Public & Products Liability Insurance

If a client slipped or fell in your studio you could face a public liability claim. Public Liability insurance may support you in the event a client becomes injured from an accident in your premises like the scenario described. Product Liability insurance can help in the event the use of a product you sell, supply, or manufacture causes injury to a client.


Additional cover

If you currently hold a Professional Indemnity and Public & Products Liability policy with BMS, additional cover is available to you. This includes business insurance, entity insurance, cyber liability insurance, and personal accident insurance.
