Primary Liability

Primary Liability

Casualty (or liability) is one of our lead lines of insurance and we’re committed to developing products that keep pace with and protect our clients from an increasingly litigious business environment.

 

Our standard policy wordings provide broad and comprehensive cover for conventional risks.

 

Dealing with something more complex? Our underwriters and risk engineers are well-known for partnering with insurance brokers and their clients to build bespoke programs for hard-to-place industries and occupations that demonstrate that they are highly risk-managed and actively manage the health and safety of their premises, operations and products.

 

We focus on forming long term partnerships with our casualty clients. Our Casualty claims team has forged an enviable reputation for their service orientation and responsiveness, and will help to give you peace of mind.
