How Much Public Liability Insurance Cover Should I Have?
How much cover do I need?
When you arranging your public liability insurance, one of the first things you will be asked to decide is how much cover should you have?
How much cover is available?
Most Australian insurers offer $5 Million, $10 Million and $20 Million dollars worth of cover, some may even go as high $30 Million.
That seems like a lot of cover, but Steve Sloan from Insure 247 explains why it's so high and what to consider.
What does it cover?
Public liability insurance covers your business against claims of property damage or personal injury as a result of your business activities. While most claims are for property damage and of a low value, they can be high, for instance in the case of a catastrophic loss like your business activities causing a fire.
Personal injury claims are far more complex but they can be more expensive in the long run, for example you maybe sued for the loss of future income of the claimants.
If your dealing with the public $5 Million is now the minimum offered, if your dealing business to business you should consider $10 Million and if you are dealing with local, state or federal government, shopping centres or mining companies they will generally ask for $20 Million.
