You may be aware that there are different kinds of business insurance available on the market, which can end up a little confusing as to which one you should decide to pick. However, Proper Finance is here to help you out. In this guide, we are going to tell you everything you need to know about professional indemnity insurance.
Professional indemnity insurance is specifically designed in order to help you cover the cost of compensation claims that could end up being made against you by a client. Why may this happen? It could very well happen for a number of reasons. For example, you could have a compensation claim filed against you because their company has suffered as a result of your work or professional advice that was given.
It is not necessarily the case that this kind of business insurance is required for all companies. This is because it will depend on the kind of work you typically do, as well as the industry you work in. However, generally speaking, you may well require professional indemnity insurance if you work in the following professions:
When we speak about doctors or nurses potentially needing professional indemnity insurance, we specifically refer to those in the private sector. This is because if you work only in the NHS, then you will find it is usually the case that your practice will have already covered you. Nevertheless, don’t take this for granted: always check that this is the case, or you may have to take out this kind of insurance for yourself.
You may very well be asking yourself the question as to what are the differences between these two categories of business insurance. Professional indemnity is cover for reputational or financial losses as a direct result of your work. Whilst public liability specifically covers you for physical property damage or injury as a result of the work you have carried out.
