Why Tradesmen need liability insurance

Whether you are a self-employed man or woman or a limited company, as a trades person, there are many risks that you may encounter. Simply leaving your building equipment on the ground could be a trip hazard to a member of the public walking past. This is why public liability insurance is vital.

It protects you from the cost of any unexpected incidents that tradesmen could be liable for, which could result in financial difficulties for you and your company. Public liability insurance for tradesmen is not compulsory but essential to ensure your business’ survival.

Common types of claims

  • You leave a live wire loose, someone is electrocuted
  • You have completed some pipework in the bathroom which bursts, causing water damage to the room below
  • You drop your hammer when doing some work up a ladder, it hits a passer-by on the head

This cover is optional but Ashburnham 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.
