What is Professional Indemnity Insurance?

Professional Indemnity insurance indemnifies professionals against their legal liability to third parties for injury, loss or damage arising from their negligent acts errors or omissions committed in the course of their professional duties.

The main features of professional indemnity insurance:-

  • Professional indemnity insurance covers the firm and not the interests of their client or third parties
  • The policy will only pay when the liability of the claimant has been established
  • The duration of the policy is usually one year
  • Premiums represent a significant cost in a firm’s running costs
  • The policy will cover the cost of legal defence in the event of a claim being made
  • Professional indemnity insurance is written on a “claims made” basis. This means that cover relates to claims or potential claims against the firm notified during the period of insurance, irrespective of when the alleged negligent act or omission occurred (subject to the application of a retroactive date).
