A lot of freelancers have the assumption they don't need insurance because they aren't doing anything high risk. They also think that having a contract is enough to protect them. I look at what exactly freelancers are doing that insurance could help them with from missing project milestones to clients misunderstanding briefs. I also touch upon the myth that contracts are enough to protect you. The information in this podcast is for general guidance and is not legal advice.
You're responsible for delivering work to a timescale, and providing work that meets client expectations and standards
Projects get derailed, clients can be difficult to keep happy and mistakes can be made
Insurance removes the stress of searching (and paying) for legal help
It gives you confidence when dealing with clients because you won't suffer the financial consequences if things do escalate
You have a world-class legal team fighting your corner so situations with clients are diffused quicker
Contracts are useful for laying down the foundation of what duties are to be expected. Insurance steps into action when those duties come into question
What is Unsure? Insure!?
