Professional Indemnity Insurance

Professional Indemnity Insurance

Coverforce have two Professional Indemnity Insurance policies available to The Co-Operative. One is supported by CGU Insurance, a local Australian Insurer. The other is supported by Lloyds of London.

These schemes provide your business with cover in the event of a claim of professional negligence. This is important as a franchise owner who sells their business could still be sued many years later over matters they may have been responsible for whilst in the business. Under normal circumstances, run off insurance could cost the equivalent of approximately 4-5 years of annual premiums.

Cover includes:

  • Costs incurred to investigate a claim
  • Legal costs incurred to defend the Insured
  • Costs to dispose of a claim for which either a settlement has been reached or for which you have been found liable by the courts.
