Who Needs Professional Liability Insurance?
Professional liability insurance protects qualified professionals such as doctors, lawyers, architects, estate agents or brokers – essentially anyone who provides a professional service for a fee. Attaining these positions requires a great deal of hard work and sacrifice, and so it is vital to protect your career, your assets and your reputation against potential damage.
Why Do You Need Professional Liability Insurance?
Unfortunately, no matter how conscientious you are, no matter how good your intentions may be, you just never know when you might find yourself facing a claim of negligence or malpractice. Even if the claims are completely unjustified, you will need to defend yourself against them – which is a costly process. With professional liability cover, you can rest assured that you have the provision to indemnify you against claims by third parties and associated defence costs.
Important Points About Professional Liability Insurance
Professional liability policies are generally set up on a claims-made basis, meaning that the policy only covers claims made during the policy period. The cause giving rise to the claim must have occurred after the coverage commenced. This means that if someone makes a claim against you after you have taken coverage, but the actual event to which the claim refers took place before the coverage started, you will not be covered for that claim. It is possible to make your coverage apply retroactively to events that occurred before the policy was in force. It is always best to select this type of cover to ensure that you are covered for all eventualities.
