Frequently Asked Questions
For Business Australia members. Here are some questions commonly asked.
What is Public Liability insurance and what would it cover me for?
Public liability helps cover you for third party property damage and personal injury for which you are found legally liable.1 For example, if there is a spillage at your business premises and you haven’t yet cleaned it up, and someone slips injuring themselves, the individual who has been injured can make a claim against your business for the injury. In this circumstance, your public liability policy may respond to such an event subject to the policy terms and conditions.
What is the difference between Professional Indemnity insurance and public liability insurance?
Professional Indemnity insurance can help protect your business against claims made by third parties arising from your negligence and/or act, error or ommission in the peformance of your professional services. Public Liability insurance, as indicated above, helps cover the costs associated with a third party’s claim for personal injury or property damage or due to products that are sold or supplied through your business for which you are found legally liable.

Professional Indemnity insurance is a mandatory requirement for some professions in Australia, including some registered professions or as part of a professional membership. The level of PI insurance required can vary by profession where required. Even if PI insurance is not mandatory for your profession, your clients may require it.
