PLASTERERS INSURANCE: Because You Can't Always Just Smooth Things Over
As a self-employed tradesman, you know that in a competitive world you're only as good as your last job. So you take great care to ensure that nothing goes wrong.
But don't be fooled into thinking that you can do without plasterers insurance. Accidents do happen. Particularly if you're under pressure to finish a job quickly.
And you know what life is like. It will be on the one occasion you don't put protective sheets down that you drop plaster on a valuable rug and don't realise until it's too late. Or you leave your ladder in a dangerous place and the customer trips over it and injures himself.
In situations like these, you won't just be able to smooth things over. Even if you do have the gift of the gab. The fact is that with so many 'no win, no fee' legal services around, there's a very real possibility that a claim for damages will be made against you.
Even if you don't think it was your fault, you'll still have to spend time and money (on very expensive legal bills) defending yourself. And if the court finds against you, you could end up having to make the kind of compensation payment that you simply can't afford.
If you don't have plasterer insurance that is.
If, on the other hand, you do have insurance, including public liability cover, you won't have to worry. Because all the bills will be taken care of.
And while you're thinking about insurance, don't forget that if you've got so much work on that you need to employ someone, even on a casual basis, you'll need to include employers' liability cover in your plasterers insurance package. It's not an option, it's a legal requirement.
Fortunately, it couldn't be easier to protect yourself against the consequences of that day when it all goes wrong. Just follow the link to get the insurance for plasterers that will keep you covered.
