Professional Indemnity Cover for Businesses in Scotland

We have many years of experience in helping Clients arrange the correct cover required for their business. We have access to the leading insurers and facilities who have products which can be specifically designed to cover your requirements.

Professional indemnity cover insures ‘professional’ persons or companies of their legal liabilities to third parties arising from their professional negligence or that of their employees.

This covers ‘loss arising from a breach of professional duty by reason of any negligent act, negligent error or negligent omission.

What should organisations be aware of?

There may be rules and minimum requirements of the Professional Body you are a member of.  If more than one regulator applies to your business, ensure that all of these bodies’ rules are complied with. Failure to do so can leave you open to investigation and, in some cases, fines for non-compliance.

You may have contractual requirements required for specific projects / contracts you are working on.  You should discuss these with your broker to ensure you have the right cover in place.

Professional Indemnity insurance is often written on a ‘claims made’ basis. So in the event of a claim it is the policy in force at the time the claim is made that would respond and not the policy in force at the time the error, omission or breach.  It is vital to consider previous contracts or work completed in previous years, to ensure that the scope of the cover continues to include all work previously carried out.

Professional Indemnity Insurance is a specialist class of insurance which requires care and expertise. If not understood, or placed incorrectly, your business could be left exposed to potentially crippling costs where the policy does not respond to historical claims.

Insurers generally take the view that they will accept claims arising from sensibly worded contractual agreements but this may in some cases need to be endorsed into the wording for cover to apply.  Others will address by setting out clearly the limits beyond which cover will not apply.  Some contracts can extend the liability of your business beyond the limitations of a standard policy which, if not picked up, can leave the business exposed.
