What is Professional Indemnity Insurance?

A typical PI Insurance policy will provide cover for you against a financial loss arising from any claims for breach of duty, errors, omissions, or negligent advice you give which could result in financial loss. These can be made by your clients.

As a general rule, regulated professional bodies require their members to take out professional indemnity cover as a compulsory part of their commercial insurance. This also includes Run Off Cover. This is a type of professional indemnity insurance that occurs when a business or individual ceases trading.

What is the difference between public liability and professional indemnity insurance?

While similar, public liability insurance and professional indemnity insurance are not the same. The key difference is that public liability insurance is specific for claims made by the public for injury, illness or damage. Professional indemnity, by contrast, mainly covers claims made by clients in the case of professional mistakes or negligence on a business’ part.
