Why do you need to consider professional services insurance?

When you work for yourself, your business is more than your reputation – it’s also your livelihood. Regardless of whether you’re a consultant, designer, agent or any type of skilled professional, you may encounter an unhappy customer who may lodge a claim against you at some point. Professional services insurance can help give you peace of mind that you have protection for your business. 

Professional indemnity and public liability insurance can help protect your business against claims of incorrect, misleading advice, breach of duty or negligence, third-party claims of injury or property damage, and costly legal fees.

Frequently asked questions

There are a number of different factors that may influence the cost of professional indemnity insurance, such as the service provided, company size and revenue. 

When requesting a quote make sure that the declared value of the business is accurate; so the correct premium and cover for your business can be arranged.

‘Claims made’ is a term used to describe an insurance policy that covers claims which are notified during the policy term. This may not necessarily be the same period in which the accused incident or error resulting in the claim occurred.

Professional indemnity policies provide a 'claims made' basis of cover because advice or service errors in many professions are often discovered weeks, months or even years after the mistake was made.

It’s also important to note that, if the limit of indemnity was changed, it is the limit purchased when the claim is notified that applies, not the limit purchased when the work was completed.

Our team can provide support and proactively guide clients through the claims process.
