Why would I need Professional Indemnity?
Professional Indemnity FAQs
Any business can be accused of negligence and errors do happen sometimes, so all businesses benefit from professional indemnity cover. Although business-to-business companies are more likely to need it, all business owners should consider it.
What does professional indemnity protect me from? Professional indemnity cover protects your business in a lot of situations. If a client attempts to sue you because they don’t believe you offered the service that was advertised, for example, you will be covered. It can also protect you if you lose data or sensitive documentation or inadvertently breach intellectual property laws. Many businesses also use their professional indemnity insurance to manage the legal costs during libel cases.
Defamation is when false information is used to damage the character of an individual or an organisation. If the statement is written down, the term libel is used to describe it but if it is spoken, it is slander. If your business is involved in a defamation lawsuit, professional indemnity will cover you.
Negligence is defined as failing to perform responsibilities to the required standard or breaching a duty of care. From a business standpoint, this means failing to deliver a service as agreed upon with the client. If a client is unhappy with the service, they can raise a negligence claim against your business and demand compensation. They will then have to prove that you did not provide an adequate service.
A breach of confidentiality occurs when sensitive data is passed on to a third party without the consent of the data owner. Regardless of whether it is intentional or not, you may be sued if you share data that is not owned by you.
Yes. Any kind of business insurance is considered an expense and is tax deductible.
