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."
