Graphic Designers Professional Indemnity Insurance

Graphic Designers Professional Indemnity Insurance

Hensure Business Insurance is an expert in Graphic Designers Professional Indemnity Insurance. We have developed our own scheme for Professional Indemnity insurance underwritten by Lloyds of London.

The advantage of our scheme facility is that there is no need to fill in any lengthy proposal forms . We also have access to a number of other Professional Indemnity markets if the risk profile of your particular business does not fit with our scheme underwriting criteria.

If you make a mistake in the work that you do, regardless of mitigating circumstances, then this could open the door to a potential claim being made against you for negligence as the following example claim highlights:

A Graphic Designer was briefed by their client to design labels for various goods that were to be kept outside and exposed to the elements. The remit was made clear to the graphic designer that the labels would need to be able to withstand exposure to the elements.

The labels did not survive the test of time; the ink ran, rendering them useless to the client. The client lost money and took legal action against the Graphic Designer for professional negligence. The Graphic Designer’s Professional Indemnity insurance policy covered their legal costs and compensation payments to the client. The claim eventually settled at £ 25,000 including the solicitors fees.

If this had been your firm and the claim had been made against you would you have the financial means to defend such a claim? Think about the costs involved in recruiting a specialist firm of solicitors to defend your position?

A suitable Graphic Designers Professional Indemnity Insurance 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.

Professional Indemnity insurance protects you or your business against claims relating to negligence, errors, mistakes and breach of professional duty that you make which cause your clients a financial loss.

There are a number of factors to consider when purchasing Professional Indemnity insurance:

  • What excess are you prepared to consider? Higher excesses can lead to more competitive premiums but would mean you would have to pay more out of your own pocket in the event of a claim.
  • The Limit of Indemnity required. This is the maximum amount of money that your Professional Indemnity policy will pay out. This will need to be high enough to cover you in the event of a claim.
  • The cover –is it on a full civil liabilities basis or does it just look to cover your errors and omissions?
  • Is the cover on an’ any one claim ‘basis or in the ‘aggregate’? With any one claim every single claim that you make during the insurance year is entitled to the full indemnity limit. With aggregate cover each claim is paid out of the specified indemnity limit and this means that there is less money then left in ‘ the pot’ to cover any subsequent claims.

If you have not had Professional Indemnity Insurance before then the retroactive date of the policy is going to be the inception date of the policy.

It is important to understand that Professional Indemnity policies are written on what is called a ‘claims made’ basis. This means that they provide cover for claims made against you during the policy period (ie after the inception or renewal date) that relate to work that you have done at any time after the Retroactive date. If this is the renewal of your policy and you are just looking for an alternative quotation, then you will need to ensure that the retroactive date mirrors the date from your current policy or else you will not have cover for your past work.

The Professional Indemnity cover provided under our scheme is on an’ any one claim’ basis and we have developed a specific wording that is appropriate for media professionals that includes the following cover;

  • 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
