Hong kong notes


What is Professional Indemnity Insurance?

In Insurance a general Public Liability insurance policy will normally protect individuals and businesses against their liability to the general public for the costs involved with an accident which results in actual bodily harm. Additionally, an employer’s liability to their workers will generally be covered under an Employee Compensation insurance plan. However, there are a number of risks encountered in the business world which are not covered under either of these two business insurance plans.

This demands the availability of a specialized form of Business indemnity insurance which has been designed to protect against risks which result in claims that are unrelated to bodily injury.

Case Study

Professional Indemnity Insurance Examples

Example 1: Construction Indemnity Insurance

A construction company builds an apartment block for a client. However, shortly after completion a number of major errors are found which leave the building unsuitable for habitation. This requires the demolition of the building, and the consequent reconstruction to rectify the problems. No one is hurt, but the client of the company suffers a severe financial loss and files a claim for compensation against the construction firm.

In this case a Professional Indemnity Insurance policy would normally provide coverage for the costs of the legal defense, and the liability of the construction company towards their customer's financial loss.

Example 2: Financial Services Indemnity Insurance

A customer contracts an Accounting firm to advise on a Tax problem. The accountant provides advice which later turns out to be incorrect, leading to the customer paying a large fine from the Revenue service. This results in the customer filing a claim for compensation against the Accounting firm for the losses incurred.

A Professional Indemnity Insurance policy would normally cover the costs associated with the legal defense of the Accounting firm and the firm’s liability towards the customer’s loss resulting from the faulty information.
