Professional Indemnity Insurance protects against claims resulting from mistakes, omissions, or professional negligence that can occur despite the best precautions. It covers the costs of legal defence and any damages awarded, ensuring that an unforeseen mistake does not jeopardise your business’s financial health.

While not mandatory for all occupations, Professional Indemnity Insurance is highly recommended for all professionals, regardless of industry. Specific clients or professional associations may require it as part of their contractual agreements.

Choosing the right level of coverage involves understanding the specific risks associated with your business activities. Cowden’s professional insurance brokers can provide expert guidance, helping assess your risk exposure and select the appropriate level of coverage. As a guide, for small to medium businesses, levels of cover vary from $1 million to $10 million

Professional Indemnity Insurance covers claims arising from professional advice or services, while Public Liability Insurance covers injury or damage to third parties or their property.

It's advisable to review your coverage annually or when significant changes to your business operations, services, or risk exposure occur.

The cost is influenced by your profession, the size of your business, the level of risk involved, the amount of coverage needed, and your claims history.

Claims-made means you are covered for claims made against you during the current period of insurance, regardless of the date when the incident occurred. This is why it’s important to notify claims as soon as you first become aware.
