Professional Indemnity is there to protect you from the common pitfalls that many freelancers encounter. That includes unpaid invoices (if your client refuses to pay and threatens to bring a claim against you, professional indemnity can cover the amount owed to you), work that doesn’t meet client expectations and if a client threatens legal action against you. Professional indemnity covers your defence costs associated with a claim, as well as compensation if your client claims to suffer a financial loss as a result of your work.
If your client claims your work doesn’t meet their expectations.
Refusal to pay
If clients refuse to pay and threaten to bring a claim against you.
If you unintentionally infringe on someone else’s property.
If you make a mistake or give ill-informed advice.
If you unintentionally damage a client’s reputation. Defamation, libel, slander…
If you lose or mishandle sensitive client data.
Many freelancers don’t have the cash to replace their equipment if it's damaged or stolen. With contents insurance, you’ll be able to buy new tools, keep working on that project — and hit that deadline.
Damage or theft
Cracked laptop screens, dropped cameras, stolen equipment.
Your equipment will be insured when travelling abroad.
Not just computers

If someone has an accident on your work premises and you're legally obligated to pay expenses.
If you have an accident that causes physical damage to third-party property.
Trips. slips and falls
If someone sustains an injury during the course of your professional services.
