Liability insurance is essential for anyone working in the motor trade and is split into three main areas: Public liability insurance – to protect members of the public if they are injured on your premises Employers’ liability insurance – to protect you and your employees if one of them suffers an injury at work Sales or service indemnity insurance – to protect you against claims of accidental damage to vehicles you’ve worked on
Employers’ liability insurance is the only liability insurance that is legally required. This is to protect you and your employees if one of them has an accident at work and is a must if you have any full- or part-time employees.
The law requires you to have £5,000,000 of cover; however, at Unicom we understand that a major claim for compensation could significantly damage your business. This is why we can provide up to £10,000,000 – to ensure your business can meet the cost of compensation or legal fees without suffering any serious financial implications.
If an accident occurs and you don’t have adequate cover, you risk being prosecuted and fined by the authorities, which could be financially detrimental to your business.
