What The Average Person Knows About Product Liability and Coverage

When I ask the average person what they think about product liability insurance, the response I get usually is something like, “Go look it up on the internet – I don’t know!” While it can be something that the average person doesn’t understand or doesn’t know much about, a product liability insurance policy can be one of the most important things a business owner who deals with products in any manner could carry.

Product liability insurance protects businesses from financial expenses that can come up during legal claims or law suits revolving around injury to persons or damage to property because of a defect in a product.

Any entity involved with the product can be held liable – the designer of the product, the manufacturer, the distributor, and the retailer.
