If you offer consultation or professional services, ask about professional liability insurance.
Errors and Omissions (E&O Insurance), is protection for your business from claims of negligence related to the professional services you provide. We also offer other coverages like EPLI and D&O.
E&O insurance can also offer coverage for claims arising from services provided in the past and work performed anywhere in the world. It's important to understand that a general liability policy won’t protect against these risks. E&O insurance offers a variety of coverage for small businesses including:
Protects a business against actual or alleged errors and omissions when providing professional services, such as giving incorrect advice, an omission, or failing to deliver a service.
Provides legal defense when a covered claim is reported. Our carriers offer defense costs inside or outside of the liability limits.
Small businesses that provide professional services or give advice to clients should consider purchasing E&O insurance. It provides protection when a business owner is sued for negligence because their work doesn't meet a client's expectations. Errors and Omissions insurance can also be required by a small business' clients when entering into a contract.
