Life Science Liability

To protect your organisation against liabilities arising from manufacturing and research and development, you need an insurance partner with a sophisticated understanding of the complex field in which you operate. 

We protect companies in the life science and clinical research sector against the cost of claims for damage or injuries caused by pharmaceuticals, medical devices or clinical trials.

Support across the spectrum

Our expert team are recognised leaders in this area and can offer a wide range of covers, including Product Liability, Public Liability, Employers’ Liability and Clinical Trials Compensation. We work with customers in a wide range of fields, including pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, clinical trials, medical equipment, nutraceuticals, cosmetics, alternative medicine, and veterinary medicine.

Flexible on structure

We’re not just here for straightforward exposures; at QBE, we have the flexibility, appetite and entrepreneurial spirit to help you with the full range of challenges and opportunities you face. That means we’re open to taking a non-conventional approach when it comes to programme structure. For example, we’re happy to write primary or excess risks, insurance or reinsurance, and to take a flexible view on coverage and sub-limits.

Worldwide capabilities

We are able to offer capacity on both company and Lloyd’s platforms, providing genuine choice in terms of how you want to work with us. We also benefit from the financial strength and service capabilities of the wider QBE Group, which provides cover in more than 150 countries. If you have multiple operations abroad, we can write global programmes that provide comprehensive protection, as well as complying with all legal and regulatory requirements.

Complementary covers

Customers also value our ability to package Life Science Liability cover with other relevant covers, such as Professional Indemnity, Errors and Omissions and Medical Malpractice
