Sole Trader Public Liability Insurance
Integral to sole traders, public liability insurance makes up the backbone of your insurance policy. A cover that protects you from claims made by clients or members of the public, it covers a wide breadth of potential claims that could arise out of your business activities. It provides cover for both injuries sustained by third parties, as well as damage to their property.
Below are just some examples of claims that public liability insurance can help to protect against:
- Damage to a parked car whilst transporting materials onto the work site
- A client tripping over the cable of your power tool whilst you’re working
- Damage to a client’s carpet whilst carrying out work
- A member of the public tripping over your building materials whilst they’re out on a public pathway
In addition, there are also other types of liability insurance worth looking into as well. For example, products liability insurance protects you from claims arising from products you’ve sold or supplied, even if you didn’t manufacture said products yourself. Employer’s liability insurance protects you from claims arising out of injuries your employees sustain during their work. And professional indemnity covers claims of professional negligence. All of these covers help to provide comprehensive cover, to protect your business, no matter the circumstances. Simply put, while public liability insurance is one of the most integral insurance covers you should look for when choosing your sole trader insurance policy, these other liability covers will help to bridge the gap, and prevent you from facing a number of other claims that public liability insurance alone won’t cover.
