Endsleigh urge businesses to think about public liability
With a rise in the number of personal injury claims over the past decade, insurance company Endsleigh is warning businesses to think more about public liability.
An influx of ‘no win, no fee’ legal services has changed the way Britain views claims of compensation and a ‘where there’s a blame, there’s a claim’ mentality making it more acceptable for people to make a claim.
After a recent survey found that whiplash claims have risen to over 70% Endsleigh is advising businesses to think about the importance of public liability insurance to make sure that they are covered in the event of a claim.
Mike Day from Endsleigh said: “There has been a significant rise in the quantity of personal injury claims over the last decade, and Endsleigh is on hand to help businesses understand their need for having a public liability policy in place.”
Personal liability insurance covers the cost if a member of the public is injured by you, one of your employees or in an accident while visiting your premises. This type of cover also covers you if you damage property belonging to someone else while carrying out business activities.
Endsleigh was founded in 1965 and, as well as home, motor, travel and landlord insurance run a Business Insurance Service which caters for small, medium and large companies.
