Put simply, Public Liability insurance is designed to protect you in the event a customer, supplier or a member of the public is injured or sustain property damage as a result of your negligent business activities.    

This covers legal fees and compensation costs if a customer, member of the public, or a supplier brings a claim against you for injury or damage to their property as a result of your alleged negligent business activity. We offer cover options  of $5 million, $10 million, and $20 million.
