With the Consumer Protection Act (CPA) being introduced in 2011, greater emphasis is now placed on the rights of the consumer with rights to claims against anyone in the chain from which the goods were supplied and / or services rendered.
Liability claims could devastate any company, irrespective of the size of the entity or the strength of their balance sheet, as this is usually unknown and difficult to quantify.
General Liability policies typically provide cover for liabilities as a Property Owner, Tenant or “General” liabilities. Cover can also be included for Products Liability (damage, death or injury arising out of the use of a product of the insured company) or Defective Workmanship (cover only for defective work, after it has been handed over). As this is a vast topic, details of cover cannot be explained on our website. Please Contact Us for any queries you may have concerning liabilities.
