Direct Line offers insurance for surgeries/offices
by Richard Kilner
A new product has been launched by Direct Line, and is aimed at those who own offices and surgeries.
The product offers £2m worth of public and products liability in addition to £10m of standard employers’ liability cover.
Business interruption cover and a 24 hour phoneline offering counselling and/or legal guidance are included as standard in the product.
A variety of optional extras are available, such as cover for personal accidents.
A spokesman for the insurer, Kate Syred, explained that cover was important for owners of surgeries/offices due to the expensive equipment contained within.
In the future Direct Line has plans to offer similar products aimed at those who work from home, or own pubs and restaurants.
