Professional indemnity insurance helps to protect your business and prevent financial loss
If you don’t provide the correct professional advice or treatment to a client and they are negatively impacted, there is a chance that they will take legal action against you. It’s an unfortunate reality that just one small mistake, error of judgement, injury or perceived piece of bad advice can lead to a claim against your business or against you personally – and potentially cost you both professionally and financially.
Professional indemnity insurance can act as a safety net to provide protection from the costs associated with any claims (including legal costs and any damages awarded).
