We use Alan Boswell for all our insurance. We moved away from them for one year as we managed to obtain a less expensive quote but found the new company a real pain to deal with.

Mrs McLean - Public Liability Insurance

Public Liability Insurance in detail

Primarily Public Liability Insurance provides cover for claims from third parties arising from a business or persons activities. Examples of this may include:

  • Injury to third party on business premises caused by negligence (e.g. spilled water not tidied up).
  • Faulty product causing damage or injury (e.g. product catches fire and causes damage).
  • Damage to property caused in normal course of business (e.g. builder drills hole through pipe).


  • They are very similar types of insurance. Products liability covers claims caused by the actual product e.g. a wheel falls off a bicycle due to a fault causing injury to the rider. Public liability is a lot wider and will cover negligence of a business or individual e.g. not cleaning up a spill, fixing a rip in a carpet.

  • No, Public Liability Insurance is often integral to many insurance packages and is not sold separately. However there are many situations where Public Liability Insurance will be sold on its own e.g. someone buying a strip of land.

  • Again this all depends on your business activities. If you are a shoebox maker then you will need limited cover, whereas in contrast if you make landing gear for aircraft you would need a far higher level. Our experts will understand your business and your potential liabilities and provide an insurance solution to fit.

  • We do not provide certificates of insurance but appreciate proof of insurance is required to fulfil certain contracts such as government contracts and we can provide “To whom it may concern” letters detailing your insurance cover.

  • Yes, we can arrange airside cover for you and your business.
