Cover your business against public and products liabilities

With frequent changes in the legal environment, businesses today must actively manage their liability exposures. Evolving exposures can lead to unexpected and complex claims with daunting implications in terms of expenses, time and business reputation.

Even if you have taken all necessary precautions, accidents do occur and you can face third-party bodily injury or property damage claim – particularly if the accident is deemed to have been caused by your negligence. Your customers can also allege that your products caused damage and/or injury to them and again, you may be held legally liable.

Whether you are a large or a small business, you need the advantages of QBE’s General Liability Insurance. This cover is available for any legal liability for goods you manufacture or supply as well as for the services that you provide.

Plus, if you are served with legal proceedings by a third party, QBE General Liability Cover enables you to continue to focus on your business while we manage the legal process. Financial protection is also provided against third-party property damage/personal injury, legal defence costs and other potential liabilities.
