Why do I Need Consulting Engineers Insurance?
Engineers Consultants have an immense responsibility towards their clients and members of public and need Insurance to protect their legal liability towards both parties should an accident happen as a result of their work. For example, if you are consulting on a new bridge and your calculations are wrong, you could cause an accident to the public as well as damaging the reputation of the company.
As a Consultant Engineer, you provide advice in a business capacity. You will require insurance to protect yourself should your recommendation or work have an adverse result for your client. Not only this, you will need protection for a variety of risks you face as a business owner. For example, if you have employees you require insurance by UK law to protect you should they make a claim of negligence towards you.
Similarly if you have members of the public visit you at work, including Health and Safety Executive’s, you need to protect yourself should they have an accident. You may also have expensive tools that need cover, transportation or buildings that require additional protection.
