Product Liability Insurance protects your business from product lawsuits.

Product Liability Insurance protects you from injuries or property damage caused by the products you manufacture or sell. For example, if you produce or sell electronics, and these electronics overheat and explode, you can be held liable for any injuries or property damage caused. If you sell healthcare products, you can also be held liable for liability if your products make people sick.

Product wholesalers and manufacturers will often carry Product Liability Insurance to protect themselves against such risks. Lawsuits are expensive to deal with, so it’s best to pay a small premium in exchange for protection against potential legal nightmares.

What Does Product Liability Insurance Cover in Singapore?

This type of insurance will pay for:
1. Lawyer fees to defend your company from claims of professional negligence
2. Legal damages awarded due to such lawsuits (covers damages and settlements)

  • Errors & Omissions / Negligence / Malpractice: Coverage for your mistakes while performing services for clients. 

 For example, if you run an Accounting practice and make mistakes while auditing financial statements, your clients could file a civil suit against you for malpractice.

  • Defamation: Coverage if you are found guilty of libel or slander.

    For instance, you make verbal claims (slander) and written claims (libel) about a competitor’s services that are later found to be untrue, resulting in you being sued. 

  • Retroactive Claims: Coverage for mistakes that occurred before you bought Professional Indemnity Insurance.
  • Professional Indemnity Insurance is usually structured on a “Claims Made” basis. This means that even if your claimable event occurred several years ago, as long as you file a claim while your current policy is active, you’ll be protected. You must have held uninterrupted Professional Indemnity coverage for this retroactive protection to apply.
  • Subcontractor Errors: Coverage for subcontractor mistakes that harm your clients.
  • IP Infringement: Coverage for accidental violation of Intellectual Property (IP) belonging to someone else.

Example Claims:
1. An architect makes errors while drawing up building plans. These errors cause building faults, and delays in the construction project. The client sues the architect for $500,000 in damages.

  1. A nail salon, performing manicures, accidentally causes infections in several clients’ fingernails. The clients collectively file $100,000 in civil suits for negligence, and personal injury.
