Contractors can risk legal action in respect of their liability to others for accidental personal injury or property damage arising from their activities. Potentially, the awards that can be made as a result of a successful claim can be substantial. Unfortunately, even the legal costs of defending the most spurious claim may cause financial hardship. This underlines the importance of being insured for Public liability. This covers legal defence costs and compensation awards arising from accidental bodily injuries and property damage caused to others during your work.
