Do you need public liability insurance?

Here are some examples of if or when your Public Liability Insurance would come in handy.

Market Stall

You own a market stall but fail to secure it properly one weekend, and a gust of wind blows your gazebo onto your neighbour's market stall, damaging their property. As a Youi Business Liability insurance customer, we’d cover the cost of damages for the property damage if you were responsible to pay them to your neighbour.

Plumber

You run a small plumbing business and when one of your employees was completing some hot work on a client's home, a spark went unnoticed and ended up causing a small fire, setting the client's bathroom on fire. Your business is responsible for the property damage, but luckily, your Youi Business Liability insurance covers the costs.

Painter

You have a painting business and one day when painting a wall, the tin gets knocked off the scaffolding and spills all over a parked car below. You're responsible for the property damage to the car, and since you have Youi Business Liability insurance, it's all covered.

Electrician

One of your electricians did a job a few months ago at a customer's home. Unfortunately, due to some work that the electrician carried out, the meter box has caught fire and your business is responsible for property damage to the customer's home. As a Youi Business Liability customer, your responsibility to pay damages to the customer is covered.

It’s a good idea to have Business Liability insurance. It covers your business' liability to pay compensation for personal injury to third parties and damage to their property (i.e. members of the public) if the business is found to be liable.

It also covers the business's liability for incidents relating to the business's products if the business is found to be liable. Many people assume you only need Business Liability insurance when you’re on-site, but you actually need it all year round.

For example, imagine you own an electrician’s business - one of your electricians did a job a few months ago at a customer's home. Unfortunately, due to some work that the electrician carried out, the meter box has now caught fire and your business is likely to be responsible for property damage to the customer's home.

Youi Business Liability will generally cover this situation.

Even something as simple as running a Market Stall will require Business Liability Insurance. Here’s an example: You own a market stall but fail to secure it properly one weekend, and a gust of wind blows your gazebo onto your neighbour's market stall, damaging their property. As a Youi Business Liability insurance customer, we’d generally cover the cost of damages for the property damage if you were liable and responsible to pay costs to your neighbour.

At Youi, we’ll make it simpler for you to get the cover required as a Market Stall holder. Just call 13 YOUI and we’ll talk you through the whole thing.

Business Liability Insurance covers your business' liability to pay compensation for personal injury to third parties and/or damage to their property (i.e. members of the public) if found liable. It also covers the business's liability for incidents relating to the business's products.

Your business is responsible for the property damage, but with Youi, your Business Liability insurance covers this damage to the clients bathroom.
