How does a Professional Indemnity Insurance policy work?

The PI Insurance policy reacts to defend you from a claim made against you by your client, for example, if the client was unhappy with your advice, which they consider had caused them a loss, they may well appoint a solicitor to request a payment back from you for those losses. Your insurer would appoint a claims handler or a solicitor directly to defend your position in these matters, after all you may not be to blame for that client’s losses at all.

It is of critical importance that you maintain continuous PI insurance if this is a coverage you need, as the indemnity is on a ‘claims made’ basis and any gaps in time could result in an exposure.

How much Professional Indemnity cover will my business need?

The amount of cover your business needs depends entirely on the type of services it provides, so there is no general rule of thumb for how much cover your business will need. You know your business best and the sort of exposure it faces

When deciding on the amount of professional indemnity cover to have you should consider the value of the work you are doing for your clients and the potential impact on them should it go wrong. Other than that, it’s advisable to buy as much cover as you can afford

Sometimes your client will set a minimum limit of the indemnity they require before you can work with them. This can depend on the specific nature of the services you’ve been contracted to provide, or they could have a set limit for all their service providers.

It is also worth considering taking retroactive cover for work that you’ve already completed before the policy commences. This means that your professional indemnity insurance policy will cover you for any claims arising out of work you completed in the past. You will be given the option of taking out retroactive cover when you get your professional indemnity insurance quote.
