Insurance Made Easy
Professional Indemnity Insurance is a form of liability insurance that helps protect professionals when providing advice and service from the cost of defending against a negligence claim made by a client and if damages are awarded in such a civil lawsuit. Cover is provided for alleged failure to provide services either by error or omission resulting in a client suffering a financial loss. Professional Indemnity Insurance also provides for the defence costs, including when legal action turns out to be groundless.
Public Liability Insurance protects your business for negligence which results in someone being injured or someone’s property being damaged. With society becoming more litigious, it is important that you can go about your day to day business activities with the security provided by this cover.
Other insurance we can assist with; General Property, Income Protection, Life Insurance, Management Liability, Office and Property Insurance and Corporate Travel. For more enquiries call 1800 641 260 or visit http://imeinsurance.com.au
