So, what is personal public liability insurance?

Personal public liability insurance is designed to indemnify an individual from the threat that they will be sued by a member of the public. The basic concept of public liability is that it will cover you in the event that you are found legally liable if you cause injury or death to a third party, or damage to a third party's property.


Personal public liability insurance is the most basic essential cover.


Although it will not prevent you from being sued, it will provide the financial backing in the event that there is a claim awarded against you.


If you do not have public liability insurance and you get pursued for compensation you will be liable to pay the full amount of the claim and if you are not able to pay the compensation you could lose your home, business, and any other assets that you have.


Where am I covered?

The territorial limits of the policy are Great Britain, Northern Ireland, the Isle of Man and the Channel Islands.


When does my public liability insurance become valid?

When you become a fully paid up member of the MVT and you receive your valid membership card. This is required to confirm proof of cover to event organisers.
