Communication Consultants Professional Indemnity insurance

Communication Consultants Professional Indemnity insurance

In terms of buying a Communication Consultants Professional Indemnity insurance policy, cover is normally seen as a relatively low risk profession.

In most cases Communication Consultants will work with marketing or communication departments or with individuals directly responsible for a company’s communication efforts.

As a Communication Consultant, you need to be careful when representing your client and communicating their message in any form to the public, as you could be liable to pay compensation for the financial loss the client can claim to have suffered, and any legal costs associated with defending an action.

A suitable professional Indemnity policy can take care of all this for you and give you the peace of mind that you are covered in the event of a claim against you for professional negligence.

The basic duties of a Communication Consultant include:

  • Provide superior Communication services in adherence to client culture and needs.
  • estimate client requirements and collaborate with team members to achieve client goals.
  • Suggest strategies to achieve client goals while not exceeding project budget.
  • Devise strategies to promote cash flow and curb expenses.
  • Provide consultation on client communication projects within given deadlines.
  • Ensure optimum use of resources and realisation of timelines in prioritising and authorising projects.
  • Establish communication ties with clients regarding services and concerns.
  • Guide business partners on specific needs of clients.
  • Contribute ideas and expertise in planning and implementing solutions for clients.
  • Devise and implement strategies for business development and expansion.

A Typical Media Professional Indemnity policy wording would be used for a Communications Consultant providing cover for:

  • Breach of civil liability
  • Negligent act error or omission
  • Unintentional intellectual property rights infringement (other than patents)
  • Unintentional breach of confidentiality
  • Unintentional defamation
  • Loss of third party documents or data
  • Computer virus transmission
  • Negligence of sub-contractors
  • Irrecoverable fees
  • Rectification and loss mitigation costs
  • Bodily injury or property damage arising from breach of professional duty
  • Defence costs
  • Court attendance costs.

The extensions of cover in respect of Irrecoverable fees and rectification and loss mitigation are of particular relevance as most media professionals will normally be in a position to fix a problem before it ever becomes apparent to their client. The end result is no third party claim for damages and therefore, under most policy wordings, no valid professional indemnity claim.

For this reason, it is essential that a suitable media wording is bought that includes cover for rectification and irrecoverable fees- also referred to as ‘First Party ‘cover.
