Case Study

Michael is an engineer who designs the supporting foundations of a residential property. He makes an error with the site calculations – which leads to the slab cracking and damage to the property of the
owner. His company is liable for this loss, which could be anywhere between $150,000 to the full value of the house.

But, because Michael has professional indemnity insurance, he’s covered for this amount –as well as any legal expenses if the matter goes to court.

It’s important for certain businesses and industries to have professional indemnity insurance coverage. This includes, but is not limited to, the following industries.
