It is necessary for every business to take control of their financial destinies and eliminate every possibility of incurring heavy financial losses should they face claims of professional negligence, injuries or damages to third party property. Empire Insurance services have tailored packages that will offer the ultimate protection in the advent of such claims. One such policies that we offer to businesses and professionals is the professional indemnity insurance. This should be a must if you or your business offers advice and services to clients.

What is Professional indemnity insurance

The essence of professional indemnity insurance is to offer you with financial protection should you make mistakes that leads to damages to the clients property or leads to them making financial losses. It is designed for businesses or professionals who offer advice or professional services to other businesses.

With the current crop of clients, the only remedy for them is to sue the professional in order to recover some of the losses they incurred due to the professional negligence.
