Why Do You Need Professional Indemnity Insurance?
Do you work as a freelancer or contractor? Perhaps you run your own limited company and want to protect yourself in case a client is unhappy with your work or advice?
No matter how diligent you are, mistakes still happen from time to time, some of which can cause your client to lose money.
That’s where professional indemnity insurance comes in. PI insurance as it is also known, protects your business if relations with a client become acrimonious, covering any associated legal costs and expenses you might have to pay to defend a claim made against you. It also provides compensation payable to your client for any loss or damages.
PI insurance can also cover you for the following:
- professional negligence
- unintentional breaches of copyright or confidentiality
- data protection legislation prosecution defence costs
- loss or damage to documents.
