Is public liability insurance legally required for plumbers?

Public liability insurance is not actually a legal requirement. However, it’s a necessary cover to have in place as it will ensure that your business is protected financially. It will also make sure that the interests of the public and your clients are protected. To not have public liability insurance can be off-putting to certain clients, as it can mean that you will be unable to cover costs for legal proceedings, repairs or injury should anything happen to you, your clients or a member of the public.
