Why get professional indemnity insurance?

Let's talk about professional indemnity insurance

Why professional indemnity insurance?

Does your business or profession offer advice or provide services to other businesses? Do you handle a client's data or copyright materials? If so then you may need professional indemnity insurance in Ireland. You could be exposed to claims from clients or members of the public for a breach of your professional duty of care. No one expects to make mistakes but even for the biggest of firms, faults can happen and therefore you could be held liable for financial loss suffered by your clients as a result of your work and advice. PI insurance will provide that cover you need.

Are you a professional indemnity owner?

What type of cover do I need?

Professional indemnity insurance, also termed PI insurance or indemnity insurance can protect you against claims made for compensation by third parties for problems with work you have done for them. Even if you haven't done anything wrong, the PI policy will cover the legal costs of getting your business in the clear. A professional indemnity policy should cover you if you were responsible for loss of money, professional negligence, defamation and libel, loss of documents and data, and unintentional breach of copyright.

What does professional indemnity insurance cover?

Professional indemnity insurance provides cover for: professional negligence if you give incorrect advice or make a mistake; defamation if you support or produce false statements about your client; breach of confidentiality such as sharing sensitive information with permissions; breach of copyright such as using images without permission; and lost or damaged goods or data.

How much PI insurance cover do I need?

PI insurance cover can range from €50,000 to millions, therefore it will depend on your specific business needs and it can be a difficult question to answer. You should ask yourself what the total value of the information or property you'll be handling is? If you are an accountant or a solicitor working with large businesses, you should ensure you are covered for any potential loss that might occur. Some contracts with your customers or suppliers will specify a level of cover required. Many professional services firms are members of professional bodies and institutes, who will normally specify a minimum level of cover as the industry standard. Speak to our partner brokers to discuss your business needs today.

How much does professional indemnity insurance cost?
