Why you need project managers insurance
Because your business provides a professional service providing forms of advice, your clients have an expectation of receiving expert guidance and a good service. If this service is not given or if a client of yours believes that it hasn’t been given, then they could make a legal claim against you.
As a project manager, your services will be pivotal in successfully shaping a business and its projects, meaning that the potential cost to your business if a claim is made can be high. As well as any resulting legal expenses there could also be compensation costs to pay if a claim against you is successful, both of which could be detrimental to your business.
The Insurance Octopus can add cover for your business equipment at home, in the office or while on the move, as well as provide options for covering you in sector specific situations as required. We will help you to put together a business insurance package specifically tailored to your business needs by working with a selection of UK insurers who provide the widest choice of PI insurance. It couldn’t be easier to get covered.

How project managers insurance works
Examples of Project managers insurance in action
A nightmare project
Nothing was going right for a project manager when she managed to mislay some vital documents at an airport. Even worse, the documents fell into the hands of a competitor of the company that she was performing freelance work for. This led to major consequences and the client taking legal action against the project manager. Much to her relief, she found that she was able to call on professional indemnity insurance to cover the significant costs that arose from this.
