Professional Indemnity Insurance

Professional Indemnity Insurance protects you against claims made against you for loss suffered by a third party company arising out of you providing professional services.

Not only does it cover the claim for compensation, but it also covers the legal defence cost of dealing with it, from investigation to court hearings.

But how can a professional indemnity claim happen to you? Let’s say you advised a client to undertake necessary changes in their organisation, but your recommendation resulted in significant losses.

This is just one example of a potential issue that professional indemnity insurance can cover.

Public Liability Insurance

Public Liability Insurance safeguards you and your business from claims from a third party where your business has caused personal injury or property damage.

This insurance covers not only the claim for compensation if you are negligent but also the legal defence cost to deal with the matter.

For example, you a consulting business owner in Victoria whose employee caused damage to property while working? You can be held liable for this situation, and your public liability insurance policy can respond to the allegations accordingly.
