What is personal liability insurance?

Start your quote

Personal liability insurance covers injury or damage compensation claims made against you by a third party. Public liability insurance is the commercial version of this insurance - it covers compensation costs if someone makes a claim against your business for injury or damage.

Personal liability insurance can cover compensation claims if someone sues you for injury or for damage to their property.

In the UK, this isn’t a very common type of insurance, but the business equivalent - public liability insurance - is a popular insurance cover.

Public liability insurance can pay the cost of compensation and legal fees if your business is held responsible for injury or damage. For example if a customer slips on your shop floor because there’s no warning sign, or if you’re meeting with a client and you spill coffee on their laptop.
