Guide to professional liability insurance

Even though professional liability insurance is not always a legal requirement, it is always worth considering.

The sad reality is that mistakes do happen. If your business is in a bit of a mess, the costs associated with these mistakes can be very difficult to recoup if you don’t have the right legal protection.

So, what exactly is professional liability insurance?

Professional liability insurance protects you against legal defense costs as well as any compensation or costs that may be granted as a result of an alleged act, error or omission in the performance of your professional services. . Without it, you could be held liable for thousands of dollars in legal fees and compensation as a result, not to mention the loss of time spent defending yourself.

The undeniable advantages

  • Enjoy peace of mind knowing that a legal professional will be there to deal with any allegation made against you.
