Public and products liability is wide ranging, from managing the risk of injury from a member of the public or a customer whilst on your premises to an injury by your business activities or the carelessness of one of your employees, to liability arising from your employees causing damage to third party property. Additionally, a product you have sold could cause injury to the purchaser or another user, or damage to their property. In such circumstances it is possible that you could face a claim for damages and compensation from the purchaser or user.
