Public & Products Liability Insurance Description
NOTE: Also known as Broadform Liability Insurance – it is the same!
This type of insurance covers your legal responsibility for loss or injury you might inflict inadvertently on a Third Party or to their property from your business services. For example you have a café or restaurant and a group of your customers claim they got food poisoning and ultimately make a claim on you.
If your policy is set up correctly the policy responds paying your legal fees and any judgement the court awards while you get on with your business.
Pitfalls of Public & Products Liability Insurance Policies
Read the exclusions section in the Public & Products Liability Insurancepolicy you buy. Do it within the ‘cooling off’ period so you can cancel the policy if it does not suit your needs, and this will enable you to get a full refund.
Tradespeople who have contracts at airports probably will not have cover for airside functions, unless you purchase the correct policy. Aircraft are very expensive and this is a very specialist area. Your contract needs to be worth the cost of your Public & Products Liability insurance.
If you deal in asbestos products, i.e. the removal of this product on a building site, you need to know that Insurance premiums are very expensive, as the methods of disposal are extremely labour-intensive. We have had recent experience with one claim for the removal of asbestos. It cost $50,000 for a roof about the size of 5 family sized garages, but we had the correct amount for Removal of Debris. You must declare to insurers what you are intending to do or you simply will not get paid.
Your Public & Products Liability insurance policy will not normally cover “errors or omissions” or “design work”. This is an area commonly overlooked.
