What is Professional Indemnity Insurance?

Professional Indemnity Insurance provides protection for professionals for legal costs and claims for damages to third parties, which have arisen as a result of the advice or services that have been provided.

Why Do I Need Professional Indemnity Insurance?

Professionals are required by law to render advice or perform services to a certain “standard of care.” Failure to do so can result in a liability for losses arising out of that advice or the services provided.

Additionally, Professional Indemnity Insurance may be required for contractual, legislative or membership purposes.

A correctly structured Professional Indemnity cover provides professionals with protection for claims by a third party for actual or alleged damages arising from their professional advice or services, including the associated legal costs together with meeting any contractual, legislative or membership requirements.
