What is public liability insurance? 

It’s protection for you against claims of personal injury or property damage as a result of your activities.

If someone is injured or their property is damaged during your event they may take legal action against you to recover their losses. This insurance will help protect you and your business by ensuring you don’t have to pay any legal or courts costs.
