Professional indemnity insurance can be complex. We are here to assist and demystify the process for you.

Mistakes happen, its a fact of life.

It doesn’t matter how experienced you are or how good your intentions were, mistakes still happen. This is why professional indemnity insurance is so important for anyone who receives a fee either directly or indirectly for advice or service.

Professional Indemnity Insurance will protect you should you become legally liable for costs as a result of:

  • Any actual negligent act, error or omission; or
  • Any alleged negligent act, error or omission

To put it simply, professional indemnity insurance will give you protection should you make a mistake without the financial strain of having to defend yourself.

What is the process and how long will it take?

So you have decided that you need Professional Indemnity Insurance. The next question is always how much cover do I need?

The amount of cover that is usually required can be dictated by the following outside influences:

  • Your association or industry standard,
  • The companies requiring your service, or
  • Government Legislation

If you fall in the above categories it can be easy to set your requirement limit as it is usually done for you. If you fall outside of these guidelines you will need to consider the following when selecting a limit of cover:

  • The highest potential financial loss that a third party can claim against you, based on the value of the contract you enter in and the loss of future earnings.
  • The policy limit must be sufficient to respond not only to the largest claim but also the total number of claims in a year.
  • Consideration must be given to the cost of legal costs as these can represent a significant portion of any claim.

If you are still unsure of which limit to go for, I am more than happy to have a chat with you to determine your requirements.
