The creative and media industries employ a floating population of freelancers, with teams assembled on a project basis, clients and commissions constantly changing and talent moving onwards and upwards as opportunities arise.
Spoiler alert: In this heady, fast-paced atmosphere, it’s easy to forget that normal rules still apply.
If you make an error and it costs your client money, you could be personally liable for any costs or damages awarded if they decide to take legal action.
Creative and media cover couldn’t be easier
The good news is, it’s really quick and easy to protect yourself. Professional Indemnity Insurance can take the weight off your shoulders by covering legal costs, plus any damages awarded against you up to your chosen limit, with premiums starting from a little over £5 a month. And because it’s with ipro, it will also cover any claims that may be made for work you’ve done in the past, whether you had insurance or not.
Even better, you can get it sorted now in five minutes, then forget it. So whatever you work on, it won’t be a drama.
