Vero Liability offers Defamation Insurance to authors, publishers and broadcasters. 


Vero Liability’s Defamation Insurance provides protection to publishers, authors, broadcasters and journalists in event of claims for compensation from individuals or organisations who allege that they have been defamed by the published or broadcast material.

Vero Liability's Professional Indemnity policy will pay for legal costs and expenses associated with defending the claim as well as any settlements or judgements against the author. The policy does not cover claims where the publication is deliberately defamatory.
