Public & Products Liability Insurance

Running a small business is stressful enough. TIO’s Public Liability cover helps to protect you in the event that your business is legally liable for property damage or personal injury to others.

Protect yourself with public liability

Why do I need Public Liability cover?

Businesses may need Public Liability cover for various reasons - you may become legally liable when members of the public slip and fall in your shop and sustain an injury, or when your products cause property damage or injury. Being protected against claims for personal injury and/or property damage can be vital for many small businesses.

Claims for legal liability can be expensive. That’s why TIO has created a Public Liability solution that allows you to select the right cover for you.

TIO Public and Product Liability insurance also covers your liability arising out of your products.

You can choose your level of cover: $5,000,000, $10,000,000 or $20,000,000 (please note sub-limits apply to certain elements of the cover). TIO Public and Product Liability insurance also covers damage to property that is temporarily in your care, custody or control up to $250,000 per period of insurance.

What am I at risk of?

Public and Product Liability insurance helps protect you if you become liable to pay compensation for personal injury to members of the public, or damage to their property, during the course of your work, or if a third party brings a claim against you in relation to your business activities or product / service.

Refer to the Public and Product Liability Section of the PDS for further details. Cover is subject to the terms, conditions and exclusions listed in the PDS.

The above descriptions of cover apply to the Business Insurance Pack only. The Office Pack and Trades and Services Pack may contain different covers, limits and exclusions, and are not available for purchase online.
