While generally public liability insurance is not a legal requirement in the UK, it is a very popular cover for market traders and stallholders, as well as for other businesses that regularly come into contact with members of the public.
Public liability insurance can cover compensation costs if someone sues your business for injury or damage. For example, a customer slipping or tripping over is one of the most common accidents in the book, and can often result in a public liability insurance claim.
The average insurance claim for market traders is £3,424 – could you afford this if the worst happened? (Average claim being £3,424. Based on data from 21 November 2018 - 20 November 2019, for comparison only. Cancellation charges may apply, please refer to our full terms & conditions.)
Public liability insurance from Simply Business includes product liability insurance, which can be particularly important for market traders, as it protects your business in the event that your product causes injury or damage to a person or their property.
Should that happen, you could be liable to pay compensation even if you didn’t manufacture the product, and the costs can be severe.
You can tailor your market stall insurance policy to your own requirements choosing from additional covers, such as stock insurance, business premises insurance, business interruption insurance and more.
