In Ireland, it is often a requirement for some professions to have professional indemnity insurance. If you offer advice or consultation for a fee and that advice leads to a financial loss for your client, then you could be sued for negligence.
What does it cover?
Professional indemnity insurance offers you cover if your client alleges that you failed to perform your duty and/or caused them financial loss.
Some of the most ‘at risk’ professions include accountants, engineers, business consultants including I.T. and financial.
If you are alleged to fail to meet the brief, or it is alleged to be inaccurate or simply substandard you may have to defend these claims whether they are true or false.
These legal costs can be expensive and thankfully a good professional indemnity policy will cover the cost of your legal fees.
