Product liability insurance

Product liability insurance protects businesses against the cost of a lawsuit if a customer claims a product the business sold or manufactured led to an injury or property damage.

When does a small business need product liability insurance?

Product liability insurance protects small businesses against lawsuits related to their products. Manufacturers should invest in this coverage to guard against lawsuits over their products. It’s also important for retailers, who can be held liable for injuries caused by items they sell.

Even if your business does nothing wrong, you could still be sued over a product defect in an item you sold or find yourself responsible for legal defense costs in a frivolous suit. A customer could also claim that your business provided insufficient warnings or inaccurate instructions related to your product.
