Why Contractors need liability insurance

As a contractor, you hold all of the responsibility for the future of your business, just one accident can cause untold financial trouble for you. If you were to cause damage by mistake to someones property whilst contracting in the construction of a building public liability insurance is the answer.

It covers you from the risk of a claim that could be for all manner of injuries and damage you may cause when providing your contracting service. From minor property damage right up to major injury or even death.
Public liability insurance for contractors is not required by law but we think you will agree, it is of high importance.

Common types of claims

  • Damage to the lounge below a bathroom is caused by a burst pipe from your plumbing
  • A fault in some of your electrical work causes a fire
  • Varnishing some wood, it drips onto the floor and does not come off

This cover is optional but Ashburnham Insurance recommends that you certainly consider having it. Furthermore, if you have valuable equipment, you may wish to consider tools cover to provide compensation in the event of them being stolen.
