Why do I need contractor and freelancer insurance?
Being your own boss exposes you to risks you wouldn't face as a traditional employee. Find out what type of cover you might want to consider.
Mistakes in the services you provide
Clients pay for your knowledge and expertise, but what if you make a mistake? If your advice doesn't work out as expected, you could face a lawsuit, with legal costs and compensation to pay. If that happens, professional indemnity cover (PI) will ensure you're protected. Plus, clients may insist you have it – so it could help you win assignments (or not lose them!)
Cyber and data threats
If you work remotely and handle a lot of client data then you could be at risk of a cyber-attack or data breach. Cyber insurance for freelancers will protect you for a breach of data protection laws (where insurable by law) and your liability for handling data, as well as cover for extortion, system rectification costs, plus PR expenses and financial loss due to system downtime.
Moments of clumsiness
Our public liability insurance for freelancers will protect you if you cause injury or property damage to a third party, either at your home office, co-working space, at a client's office, or when out and about. It's also worth bearing in mind that some of your clients, or even suppliers, might ask you to have PL, so make sure your minimum cover limit meets their requirements as well as your own.
Tools of the trade
Whatever kit you rely on, whether that's a laptop, filming equipment or more technical machinery, having it lost, stolen or damaged will leave you high and dry. With our freelance contents insurance and equipment cover, we'll replace your gear and have you back up and running in no time. And unlike with many providers, being based in a co-working space is no problem.
