Public Liability Insurance
Public liability insurance (or business liability insurance) covers a business for the risk of third party injury or property damage caused by the business during performing the insured occupation. For example, if a builder accidentally dropped a piece of building material off a scaffolding, which then hit a passing member of the public, they would be liable for any damages the injured party may wish to pursue.
A simple example of property damage liability would be if a business has staff who visit customers in their own home, and a member of staff were to accidentally knock over and break an expensive ornament. The business would be liable for the replacement or repair costs.
