Product Liability Insurance
Every business has different insurance needs. If your primary business relies on the sale of products rather than services, you may benefit from product liability insurance. Product liability insurance is not the same thing as general liability insurance. It tends to be industry specific and offers coverage against claims of personal injury or property damage that may arise after use of your product. In some cases, it may function as a companion to public liability insurance and professional indemnity insurance.
What does product liability insurance cover?
The purpose of product liability coverage is to protect businesses from litigation and steep court fees. Most cases of product liability arise from a malfunctioning or defective product, rather than willful negligence on the part of the business. Product liability insurance is a layer of protection against the unexpected. It allows you to proceed with your day to day operations with the peace of mind that you will not be bankrupted by legal fees.
In addition to covering malfunctions or product failure, product liability insurance also covers errors at any stage of the distribution chain. This means that regardless of whether the failure originated from the manufacturer or the wholesaler, the coverage remains unchanged. Moreover, product liability coverage also protects against claims of failure to warn about hazards, or failure to provide adequate instructions on product use.
