Product Liability Insurance

Product liability insurance is designed to indemnify the manufacturer or producer of a product for costs and losses incurred in the event of one of their products being defective or causing a loss to the purchaser.

Compensation could be awarded to anyone who has fallen ill, been injured or experienced property damage as a result of a product that is designed, manufactured and/or sold (or given free) by your business. You may also be liable for compensation if your business name is featured on the product, if you are involved in changing or repairing a product, or if you imported the product from outside the EU, and if you don’t know who the manufacturer was, or if they are no longer in business.

For example, a farmer supplies milk to a creamery and the milk is contaminated causing a loss to the creamery. A claim would be made against the farmer for supplying a defective product, normally this would be covered under the farmers product liability section of the policy.

Product Liability insurance isn’t mandatory in Ireland, however if a claim is taken against you and you do not have cover, you may be held personally liable.

Product Liability insurance gives you the confidence to get on with your business knowing your financial risk is reduced in the event something goes wrong.

Product Liability insurance is designed to cover:

  • injuries or illness triggered by your product
  • property damage or loss as a result of your product
  • other events caused by a fault in your product that your quality system was unable to identify.

Your policy will not provide cover for product faults that are a result of poor workmanship or any financial losses experienced as a result of your product.

I recently had the privilege of dealing with Stephen in Sheridan Insurances regarding a complicated car insurance issue, (Well complicated for me). Stephen took the time to assess the situation, then spent an hour sorting through the various issues. He got me great cover at a fair price & made the experience seem so simple. All was done in a professional & friendly manner. I commend Stephen highly & the face to face interaction certainly beats the online quagmire frequently presented by most insurance companies.

Dealt with Miriam in relation to my car insurance. Pleasure to deal with and great advice when insuring the car to bear in mind if I was going to add my daughter who was starting to drive as this could have an impact on her getting cover with particular insurers. Great service and advice

Lifesavers – With 110% professionalism at all times, we were provided with much needed support and guidance under difficult circumstances, with a very tight deadline. Without the team in Sheridan Insurance’s diligence and effort, going the extra mile on more than one occasion, we can honestly say we wouldn’t have the secure future we can now look forward to. We would recommend Sheridan Insuances to anyone looking for any type of insurance. Hands down the best decision you'll make! Thank you Audrey, Brian and Niall. Richard & Maria Leonard

My name is Philip Sheridan Sides.I was buying a van on done deal when I saw the advert for Sheridan insurance. The playright Richard Brinsley Sheridan was one of my ancestors and that is where the Sheridan in my full name as we had the same name. \I rang the office for a quote and was put through to broker Kelly Crowe. My first premium was high as I had been with Dolman Insurance who specialise in Camper vans and my no claims on the camper van was not able to transfer. This is something I believe the insurance industry should change as it is unfair on camper van drivers who like myself at the tie use the vehicle as their only method of transport.This was seven years ago. I am a very busy free lance photographer, musician and I run an NGO called Whistles for Refugees.The NGO collects unwanted tents and sleeping bags at festivals, thus saving them from landfill thus turning this landfill into aid for the most vulnerable people on this planet fleeing the horrors of ISIS. Whistles for Refugees also brings whistles out to refugee camps, music is healing and the Irish tin whistle gives the opportunity for the refugees to learn and play Irish music with an instrument that is light portable, inexpensive to buy and relatively easy to learn.Sheridan Insurance are currently researching for an underwriter to provide public liability insurance for our NGO so that our volunteers are covered should they get pricked by a needle while cleaning out tents at festivals or any other risk involved in our work.Broker Kelly Crowe has been amazing at her job. From the very beginning Kelly was able to organise a quote, with my line of work and my bad luck with vehicles I am often having to rent replacement cars to make sure I get to my commissions safely and punctually. I am never 5 mins from getting my insurance transferred to keep my rental costs lower. I needed a copy of my no claims bonus to get insured on my partners camper van and this was emailed to me within 5 mins of my request, even though this was with a different firm!I also run a tour business bringing clients on adventures with sea kayaking and photography. Once again my broker was able to produce a policy that was affordable and organised with minimal fuss in minimal time.For quality, price and especially (what I believe is the most important in business) service, Sheridan insurance is second to none.I could not recommend Sheridan Insurance and my broker Kelly Crowe enough.

We all hate shopping for insurance but the brokers at Sheridans do all the legwork for you and find the best deal and the cover you actually need - plus they are easy to deal with. You get assigned a broker and you can actually speak to a real human being. Great idea.
