Why Do I Need Professional Indemnity Insurance?

Any business that holds itself out to clients as a professional organisation, is at risk of having an action brought against their business if something goes wrong with a service or product.

For example, if a Landscape Architect makes an error in the design of a garden, it could result in a claim being made against them to rectify the problem.

Errors happen, and when they do, insurance is needed to protect your business and livelihood. With most Professional Indemnity Policies, the Insurer will pay the defence expenses up to the limits of the policy. Defence costs alone can prove costly to your business with no cover in place.

Any business that provides a service or product should be aware that every prospect, customer or client can result in a lawsuit. It only takes one award from the courts to put a company out of business.

A Professional Indemnity policy is rated based on the industry the business participates in, the limit of indemnity required, and the claims history (if any) of the applicant and the rate will always be based on the amount of risk involved. The policyholder must understand that they are covered for errors they make, not intentional acts. An accountant that intentionally puts wrong information in the accounts of the client will not find protection from the Insurance company for the intentional act of cheating.
