Public liability insurance

 

Public liability insurance provides businesses with cover from legal action pursued against them in the case of negligence when loss, damage or injury sustained on or to their property.

The table below compares a selection of public liability insurance policies available in the market. We have selected the products which have information publicly available to be included in the table. The information about the public liability insurance policies in the table is as at the 5th of December 2019.

While best endeavours have been made to reflect accurate information, this information should not be solely relied upon.
