public liability cover means you won’t be responsible for paying any of the resulting expenses. You can purchase this as part of our automatic package, which also covers you for financial loss, legal expenses, and more.

Other relevant insurance policies for a bricklayers business include employer’s liability, which is a legal requirement for anybody who employs staff, and professional indemnity insurance. Here at Tradesman Saver we have all the coverage you may need as a bricklayer and you can get your quote online in minutes.

Bricklayer’s Public Liability Insurance

When you’re looking for bricklayer’s insurance, it can become easy to get lost in the vast array of insurance terms out there. There’s so much information to digest, it can quickly become incredibly confusing to work out what you do and don’t need, and what covers are right for your business. The most important of these covers, however, is public liability insurance, and it’s the one you’ll really need when things go wrong. What you need to know about public liability insurance is that it’s kind of like the foundation of your entire bricklayer’s insurance policy. Put simply, it covers injury to third parties and damage to their property, and can cover claims from both clients and members of the public. Some examples of situations it could protect you against include accidental damage to a client’s vehicle and a member of the public tripping over the cable of your power tool.

When Bricklayers Insurance Saved The Day!

Sometimes, it doesn’t matter how careful you are in your line of work; there are always unforeseen circumstances you just can’t account for. Fortunately, if you have the right cover in place, it can help to minimise some of the impact. Here’s some examples of how our Tradesman Saver insurance could help you in a pinch:


Slips, Trips & Broken Fences!

You’re laying the bricks at a client’s property for an extension they’re having made. Unfortunately, as you’re lifting one load of bricks, you accidentally trip over your trowel and the bricks go flying, knocking down a section of their back garden fence. The client then files a compensation claim against you for the damage to their fence. Your public liability insurance can really help here – your insurer will pay out the costs of the damage, so you can continue focusing on the task at hand.

Fire Strikes!

You’re working on a construction site where you’re laying the bricks for a new house. But, later into the project, the electrician doing the wiring makes a mistake and the whole house catches fire, ruining your months of hard work. Your contractor’s all risks insurance is a great help in this situation – it’ll pay to have the work repaired or re-done, so you won’t have to pay the costs from your own pocket.
