Professional Indemnity Insurance

Without Professional Indemnity Insurance companies are exposed and run the risk of being sued for multiple claims. Any claims which relate to past work or incidents that took place before cover was originally incepted may not be protected. It is important to check the Retro Active Date on a Professional Indemnity Insurance policy to ensure it matches the date the business commenced trading to ensure that past work undertaken is covered.
