Professional Indemnity Insurance:
How does Professional Indemnity Insurance work?
Professional Indemnity Insurance is a form of liability insurance that helps protect professionals when providing professional advice and services. The insurance has the provision for the cost of defending a negligence claim made against you and any damages awarded in a civil lawsuit.
The cover is provided for alleged failure to provide services either by error or omission resulting in a client suffering a financial loss.
Professional Indemnity Insurance also provides for the defence costs, including when the legal action turns out to be frivolous.

Should I take out Public Liability Insurance in addition to Professional Indemnity Insurance?
Public Liability Insurance protects your business for any negligence which results in either physical injury or property damage. With society becoming more litigious, it is important that you properly protect your business activities whether they are conducted on or off site.
A claim could result from a client tripping over your laptop cable during a presentation at their office and as a consequence suffering a loss of income due to time off work. In this particular circumstance, you may be deemed negligent and have damages awarded against you. In this particular instance, a Public Liability Insurance policy would respond. As this is not a Professional advice claim (such as that which may fall under a professional indemnity coverage) you would need a Public Liability Insurance policy which covers the cost of the claim after negligence has been established, or, if no negligence is involved, provide cover for the legal defence costs.
I am currently insured elsewhere if I move to IME Insurance Brokers will I be covered for my previous work?
Rest assured that the policy offered by Insurance Made Easy has full retroactive cover provided you have had continuous Professional Indemnity insurance. If a claim is made against you for negligence as a result of work undertaken during a previous period of insurance your new policy with Insurance Made Easy will provide full cover subject to the usual terms and conditions of the policy.
What happens if I decide to cease trading as a Mortgage Broker?
Under the statute of limitations, you may be liable for a claim up to 7 years after the fact. For no additional premium, Insurance Made Easy will cover you during this period from the date your policy ceases provided you no longer work as a self-employed Mortgage Broker. Simply contact Insurance Made Easy and we will make sure that you are covered.
