A public liability insurance will protect your business in the event a third party person is injured or their property is damaged as a result of your business activities or on your business premises.
Public liability insurance becomes a must for businesses which involve:
Leasing or owning a premises
Frequent visits by customers and guests
Carrying out work at client’s premises
Regular interaction with the public
One size does not fit all. We work with Leading Public Liability Insurance companies in the UAE to tailor the right policy for you and your employees.
Accidental death of third parties due to negligence
Bodily injury of third parties due to negligence
Loss or damage to property of third party due to negligence
Legal costs and expenses
Do you own or rent a property such as a building, warehouse or an office?
Does your business involve work in public areas or visits to a client’s premises?
Does your business involve manufacture or distribution of any products?
If your answer is yes to any of the above, you have some level of exposure towards third parties and it is highly recommended to have a public liability insurance to cover these risks. You may additionally be required by contract to provide proof of such an insurance cover to your clients.
Public liability insurance offers cover against claims from third parties and clients for negligent damage to their property or bodily injury up to the limit specified in the policy. The limits would include costs of legal defense and damages awarded by a court.
Limits can be offered from as low as AED 500,000 up to AED 100m any one occurrence. Obviously the limits required may depend on a requirement from a free zone or as contractually required for a project.
Insurers maintain the right to defend claims and insured’s aren’t allowed to offer any remedy or accept liability without written consent of the insurers.
Cover is usually offered on an “occurrence basis”. This means that as long as a covered event has “occurred” within the period of insurance, the policy will respond. So it doesn’t matter if the claim was made after the policy expired.
Any liability directly or indirectly arising out of war, mutiny, foreign enemy, rebellion, revolution etc
Any liability arising out of ionizing radiation, radioactivity from a nuclear fuel
Punitive or Exemplary damages, fines, penalties
