Security Industry Public Liability Insurance

Public liability is one of the most important considerations for any business working within the Alarm or CCTV sector. By the very nature of your business you will be working where you are in contact with members of the public particularly where you are working on site.

Public liability insurance is designed to protect you in the event that a member of the public makes an accusation that they have suffered loss, damage or injury as a result of your business activity. Sometimes a claim is later dismissed or proven to be untrue, without having the neccessary cover in place you could have amassed significant costs in mounting your defense.

Public liability insurance can protect you by providing the legal defense costs . If the case is proven against you, and you are instructed to pay the claimant compensation, public liability could again cover the cost for you.
