Does public liability insurance cover my advice?

At Insure 247 we are often asked does public liability insurance cover a loss as a result of my advice?

For almost every business in Australia, when carrying out their normal business activities there is a potential for a claim from a loss resulting in a legal liabilities including personal injury or property damage claim. So you should have public liability insurance cover.

Does your occupation offer advice?

But when your occupation or product is the advice you offer i.e Accountants, health services, financial planners etc. Professional indemnity insurance will be required as additional cover for claims arising out of an actual or alleged breaches of your professional duty, this would not be covered in your public liability insurance policy.
