“In today’s litigation culture, this form of insurance is becoming increasingly relevant. Professional indemnity insurance is designed to protect you in the event of a dissatisfied client claiming that your professional skill is inadequate. It provides financial support for defence costs, withheld fees and any compensation which may be awarded against you**. Put simply it is financial protection against professional error. Despite best intentions, no one is immune to mistakes or accusations of mistakes, Professional Indemnity insurance tackles the consequences of these errors."CCV Southampton
