PI insurance safeguards against catastrophic losses in the event of a legal action due to a negligent act, error or omission by the professional. In addition to claims of error, omission or negligence, PI insurance may also protect against slander, libel and breach of contract.
Whether a traditional or new professional, PI provides cover for anyone who gives advice, makes educated recommendations, designs solutions, or represents the needs of others. Professionals such as accountants, engineers, IT consultants, software developers, planners, estate agents and contractors are prime candidates for carrying PI insurance.
The main reasons professionals seek out PI insurance include the following:
There is no standard policy when it comes to PI insurance which is why it’s best to speak to an experienced broker who understands your company and can knowledgeably design a policy to meet your needs.
