Marketing and media professional indemnity insurance
The simplest mistakes can be the most damaging. Marketing, media, advertising and communications professionals are particularly vulnerable to claims of negligence for simple errors. This could be where a client believes you’ve made a mistake when booking in an advert for them or where you have to defend a claim for copyright infringement for not having the right permissions in place. At Hiscox, we understand that situations like this can happen to anyone, no matter how experienced you may be.
Hiscox Professional Indemnity Insurance for marketing and media professionals can help protect you against the cost of settling or defending a client’s claim that there is a problem with the work you have done for them. This policy also includes free crisis containment cover. This provides access to specialist public relations support if a covered claim looks likely to damage the reputation of your business.
What about social media agencies?
Social media agencies are eligible for Hiscox professional indemnity cover, as they fall under our media and marketing insurance category. You can combine PI with other insurance products that are right for your business to create one single and comprehensive package to meet your needs.
Why choose Hiscox marketing and media professional indemnity insurance?
Our policy will cover you for:
- Unintentional breach of a written contract – for example if a client claims your work doesn’t fit the agreed brief (not available for publishing or broadcasting companies)

- negligence or breach of duty of care – making a mistake in your work or giving bad advice

Marketing and Media Liability Insurance
If your business provides marketing and media services, public liability insurance from Hiscox can help protect you against the cost of paying or defending a claim for compensation from a member of the public for bodily injury or property damage. You might think your business has little exposure to members of the public because you just deal with other businesses, but public liability includes claims made by clients too. For example, you or an employee could be visiting a client and accidentally damage an expensive piece of their equipment. Without the right liability insurance in place this could be a messy and expensive problem to resolve.
