    Hi, Can anyone please advise who they use for insurance in the event of a fall from a ladder. Although I will be using the reach and wash system I might have to use a ladder to get up onto a flat roof to reach some windows that are not accessible from ground level. I have public liability insurance but don't think it covers personal injury. Many thanks.

    I use British friendly, payment protection insurance. Covers you for any medical problem, sickness/injury.

    I'd double check your policy 90% of ppi policies do not cover self employed

    There's a huge amount of variables for premiums, age, medical history amount of cover you require which is offset by you annual taxable income.

    That's not bad Taxlossloz. I would expect the premiums to be higher than that
