What is Professional Indemnity Insurance?

A typical Professional Indemnity Insurance policy will provide cover for you against a financial loss arising from any claims for breach of duty (which may be made by your clients), for any errors, omissions or negligent advice you may give to a client which leads to a financial loss resulting in a claim against you.

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