Liability consequential loss insurance protects against financial losses following business interruption that’s happened as a result of a liability insurance claim.
This cover is usually offered as an extension to public, statutory and employers’ liability insurance policies.

As part of the penalty imposed the business was also required to refrain from selling alcohol for a defined period and as a result the business suffered a loss.
