Professional Indemnity Insurance

Keeping your business safe

If you provide advice or services in your work, it’s important to protect your business against claims of malpractice or professional misconduct. That’s why we offer professional indemnity insurance as part of our industry-specific business insurance packages.
 
These packages are tailored to meet the unique requirements of your business. As well as professional indemnity insurance, they may also include product liability insurance and public liability insurance cover.

    What is professional indemnity insurance?

    Professional indemnity insurance is designed for professionals who provide advice or services to their customers. It protects your business against legal costs and claims by third parties for damages arising from acts, omissions or breaches of professional duty in the course of your business.
     
    In real terms, this means that if you do something (or neglect to do something) in the course of your work, and a customer suffers injury or financial loss as a result, they may take legal action against you. With the right policy, you can defend your business against the claim and prevent financial loss.

    Do I need Professional Indemnity Insurance?

    It costs time and money to defend against a claim of malpractice, professional misconduct, or breach of duty. You could be held responsible not only for your own actions, but also for those of your partners, employees or volunteers.
     
    A professional indemnity insurance policy safeguards your business by providing cover against such claims, including legal defence costs. So you can confidently go about your work, knowing that if the worst happens, we’ll be in your corner.
     
    For many professions, the associated governing body sets strict guidelines specifying a level of professional indemnity insurance cover that is required to trade. We work with many of Australia’s membership bodies and industry associations to provide business insurance that fulfils our customers’ needs, as well as relevant legislative requirements.
