Why Buy Professional Indemnity Insurance From Us?

Why Do You Need Professional Indemnity Insurance?

There are many reasons for choosing to buy professional indemnity insurance. This could be to meet contractual obligations or to comply with regulatory requirements.

Your business may require professional indemnity insurance for the following reasons:

  • Giving advice to clients 
  • Providing a professional service
  • Handling information that is confidential in nature
  • Using material that is subject to copyright or intellectual property belonging to others 
  • Belonging to a professional body and their rules stipulate that professional indemnity insurance is compulsory
  • A client insists your business arranges cover before they offer you work (a contractual requirement to have the cover)

Your business could face a claim if you provide negligent or inaccurate advice and as a result of that advice your client suffers a financial loss. 

A professional indemnity policy will pay for your legal defence costs and any damages or settlement amounts needed to resolve the claim against you.

Of A Professional Indemnity Insurance Policy

  • Offset the financial risk to your insurer
  • ensure your business doesn’t have to fund claims
  • receive professional legal support when things go wrong
  • Protect your business against costly negligence claims – the policy will pay for any compensation that you need to pay (up to the level of cover you choose)
  • Pay for legal costs to defend you even if the claim isn’t valid
  • Provide you with expert advice and representation to minimise disruption to your business
  • Show your clients that you take your professional reputation seriously
  • Comply with contractual obligations
  • Meet regulatory or trade body requirements

Reduce The Risk

Professional Indemnity insurance offsets the risk of claims to your insurer. This means that your business doesn’t have to pay for costly legal defence costs. Or find the money to meet any settlements or claims payments.

Could your business afford to pay the costs of an expert legal defence team and the claims payment? Costs can run into the tens of thousands of pounds and more, so a policy to cover this makes perfect business sense.

As well as meeting contractual or regulatory requirements (Accountants, Architects and Solicitors for example are all required by their governing body to hold PI insurance) arranging professional indemnity insurance demonstrates to your clients that you take your reputation seriously and that your clients interests are protected by the policy.

Professional indemnity policies will provide a wide range of cover to protect against the following typical scenarios:

  • Negligence/mistakes/errors and omissions If the advice you provide to a client is negligent or you simply forget to do something or make an error, your client could suffer a loss that they try to claim back from you.
  • Dishonesty of Employees Dishonesty of employees could lead to a loss for your business. PI policies will often provide cover for these potentially costly losses.
  • Infringement of intellectual property rights As an example, if you breach copyright the copyright owner could sue for damages.
  • Loss of documents and data Lose documents or data that causes your client a financial loss could lead to a claim.
  • Libel and slander Libellous or slanderous acts can lead to very expensive legal proceedings and substantial claims for damages. PI policies usually provide cover for this which can protect you from these costs.
  • Unintentional breach of confidentiality Mistakes happen, and a breach of confidentiality can easily occur regardless of strict business processes.
