Professional Indemnity Insurance

Protection against errors, omissions and accusations of negligence

Giving advice for a living can be perilous – you are only as good as your last client, and getting sued would be seriously damaging, to both your reputation and personal financial wellbeing. That’s why complete confidence in your insurance is as important as confidence in your own abilities. 

At Howden, we have a range of specialist teams so that you can be assured your policy has been worded by someone who truly understands your industry – and the complex risks you face.   

What does a Professional Indemnity (PI) insurance policy cover?

Professional indemnity insurance (PI) is there for you when you make a mistake for which you are sued or investigated (or both).

Whether you’re a project manager or consultant, PI supports you in two main areas:

  1. Covers costs associated with regulatory hearings, including defence costs
  2. Pay any damages or settlements

People who sell themselves as having a certain skill set or expertise put their careers on the line every time they meet a client. When you take action on their behalf, you risk being sued.  

Defence is vital when allegations are unfounded – your future prosperity depends on it. But if allegations are justified, then insurance is especially important.

You will need to assemble an experienced legal team at considerable expense - and even then, you may be liable for damages or need to settle out of court.
