Public liability insurance is often a very important cover for painters and decorators, as it can protect you if someone is injured or their property is damaged because of your business. Simply Business offers between £1 million and £5 million in cover, to protect you against this cost.
If you have employees, contractors, casual workers or temporary staff, you’re required by law to take out employers’ liability insurance. It’ll cover claims from employees who’ve been injured or become seriously ill as a result of working for you.
Personal accident insurance will cover you against serious injury, or even death - paying out for lost income, medical costs and the like. Working as a painter and decorator comes with certain risks and this cover should be considered if you would struggle to make ends meet if left unable to work following an accident.
The average insurance claim for painters and decorators is £5,224 – could you afford this if the worst happened? (Average claim being £5,224. Based on data from 21 November 2018 - 20 November 2019, for comparison only. Cancellation charges may apply, please refer to our full terms & conditions.)
