1. Professional Indemnity Insurance (PII Cover) 專業責任保險: There are real situations that error, omission, professional negligence or other unforeseeable circumstance occurs to disturb the delivery of planned service.

The coverage may include claim for civil liability in the performance of the insured’s professional services, vicarious liability for consultants, contractors, subcontractors and agents, legal representation expenses at formal or official investigations, etc. 工作錯誤、文件遺失、專業疏忽或者其他不能預計的案例均可能影響專業服務的執行。專業責任保險通常會為專業服務提供者(不論個人或企業實體)提供財政保障來分擔民事索償成本。保障範圍可覆蓋提供專業服務時因疏忽引致的民事索償、因為顧問,外判商和代理商的疏忽而引致的轉承責任、受保人的抗辯費用等等。
