Engineering in Australia is typically considered a more complex industry, especially in today’s increasingly regulated landscape. Engineering consultants, builders, designers from across a wide range of disciplines are liable to claims related to breach of Professional Duty, Property Damage or Personal Injury, as well as legal liabilities incurred in the claims process.

Engineers are not a commodity and your insurance should extend the maximum support to nurture the innovator within you. We pride ourselves on our client-centric approach, building long-term relationships and closely working with you to accurately assess your potential risk exposure and structure insurance policies around your business requirements and the complexities within your engineering speciality.

ProfCover offers tailored solutions that will ensure you are adequately covered, supporting you in your ground-breaking pursuits. We go the extra mile for our clients – you can trust us to be there for you.


Professional Indemnity Insurance for Engineer

Why do you need it?

An Engineering professional, in holding himself or herself out as the possessor of expert knowledge and special skills not shared by the rest of the population, owes a duty to his or her clients to exercise that degree of care and skill which is to be expected of a person in that particular profession.

If the said Engineering professional, in rendering his or her services, fails to exercise the required level of care and skill and this results in injury, damage or pure financial loss being sustained by a client, then, the professional may be sued by the client for damages or compensation.

Professional Indemnity insurance for Engineers is to cover you, the professional, in the event that you’re pursued by a client or other third party who claims that they have suffered injury, damage or pure financial loss as a result of a breach of professional duty.
