Personal Accident and Illness for the unexpected

Many technical writers, copywriters and journalists are freelancers and a sudden inability to work can mean you’re in a position where you’re receiving no income. To make sure you still receive a portion of your income if you’re unable to work, Personal Accident and Illness Cover is an important consideration.

Hassle Free General Property Cover

If you’re frequently travelling around with portable equipment such as laptops and other electrical items in your work as a technical writer, copywriter and journalist, it’s important to have General Property Cover in place which means these items will be covered if they’re lost or stolen.

Tax Audit Cover for your business

Even if you have a relatively small technical writing or copywriting business, you’re still open to being audited which can bring with it unexpected costs. Tax Audit Cover means that the expense of hiring professionals, such as lawyers or accountants, to complete the audit is covered.

Quick and easy Public Liability Insurance

If you work in an office or from home as a technical writer, copywriter and journalist, Public Liability Insurance is important as it protects you if you’re found liable for damage to a person or property. This includes scenarios such as clients visiting your office or home and injuring themselves.

Professional Indemnity to protect yourself

Professional Indemnity Insurance is essential for technical writers, copywriters and journalists as it covers the cost of legal bills and damages if you find yourself on the receiving end of a negligence claim. From claims of plagiarism and libel to clients being unhappy with your work, this cover is well worth considering.
