Protection & Indemnity
Protection & Indemnity insurance, commonly referred to as P&I, is marine insurance that provides liability protection to owners of vessels and watercraft for accidents at sea. P&I covers risks stemming from personal injury to passengers and crew, third party liability for cargo loss or damage, liability for collisions with other vessels or objects, and environmental liability. This type of coverage is often furnished through insurance associations called P&I clubs. This type of marine insurance is usually extended to vessel owners and charterers for scheduled vessels.
