Public Liability Insurance
What Is Public Liability Insurance?
Public Liability Insurance is a type of insurance policy which can be purchased by anybody really, to cover the costs incurred by claims from members of the public in connection to your negligence following your involvement with, or organisation of an event. It can cover the business against costs relating to injury, damage/loss of property and even death.
Our Public Liability Insurance policies are designed to be used in conjunction with any events you may be running. When the event is off site at a different venue, our policies can cover you.
What Does Public Liability Insurance Cover?
Public Liability Insurance will cover you from any legal liability to pay costs for accidental injury or death to members of the public or accidental damage caused to any third party property due to the actions and activities of your business. Your level of cover will depend on the premium you pay.
Depending on the nature of your event, Events Insurance Services will be able to assist you in ensuring you are given all the options and information to be appropriately covered. The higher your premium, the higher your level of cover. For example, if you have a one off event with up to 100 visitors, you can pay a £60 premium to cover you against public liability up to £1million or you can pay a premium of £86 and be covered against public liability up to £2million.
