Frequently asked questions
Do you provide proof of cover for H&S insurance?
Yes. If you need professional indemnity insurance to secure a contract, when you purchase your policy with us, your documents are emailed to you instantly and include a dedicated 'Confirmation of Liability Insurance' document detailing the cover you have with us. This can be presented to agencies and clients as proof of cover.
Is my past work covered?
We cover past work if you have held professional indemnity insurance uninterrupted prior to arranging your policy with us.
If there was a period where you did not have professional indemnity insurance in force, we are unable to cover past work. This includes if you have never arranged professional indemnity insurance before, you chose not to renew a previous policy, or you cancelled a previous policy at the end of a contract.
If you require further clarification, don't hesitate to call us on 0800 640 6600.
What's the difference between professional indemnity and public liability?
Professional indemnity insurance covers against allegations of professional negligence. This means you would be covered if you made an error or mistake in a piece of work (such as a project or report) for a client.
Public liability insurance covers against allegations of injury or illness caused to third parties by your negligence. This includes many of the slips, trips and falls that are associated with personal injury claims. Public liability insurance also covers against damage to third party property – for example, if you were to damage a client-owned laptop or smartphone.
As they insure against different scenarios, it's important you consider arranging both types of cover to ensure you are properly protected.
How much cover is right for my business?
Regulated industry bodies and many clients will need you to have arranged a minimum level of cover before awarding you work, so it's worth checking these figures before you arrange cover.
If it's the first time you have arranged cover, or you aren't sure of the specifics, think about the costs involved in putting right the mistakes in a worst-cast scenario. We offer a range of limits on insurance, so you're sure to find the right cover for your business.
