Bricklayer insurance why do you need it?

You and your company may be financially liable for the result of accidents caused by you, your company or a contractor either on your site or elsewhere. Public liability claims can be very expensive, which could have a major impact on you or your bricklaying business. As well as giving you peace of mind to get on with your job, many companies and trade associations require evidence of public liability insurance.
