    What does 10 Mill get you that 2 won't?

    OK probably a thoroughly discussed question previously but the search bar won't come up with exactly the right thing.. Looking at insurance cover from different organisations and wandering - why would anyone ever need 10 million indemnity cover for any one occurrence? Surely there are hardly every insurance claims nearing 1 million let alone 10? I ask as my own liability cover is (an apparently measly) 2 million for any one occurrence supplied from a deal with the SSA. Can someone please tell me where I have missed the trick? I have recently been turned down some stalking based purely on this fact that I didn't have 10 mill cover.

    Ive given this a lot of thought and i think the answer is 8 Mill.

    OK. Worst case scenario,

    A) A ricochet off a hidden rock wounds an elderly lost pensioner in the thick wood behind the trees. £500k comp?
    B) A ricochet off a hidden rock wounds and paralyses a business owner searching for his lost dog, who earns a million pounds per year, has a very good barrister and he is unable to work, but is expected to live for another 30 years? £30 + million comp?

    The 'law' is about as unpredictable as it gets. Whenever I used to have to use them for work related contractual disputes etc, you would NEVER get a straight answer or commital from any decent solicitor. Bit like Doctors in that regard.

    Dave nailed it in his post.

    You would be be amazed at the costs. A good buddy of mine had a serious motorbike accident where some Doris knocked him off and his settlement was in excess of £2m which sounds like a lot till you factor costs and honestly It's not a lot and will probably need a top up.

    So so imagine if you have multiple added into that.

    I think 10£mil is the minimum public liability for anyone working on the Public Highway - must be for a reason.
    Ok lots of members of the public about so risk increased........
