If you ever have to make a claim the most gut wrenching response you can get from your insurer is that you don’t have the correct cover. When you pay lots of money for insurance it’s infuriating if it doesn’t help you when you need it most. That’s why it’s so important to make sure you have the right cover for you.
Professional Indemnity Insurance
Professional indemnity Insurance is traditionally for claims resulting from you, your employees or freelancers negligence. Typically, there needs to be evidence you have been negligent. Crucially for production companies, it also covers matters such as breach of intellectual property, copyright infringment, breach of confidentiality. This tends to be matters within your control.
Production Insurance/re-shoot is for matters outside your control. For example, sometimes a memory card corrupts, a camera unexpectedly fails whilst on a shoot or a hard drive is damaged or stolen. These are matters outside of your control.
