We understand that navigating building designer’s professional indemnity insurance can be complex, stressful and time consuming. We also recognise that not all building designers do the same thing; that your business is unique with its own set of needs and requirements. As your insurance broker, we will focus on relationship first – understanding who you are and what your company does. This will allow us to accurately present your business and its risk to insurers, and secure competitive quotes on this basis. From here, we will make recommendations as to which insurance policy best suits your needs, ensuring that you are appropriately covered in the event of a claim.
Defence & Investigation Costs
PROFESSIONAL INDEMNITY INSURANCE
Building Designers operate in a high-risk industry, where claims occur at an above-average frequency, and have the potential to amount to substantial losses. Some examples of situations where a building designer may be held liable include:
Protection against claims of negligence: Professional indemnity insurance can provide coverage for legal costs and any settlements or awards made against the building designer if they are alleged to have failed to exercise reasonable care and skill in the performance of their professional duties.
Coverage for breach of contract: If a building designer is alleged to have failed to fulfill the terms of a contract, such as failing to meet project deadlines or not complying with the client's specifications, professional indemnity insurance can provide coverage for the legal costs and any settlements or awards made against the building designer.
Loss of documents: Coverage for any financial losses incurred by a third party as a result of the building designer’s loss of important documents or data.
Intellectual property infringement: If a building designer is alleged to have used someone else's protected intellectual property, such as a patented design, without permission, professional indemnity insurance can provide coverage for the legal costs and any settlements or awards made against the building designer.
Failure to comply with regulations: A client may claim that a building designer failed to comply with regulations, resulting in delays, as well as fines or other penalties.
