P&I Insurance is liability insurance for practically all marine liability risks associated with the operation of a vessel, other than that covered under a workers compensation policy and under the collision clause in a hull policy; also referred to as, Protection & Indemnity Insurance.
There is no standard P&I insurance form. Each P&I insurance policy is created with specific terms and conditions for each insured tailored by underwriters based on the nature of the risk and the character and amount of insurance desired by the insured. Additionally note that since P&I insurance policies are essentially a contract of indemnity, the insurer is not obligated to pay unless the insured must actually pay the claim.
In the event of a P&I insurance claim it is important the insurance company is notified as soon as possible so the following can be done:
- offer immediate advice and assistance,
- if necessary, arrange for any damage to be inspected prior to repairs commencing,
- arrange to obtain statements from any relevant witnesses,
- advise on the appointment of salvors if the equipment/ vessel is still in distress.
