What is Professional Indemnity?

If you’re a contractor working within domestic or commercial construction, you may be responsible for design work as part of your business. Sometimes your clients may feel like they didn’t get what they paid for or what was promised in your contract. When this happens, they may bring a claim of negligence or breach of professional duty against you. Design & Construct Professional Indemnity insurance is designed to protect you against any sum (up to the limit of indemnity) resulting from these sorts of claims.

Securing your finances

Whether it’s negligence, breach of duty or rectification costs, professional indemnity claims can come with a serious financial backlash. Our cover is designed to keep your business secure in all of these scenarios and more, getting you back up and running as soon as possible. We’ll aim to cover your legal expenses and compensation claims if you’re found to be in the wrong. That way your Design & Construct business can continue to run smoothly.

Protecting your reputation

We know how important a good reputation is for the Design & Construct business. At Trade Direct Insurance we have specialist claims teams on hand to guide you through each step of your claim. Our goal is to have your legal disagreements settled quickly and correctly so your professional relationships and reputation aren’t affected.
