Public Liability cover offers you protection and it’s a crucial form of business insurance for any videographer. Read more about Public Liability insurance here.

Employers’ Liability insurance

Do you employ staff or hire in freelancers? If you have any person working for you, then you should consider Employers’ Liability insurance as a priority. This will protect you from claims made against you if anyone working for you falls ill, or gets injured, as a result of their work for you. Find out more about Employers’ Liability insurance here.

Personal accident insurance

Have you considered what would happen if you had an accident and couldn’t work? Personal accident cover is a type of business insurance that can cover you and nominated staff if an accidental personal injury stops you from working.

It can be extended to include freelancers if you wish and it will also offer weekly payments for both total and partial disablement, along with lump sum payments for death, loss of sight and/or hearing and loss of limbs. You can find out more about personal accident insurance here.

Client Spotlight
Adam Smith Photography

Photo description: It was taken in Kenya’s Maasi Mara, there were three lioness all living together in one secluded area, they’d all recently given birth and we were treated to the sight of 13 lion cubs! We’d wake up at 5am and travel to that location every morning for a week which resulted in lots of cute pictures, and this one is probably the best, it’s probably the best photograph I’ve ever taken.
