Why do you need this policy?

Here's an example:


David is a carpenter contracted to build a pergola at a residential property in Melbourne.

During the construction, David accidentally drops a cross beam onto the existing paving beneath the pergola. Unfortunately, this results in cracked pavers and the homeowners hold David responsible.

Luckily, David's Tradies insurance includes Public Liability, which covers him for damage to third party property. He was able to lodge a claim with his Insurer, have the paving fixed for the homeowner and complete the pergola contract.
