Protect your business against 3rd party liabilities
Why do I need Liability insurance?
Although good Risk Management and housekeeping processes, procedures and practices may prevent the likely occurrence of events that exposes your company to being sued, it is not possible to completely eliminate the risk. You or a member of your organization, including employees, may make a mistake that causes bodily harm or property damage to others. Such an error could result in causing damage to a customer's reputation, invading the privacy of a person or even a financial loss to them. If these occur you may be held legally responsible to pay compensation to the aggrieved parties as a result of your actions or inaction.
The compensation payable on a lawsuit of this nature could bankrupt your company depending on the extent of the harm caused by the incident, including the number of people injured and/or the value of the property damaged. Even if your organization is ultimately cleared of any wrongdoing, a determined plaintiff can keep you entangled in an expensive legal proceeding for an extended period of time, incurring significant costs to defend yourself. Liability insurance pays the defense costs and thereby safeguards your assets.
