Professional Indemnity Insurance
Professional Indemnity insurance (PI) covers a business against compensation sought by a client if mistakes have been made or there is negligence, data loss or where there are allegations of poor business advice.
Any business providing a professional service that can be challenged is vulnerable to a claim of negligence when their advice or service fails to meet a client’s expectations, which can be costly and disruptive.
Professions such as architects, consultants, surveyors, engineers and designers along with an ever-increasing list of other business activities are required by their professional bodies or regulators to have PI insurance as a necessary coverage as part of their overall insurance needs.
Many other businesses choose to take our PI insurance to protect themselves against claims.
