What is Professional Indemnity insurance?

Professional Indemnity insurance is intended to protect Professionals and their businesses in the event of claims made by a third party suggesting that they have suffered a loss as a result of non-performance, breach of contract and/or professional negligence.

Professional Indemnity insurance cover could protect your business against:

Professional negligence resulting in civil liability

Claim defence costs

Loss of documents or data

Unintentional breach of copyright and/or confidentiality

Libel, slander & defamation.

Why you need Professional Indemnity insurance?

Professional Indemnity insurance helps to protect your financial stability and to ensure that third parties don’t suffer uncompensated loss. Insurers offer a wide range of limit options starting from £100,000.

Who needs Professional Indemnity insurance?

Professional Indemnity insurance is mandatory for many professions, especially those in the finance, legal and construction industries. In addition, workers in IT, recruitment, media and management consultancies are just a few of the sectors where Professional Indemnity insurance can provide important protection, so if your business is providing professional services to third parties you may wish to consider the following:

  • What duty of care do you have to your clients or other third parties – whether or not there is a contract in place?
  • Do you provide consultation services or advice to clients?
  • Do you handle data belonging to clients?

How do I obtain Professional Indemnity insurance?

Professional Indemnity insurance cover is different for each business and, in many cases, tailored to meet specific regulatory requirements. One way to get a quote is to speak to a Broker. They will ask you about various aspects of your business, such as:

  • Your corporate structure (whether your business is a Sole Trader or a Partnership)
  • Number of employees/partners
  • Wage roll of the business
  • Annual turnover
  • What type of advice you provide, products sold and management issues
