- Accidents at Work
Workplaces can be hazardous places, and despite health and safety procedures being followed accidents still occur that are not the fault of the employee.
- Faulty Products
This would cover any injury caused by a product you have purchased e.g. a child choking on a small part of a toy sold as suitable for under three-year-olds, an electric shock due to a loose connection, or a cut from a sharp piece of metal or plastic.
