Cover for any costs awarded against you
Public liability, products liability and professional indemnity in one policy (check the policy wording for exclusions)
There is no cap on how much a compensation claim can be in the UK. This means a claim could be hundreds of thousands, even millions of pounds. Your policy can protect you against claims for compensation for financial loss suffered by your customers, up to the limit of indemnity.
As well as covering successful compensation claims against you, our policy can also cover you for the defence costs of an unsuccessful claim, including loss of earnings. If you suspect a claim is being raised, we’ve teamed up with a 24-hour helpline service which can provide instant, impartial advice.
We offer policies designed for therapists, trainers, consultants and hundreds of other professions, meaning you can be confident you have the right cover. We can also source discounts for many of our customers who belong to professional organisations and industry bodies.
Professional indemnity forms a vital part of our liability package, which also includes: public liability, employers’ liability, products liability and libel and slander cover. With our package, your business is covered against a range of legal related risks.
For their own liability reasons you are unlikely to find an insurance company who will advise you exactly on how much cover you need. It is essentially your responsibility to take out adequate cover although our advisors can go through your options over the phone and explain how you might want to calculate this cost. Alternatively, many industry organisations or professional bodies will likely be able to offer your some advice.
Professionals who send out products, offer advice of some kind, or provide some services from their own home can still cause harm for which they may be liable. For this reason it’s important you don’t make an assumption that you can’t do any damage when tucked away in your own home, and speak with an advisor about your risks.
When you stop trading or retire we recommend you still have something called ‘run off’ cover. This means that claims raised against you for an event that happened while you were still trading are covered (a claim can be raised any time up to 3 years after the fact). When you are ready we can arrange cover for you for this.
Many of our customers can get a discount on their insurance simply by being a member of a professional association or industry body. What’s more, for many of these, we also offer profession specific policies too. This means you can get specific cover with great discounts! Speak to one of our advisors to find out how much you can save.
If you would prefer to spread the cost of your professional indemnity trade insurance policy, you have the option of setting up a Direct Debit to pay your premium by monthly instalments through our preferred provider, Premium Credit Limited (PCL).
When you need to make a claim, we’ll guide you through the process and get your claim settled as quickly as possible.
