Suits Business Needs
Provides relevant insurance solutions which are tailored to the specific needs of your business.
If you’re found responsible for causing financial loss to your client due to inadequate advice, services or designs you have provided, professional indemnity (PI) cover protects against legal costs and expenses involved in defending a claim, as well as compensation payable.
FFor some professions, regulatory bodies make it compulsory to have PI cover in place to carry out their work. Other professionals must have PI as part of a contractual obligation, whilst many choose this cover because of the protection and security it provides if their advice or service delivered fails to meet a client’s expectations.
This depends entirely on the policy. You’ll need to ensure that it provides adequate cover for your business’s professional service and the risks you may face.
The cost of PI insurance varies depending on different factors, such as the level of cover you need, the number of people you employ, your annual turnover and the risks associated with your business activities.
