If you manufacture goods directly or sell products that have been manufactured elsewhere, you should consider product liability insurance.
Product liability insurance covers the cost of compensating anyone who is injured by a product that your business made, designed or supplied where the injury can be shown to be a result of a fault in that product.
If you make or supply products to the general public you have a responsibility to ensure that they are safe. Many products are regulated by health and safety and product safety laws.
If you are manufacturing or selling any products, it is vital that you ensure that you are complying with these laws.
However careful you are sometimes a product you have supplied may cause accidental injury or damage.
Product liability provides cover for bodily injury, illness, disease, loss of, or damage to, third party property caused by the products you sell, supply, service and/or repair.Your business may be held legally responsible for goods you supply even if you do not manufacture them.
