Whether you are a professional or amateur filmmaker, talented videographers are becoming more and more in demand.

However, the demand and popularity of videographers work inevitably means that the risk associated with delivering to a client’s standard is higher. You may work to the highest standards of work and professionalism, but unfortunately sometimes customers can be left feeling unsatisfied with the quality of your services or the outcome of the work.

Video shoots are chaotic enough without the distraction of negative criticism and claims. What you do need is protection and Infocus can offer it to you. Read on for more information about professional indemnity insurance and how you can get it.

What is Professional Indemnity Insurance?

Professional Indemnity Insurance will provide you with financial protection should you fail to produce work of a professional standard. 

If this should occur, you will have a legal liability to pay compensation to the third party who brings a claim for professional negligence or breach of a professional duty of care.

Why do I Need It?

If you value your reputation as a videographer, it is a good idea to be covered by Professional Indemnity Insurance. This type of cover gives you the peace of mind that your insurer will pick up the bill should a client not be happy with your work or if a technical failure means you cannot do your job to their satisfaction.

For example, you may have shot a wedding video and lost the material due to a memory card or software failure. You would then be fully protected by your policy should a dispute arise with the couple.

We are also able to provide PR support should you run into any sticky situations, which, if left unmanaged, could cause adverse or negative publicity or media attention to you and your business.
