Professional Indemnity Insurance

Managing the responsibilities of your professional insurance can be straightforward when you know how, and at Shearwater, we do.

Identifying your professional scope

If you’ve reached professional status, you’ll be in a position where you feel confident in offering your clients good advice.

If a misjudgement or mistake on your part means that the advice you have given in fact falls below par, to the extent that your client loses out personally or financially, then you could have a problem on your hands. This is, unless you have a professional indemnity policy in place.

  • Compensation awards
  • Legal costs due to negligence
  • Cost of damages or correcting your actions
  • Alleged wrongful advice
  • Error or omission

Before the commercial team at Shearwater can work on pulling together all the right elements for your professional indemnity policy, we first need to establish just how much a claim would impact on your finances so we can adjust the indemnity limit accordingly.

Cover your advice

Even if you are resolute in your advice, you have to be prepared for the fact that one of your clients may think otherwise, whether you are a consultant, having drawn up architectural plans, or offered legal advice. Sometimes this will be a clear cut scenario, one in which you are more than happy to compensate for. Other times the origin of blame can be a little murky, in which case you will still need to pay for defence costs.
