Why Are Public Liability Premiums Increasing?

Are Public Liability Premiums Increasing?

According to Steve Sloan from Publicliabilitycomparison.com.au public liability premiums are increasing, and here’s why.

Insurers Hardening Market

“Insurers have been through a cycle of lower premiums that have reduced the returns to their shareholders. They are now in the position where they need to raise the premiums to improve the situations. Lower premiums coming to an end

Many public liability insurers that last year were offering lower premiums to get new policy holders are raising the premium on renewal

More excess in the event of a claim

Others are raising the standard excess in the event of claim, most have gone from the first $400 to $500, making claimants think twice about claiming in the event of small third party property losses.

Stamp Duties

Most states use insurance stamp duty to balance their budget. NSW in particular removed stamp duty only to reinstate in a move that left consumers and insurers confused and out of pocket, as NSW controls so much of the insurance pool, the administration costs of the changes were reflected in premiums across the country.

Insurers mergers and acquisitions

Some of the insurers that’s offer public liability insurance for tradies and small business have gone through some ownership and management changes. This includes brands like Calibre, Vero and Zurich.”

Steve Sloan recommends getting a comparison every time your policy is due for renewal. “Let the market cycles help you get the best premium, but check with your broker to make sure the policy wording and inclusions are the same or better than your existing cover.”

How Much Public Liability Insurance Do You Need?

In Australia insurers generally offer 5 Million, 10 million and 20 million dollar cover options, but how much public liability insurance do you need?

According to Steve Sloan a broker with Insure 247 "It will depend on your occupation, risk exposure, and legal requirements"

5 Millions Dollars Cover

$5 million will offer minimal cover that may be enough for a business with little exposure to the public.

10 Million Dollars Cover

$10 million moderate cover will suit businesses with a larger exposure to the public or that may have a business to business risk, or where you are required by contract to maintain that level of cover.

20 Million Dollars Cover

$20 million is a more comprehensive cover, required for business with a high exposure to the public, or companies that enter a local, state or federal government contract or work on one of their facilities.

Public Liability Insurer CGU explain "Every business is different, and there is no ‘one size fits all’ rule for how much public liability insurance your business needs. Sometimes the amount of public liability insurance you need will be dictated by the contracts you work on – for example, some corporate and government contracts will stipulate a minimum amount of public liability."

At Publicliabilitycomparison.com.au we quote broadform liability cover, this covers your business against claims for personal injury to another person (other than employees) or damage to property owned or controlled by someone else, or advertising liability. Property damage, personal injury or advertising liability which gives rise to legal liability must happen during the period of insurance and be caused by an occurrence in connection with your business activities, Broadform also cover product liability.

If you are still unsure speak to a broker or talk to our team on 1300 046 787, to discuss your requirement.
