Public liability insurance claim examples:

1. Claims made against an electrician:

An electrician was engaged for the installation of a heating system in a commercial building. However, the installation was incorrectly done and caused a fire resulting in damages to the property, which amounted to £50,000. The electrician's insurance policy covered the cost of damage.

2. Claims made against a furniture assembler:

A cabinet that the furniture assembler had fitted fell from the wall, and caused injury to another contractor. The furniture assembler was required to pay just £250, as his insurance policy was able to cover the majority of the costs (£25,235).
