Professional Indemnity Insurance

For professionals who provide advice or a service to their clients

Professional Indemnity Insurance

Professional Indemnity (PI) insurance protects you against claims from professional misconduct based on advice or services you have provided to clients and employees. Claims most typically arise from allegations of professional negligence and misleading/deceptive conduct, where a client has suffered financial loss, bodily injury or property damage. As you can imagine, the penalties on you can be significant.

Some professionals, for example medical doctors/nurses/allied health are required legally to have professional indemnity insurance in order to practice in Australia. But no matter what industry you are in, if you are a professional who gives advice or provides a service for your work, you run the risk of being sued. And for this reason it is important that you protect yourself and your business in the unfortunately event that somebody makes a claim against you. We’ll make sure your assets and your reputation is protected, so that you can go about your day confident in giving others valuable advice and services.
