Public & Employers' Liability Insurance

We can build you a cost-effective policy that covers the third-party risks you face.

What is Public & Employers' Liability Insurance?

Public & Employers' Liability insurance covers against third party claims for injury or damage to someone else’s property. It doesn't provide cover for damage to your own property. 

Anything from an old doormat to a wobbly window pane to an erroneous web page can lead to a claim against you.

The most likely claims you’ll make through your corporate liability insurance will result from accidents such as slips and falls. Statistically, nearly half (48%) of all liability claims stem from such accidents.*

Engaging a broker who knows your industry and takes the time upfront to truly understand your business can result in more comprehensive cover at a highly competitive price that covers all the third-party risks you face.
