What is professional indemnity insurance?
Anyone can make a mistake – but if your business is found liable for negligence, the costs can be financially devastating. Not only can it lead to an expensive lawsuit, but your business’ hard-earned reputation may be damaged as a result.
That’s why professional indemnity insurance matters – for help protecting your assets and brand if your advice causes a client to take legal action against you.
Who should consider it?
Professional indemnity insurance is mandatory in some industries, such as medicine, accounting, law and financial advisers – with the requirements differing from state to state. But even in cases where it’s not required by law, it’s recommended for anyone who is providing professional services or advice in exchange for a fee – like, graphic designers, IT consultants and more.
Regardless of your legal obligation, it’s often a customer requirement that you have this cover in place.
