Frequently asked questions
I need professional indemnity insurance to secure a contract - do you provide proof of cover?
Yes. If you purchase your policy with us, you’ll instantly receive the documents via email. They include a dedicated 'Confirmation of Liability Insurance' document (detailing the cover you have with us), which you can present as proof of cover.
Is my past work covered?
If you have held professional indemnity insurance uninterrupted prior to arranging your policy with us, we will be happy to cover past work.
However, if for any reason you have not had professional indemnity insurance in place for a period of time – if you’ve never arranged it, allowed cover to lapse, or cancelled a previous policy – we won’t be able to cover past work.
Don't hesitate to call us on 0800 640 6600 if you require further clarification.
What limit of cover should I choose?
You’ll be required by many clients and regulated industry bodies to have a minimum level of cover before you can undertake a contract. Therefore, it’s worth checking before you arrange cover.
If it’s the first time you’ve arranged cover, or aren’t sure of the details, think about a potential worst-case scenario and weigh up the likely costs involved in correcting your mistake. Markel offers a wide range of limits, so you’re sure to find the level of cover that suits.
What's the difference between professional indemnity and public liability?
Professional indemnity insurance is a type of cover taken to protect you - and your reputation - against allegations of professional negligence. If you were to make an error or mistake during the course of working for a client, you would be covered for any costs sought.
Public liability insurance is different. It’s used to cover against allegations of injury or illness caused to third parties by your negligence, including slips, trips and falls that are associated with personal injury claims. In addition, public liability insurance covers against damage to third party property such as a client-owned laptop or smartphone.
It's important to consider arranging both types so you’re properly protected.
