Professional Indemnity Details

Professional Indemnity Information

Professional indemnity insurance can help protect your business if a client claims there's a problem with the work you’ve done for them. It can cover your costs if you need to pay compensation to correct a mistake or settle a claim, and covers the cost of your legal defence.

Professional indemnity insurance can provide invaluable cover to businesses providing professional advice or services to clients which could be challenged. From business consultants to technology firms and accountants, Brady Insurance will help you tailor your professional indemnity cover for the risks you face. 

Without it, you could be liable for thousands of euros worth of legal fees and compensation payments payable to your client if you are found to have been negligent in your services to them.
