What is the difference between Product Liability Insurance and General Liability Insurance?
General Liability Insurance provides protection in a wide range of cases where a third-party suffers injury or property damage either on your premises, or you or your employees cause damages on the third-party’s premises. Product liability only extends as far as such damages being caused by a product that you sold or manufactured. For example, if a customer were to be injured due to a slip n’ fall at your store, any subsequent insurance claim may be covered by general liability but not product liability.
Is Product Liability Insurance legally mandatory for retail and e-commerce stores?
In most industries, product liability insurance is not mandatory, however, it is strongly recommended, especially if you sell items that could easily result in claims. For example, food items may lead to food poisoning. Clothing items may also lead to skin reactions.
Does Product Liability Coverage cover damages to my stock and inventory?
No. All forms of liability insurance only cover damages to a third-party. Injuries to you and your employees, and damages to your assets, including stock and inventory, are not covered under Product Liability Insurance.
