Specific cover for Engineers

Engineers perform a complex job and almost always get it right. We get this, but we also understand that errors will be made and can be costly to remedy. Furthermore, the costs of defending a claim have escalated to the point where defence legal costs are regarded as a worse risk than the claims themselves.
