What is the difference between Public Liability and Professional Indemnity? Do I need both?
Public Liability and Professional Indemnity cover different types of risks.
Public Liability covers your legal liability to pay compensation for injury or damage to property caused to a third party in connection to your business. For example, if a customer slips and trips while on your business premises.
Professional Indemnity, on the other hand, protects against the risks associated with providing advice or recommendations to clients. For example, a customer could sue you for damages if it's alleged that your advice has caused a loss.
If your business has customers visiting your premises and you also provide advice or recommendations to those customers, then Public Liability and Professional Indemnity Insurance may both be beneficial to you.
