Meadons now has access to a new innovative Product giving market leading cover for the Rural community. 

 

Rural Protect – specialist management liability insurance for the rural community

The financial and legal risks facing the rural community have never been greater. Customers, employees and suppliers are increasingly willing and able to make claims, and investigations by UK regulators including the HSE, Environment Agency and HMRC are more robust and commonplace than ever before.

Finding a bespoke type of management liability insurance specifically designed to protect the interests of the farming and rural community has been a challenge for many businesses, until now.

 

Bespoke rural insurance for you and your farm business

With our in-depth knowledge of the rural community, Meadons have developed a new and specialist policy to protect the interests of all types of businesses – Rural Protect.

This bespoke product provides cover for both the business and personal liability of the owner, partner or director in the event of an allegation or investigation. The policy provides cover for the legal representation costs plus any award made and is tailored to reflect the specific risks and particular circumstances faced by farmers and rural business owners and managers.

 

Rural insurance for farm partnerships and sole traders

Whilst protection for Directors of Limited companies has been available for many years, this unique product will also cover Farm Partnerships and Sole Traders in addition to Directors meaning that all types of farming and rural businesses can be protected against the increasing litigation and regulation they face.

 

A specialist type of rural insurance

Key features of this specialist type of Management Liability insurance from Meadons include:

  • Legal Costs, Awards or Settlements for any claim or regulatory action brought against any past, present or future director, partner, owner or employee
  • Covers all regulators in the UK
  • Standard cover includes Company cover – claims made against the business as opposed to an individual
  • Does not contain a “prospect of success” clause unlike Legal Expenses
  • Investigation and defence costs are covered, plus awards
  • Access to rradar – a specialist law firm providing a risk management service to underpin your insurance policy.
