Product Liability Insurance

Cover for manufacturers, wholesale, resellers and retail

Where products cause injury or damage, legal battles can go far beyond between consumer and the company that supplied them; a ripple effect throughout the entire supply chain can make proceedings lengthy, complex and extremely costly. 

 

Unjustified allegations need fighting back - the criticism you don't deserve needs the strongest response

 

What does Product Liability insurance cover?

Product Liability insurance protects against claims for personal injury or property damage arising from products sold by your business.

Useful for companies that make, supply or sell products to members of the public. If products cause damage, illness or hurt someone, it is likely they’ll seek compensation through the courts.

The main purpose of Product Liability insurance is to cover legal costs and damages.

Do I need Product Liability insurance?

If you’re making, selling or distributing things, Product Liability insurance is a wise choice.

Sometimes claims will be justified, others spurious. Either way, they can end up costing you a lot of money. Unwarranted claims still need to be taken very seriously – your company’s reputation and brand value are under threat.   

Knowing that you are covered gives your people the freedom to innovate and the confidence to sell.
