Why do you need professional indemnity insurance?
Insurance brokers provide specialist advice that comes with a risk of being held to account for a client’s financial loss, should negligent advice be given. Professional indemnity insurance (PII) will protect your business if it is found liable for any compensation payable to the claimant and any legal costs incurred defending the claim.
