The insurance you need will depend on the individual risks your business faces, but these are some covers that tend to be popular with civil engineers:
Professional indemnity insurance can cover you if your client sues you because you’ve made a mistake in your work. For example a fault in your design means a construction is flawed, and your client makes a compensation claim against you for the cost of redoing the work. Your professional indemnity insurance could cover the cost of the legal fees and compensation payment.
Public liability insurance protects you against compensation claims made by a third party for injury or damage, so it’s important for any business that comes into contact with members of the public. A compensation claim could be made by a client, a supplier, or a passerby who is affected by your business.
Employers’ liability insurance is usually a legal requirement for businesses that have staff. It can pay compensation claims if an employee sues you for work-related injury or illness.
The average insurance claim for civil engineers is £5,088 – could you afford this if the worst happened? (Average claim being £5,088. Based on data from 21 November 2018 - 20 November 2019, for comparison only. Cancellation charges may apply, please refer to our full terms & conditions.)
