What cover can professional indemnity insurance offer?
If you're responsible for causing financial loss to your client due to error or omission in the advice, services or designs you have provided, your professional indemnity (PI) policy will protect you. Legal costs and expenses involved in defending a claim, as well as compensation payable, will be covered.
As an architect, you strive to avoid making mistakes, but occasionally they do happen. PI insurance protects you and your business if your client alleges a financial loss for:
- a breach of a professional duty of care or unintentional breach of contract
- unintentional breach of confidentiality or copyright
- loss of documents or data.
Just as your clients have individual needs, not all PI insurance is the same. We can arrange a policy that provides the right protection you need to support your clients with confidence. You'll receive these benefits as standard on most PI policies:
- capped excess
- free tax advice helpline for you and on behalf of your clients
- interest-free instalment facility
- dedicated claims team
- free 24-hour legal and counselling advice helplines for all partners.
Policy exclusions and restrictions may exist based on your unique requirements.
