Professional Indemnity: Professional Indemnity Insurance refers to protection against incorrect or inadequate advice and services that you give. Unfortunately, any business can produce work resulting in both financial and reputational loss for their client and this is sometimes only uncovered long after the contract is completed. In this instance, your company can be held responsible which is when Professional Indemnity Insurance supports your business. At SJL Insurance Services, we provide insurance that can cover expenses, legal fees and pay outs incurred should an allegation be made against you by a client for providing an inadequate service.
