Design and surveying firms face liability from many angles. Projects that run over budget or aren’t delivered on schedule, unforeseen site conditions, accidents, unhappy clients and more can lead to claims against the designers and surveyors. That’s why AXIS Design Professional Liability Insurance is a great program for designers and surveyors. We offer a generous insuring agreement with a full range of deductible options. We include pre-claims assistance, so design firms can report and tamp down a potential problem before it becomes a claim. Experienced attorneys and responsive claims representatives work with our insureds to resolve claims quickly and minimize the damage. Risk management services are also available to reduce the likelihood of claims. Clients and brokers can count on AXIS Design Professional Liability Insurance for fast quotes, responsive claims service, multiple coverage options and solid financial strength. For firms who focus on commercial, institutional, municipal and infrastructure projects, AXIS has the capacity, underwriting expertise and service to make a difference.

Issuance of coverage is subject to underwriting and coverage depends upon the actual facts of each case and the terms, conditions and exclusions of each individual policy. anyone interested in an insurance policy should request a copy of the policy itself for a description of the scope and limitations of coverage The information on this Website is provided for informational purposes only and is not an offer to sell, or a solicitation to buy, any particular insurance product. No insurance product is offered or will be sold in any state in which such offer or solicitation would be unlawful under the laws of such state.
