Most professionals normally undertake their responsibilities pretty well and perform their duties according to their clients’ expectations. However, should the design fail or there are shortcomings in performing their planning duties, the Professional Indemnity Insurance is called upon to provide coverage. This brief ½ day program will provide a few basic pointers on the PI policy coverage and details how coverage is provided when there is a claims notification.
