Which liability cover you need depends very much on the specifics of your business. Employers’ liability insurance is necessary if you employ even one other member of staff as part of your company – so if you’re a sole trader, you don’t need to worry about this one. Public liability insurance for tree surgeons protects you against accidents that may happen, implicating a client or member of the public. This includes accidents ranging from something as small as a spilt drink over a piece of equipment, to serious bodily injury. Professional liability insurance is broader coverage which usually includes: public liability, products liability, professional indemnity, and libel and slander.
If you provide advice to your clients at a fee, you may need professional indemnity insurance. Cover is available from between £100,000 and £3,000,000. But remember to ensure that all of your staff are added to your policy. Working with powerful equipment may result in serious injury. You may even be unable to work for long periods of time. You may therefore want to take out personal accident cover.
To the limit agreed within your policy, if you need to work at greater heights, please call the office first to amend your policy.
This depends on a number of factors, including; whether your vehicle is insured for commercial use, whether you’ve locked your van securely when you’re not in it and where you keep your van at night.
