Liability insurance for an ecommerce business is designed to protect you from the risk of legal claims for compensation being made against you when a customer alleges they have suffered injury or damages as a result of your ecommerce business.
While it is not a legal requirement, it is vital to carry this type of insurance to protect yourself against unforeseen events that could damage or even destroy your business and, in some cases, even result in you being personally liable for significant financial losses.
The increasingly prevalent risk of cyber attacks on ecommerce sites means your customers’ personal and credit card information could be stolen and could result in significant losses. Even with all care taken, the products and services that you sell also have the potential to cause damage or injury to your customers. Having suitable liability insurance in place can protect you against legal claims and cover any damages you need to pay if you are found liable.
