What is professional indemnity insurance?

Professional indemnity insurance is designed to cover your legal costs if you find yourself the subject of litigious action – resulting from advice or guidance you’ve given in your professional capacity.

If you’re a contractor, you could also do design work. If a client feels you’ve provided them with substandard advice, products or services that caused them to lose money, you may end up facing legal action. When this happens, they could claim for negligence or breach of professional duty. Professional Indemnity insurance is there to protect you.
