How Insurance Can Work for Your Design Professionals Practice
Insurance for engineers, architects, surveyors and other professionals protects you if a client takes legal action over a mistake you or an employee made or are alleged to have made. Insurance may be needed in situations where a client contends financial loss stemming from:
- Recklessness: When a client alleges you did not take due care with the quality of designs or made careless mistakes, this coverage can protect you by paying for any damages awarded and paying for defense costs.
- Broken Promises: Sometimes, design and build projects take longer than expected due to circumstances beyond your control. If your company does not fulfill a promise, a client can sue, alleging the broken promise resulted in financial losses. In these cases, insurance can cover your legal defense and any damages awarded.
- Mistakes or Incorrect Designs: If a design proves to be not up to code, poorly implemented, inadequate or otherwise fails to meet specific standards, the legal costs can be significant. Insurance can help cover you in these circumstances.
Protecting You Investments
While designers, architects, engineers and other professionals in this sector have extensive training, mistakes can still occur. Unfortunately, when miscommunication or misaligned expectations occur, legal action is an all-too-common result. In these situations, insurance for architects and other design professionals protects you by paying for defense costs — even in false claims — and any damages awarded.
