NEWA Experts Risk Everything Without PII Cover

The Supreme Court's 2011 decision to remove blanket immunity for Expert Witnesses makes it more important than ever before to have Professional Indemnity cover for this work. Solicitors are increasingly requiring experts to demonstrate that they have adequate Expert Witness PII cover before they will consider instructing them, yet many still do not arrange insurance protection.

How the policies work and 'claims made' cover

Professional Indemnity insurance is arranged on a ‘claims made’ basis, which means that the policy will deal with any claim you first become aware of during the period of insurance, no matter when the work giving rise to the claim was performed. If you allow your Professional Indemnity insurance to lapse, and then become aware of a potential claim after cover has expired, you would be left without protection. It is therefore vital to maintain continuous protection against liabilities that might arise from your past projects after you have discontinued the work.
