wheelchair and public liability insurance

sazzlesazzle Member Posts: 5 Listener
We've recently been informed that we need insurance for our 11 year old daughter who uses an electric wheelchair. Apparently because the chair was purchased by a charity rather than the NHS (even though she was assessed by an NHS OT  who said the NHS wouldn't provide one so would have to approach a charity) we could be sued if she injures anyone. Does anyone have advice about this? We've had the chair 4 months and this is the first we've heard about it.
