Why do I need Professional Indemnity cover?

Delivering the best outcomes for your clients will always be your number one priority and you enjoy great client relationships, but sometimes things can go wrong no matter how good your intentions are. Perhaps you lose a client’s data or provide erroneous advice or are alleged to have lost data; these unintentional mistakes or allegations can leave you vulnerable to prosecution which may result in financial loss and reputational damage.

Professional Indemnity Insurance protects you and your business, should you (or a member of your team) make an alleged mistake. If you provide professional services, designs or advice it is definitely something you should consider.

We provide Professional Indemnity Insurance for accountants, scientific and biotechnology researchers, boarding kennel and cattery service providers.

Who should have Professional Indemnity Insurance?

For some professions Indemnity Insurance must be in place as part of their industry bodies’ regulatory requirements. These include accountants, chartered surveyors, financial advisers, solicitors, architects and some healthcare professionals.

If you are a consultant offering advice or provide professional contract services, Professional Indemnity Insurance will bring security for both you and your client and is likely to be a factor in securing business. Professional Indemnity gives your clients confidence that in the unlikely event that something goes wrong, they won’t be left high and dry.

Even if you don’t need to have Professional Indemnity in place by law, it’s still a good idea to put adequate cover in place, should the unforeseen occur. A robust policy could save you thousands of pounds in legal fees and compensation, not to mention the time it takes to defend a claim. Having the right Professional Indemnity Insurance policy in place, will bring you peace of mind.
