PI Copy Editors Insurance

For Copy Editors/ Writers / Indexers/ Proofreaders

As a copy editor, proofreader or indexer, your business is your expertise. Your duty of care to your clients means that they have a claim of damages against you if you have made a mistake that has a financial impact on them. Even if such a claim is successfully defended the associated legal costs can be extremely high.  

Professional Indemnity insurance (known as errors and omissions insurance in the US) protects service-providers such as you against damages awarded by the courts in any negligence claims made by a client and the legal costs associated in defending such a claim.
