Frequently asked questions

Q
What insurance does a civil engineering contractor need?
A
As a civil engineer, you need to have public liability insurance in place to protect against risks that may cause injury to the public or your customers. If you employ staff, you're legally required to have employers liability insurance. You may also consider other types of protection, including your tools and your equipment.
Q
Do civil engineering contractors need public liability insurance?
A
Accidents happen. Every day, as a civil engineer, you and your business are exposed to risks that may cause injury to the public, your customers, as well as property damage. You need to protect yourself against third-party claims arising from these situations. Public liability insurance will cover legal defence costs and compensation costs should you find yourself facing a claim.
Q
Do civil engineering contractors need professional indemnity insurance?
A
Sometimes projects don't go to plan. As a civil engineer, you are liable to pay any legal defence costs and any compensation relating to claims of errors in the design or construction of your project or expenses relating to re-doing the project. Professional indemnity for civil engineers will protect against these costs if a claim is made against you.
