What is Professional Indemnity Insurance?


Also known as an errors and omissions (E&O) policy, this policy provides insurance against legal liability arising out of errors, omissions or negligence while rendering a service. It is taken by professionals including(but not limited to) doctors, engineers, architects, chartered accountants, lawyers, interior decorators and management consultants.

Many companies who outsource or subcontract require this of their vendors as part of the contract.
