Errors & Omissions Insurance Information
Here's What Our Customers Are Saying
What is errors and omissions insurance?
Errors and omissions (E&O) insurance also known as professional liability insurance provides coverage for businesses or individuals for when they are held responsible for a service provided, or failure to provide a service, that did not have the expected results. For doctors, dentists, etc., it is called malpractice insurance. For professionals like lawyers, accountants or engineers, it may be called professional liability. Regardless of its name, E&O insurance covers any errors or omissions that either you have made or that the client perceives you have made.
The number of liability lawsuits against professionals has increased in recent years. Many professionals are at risk of being sued. Small companies can go bankrupt from the cost of lawsuits. Even large companies can experience an impact to their bottom line. An E&O policy covers legal fees and settlements in such scenarios, regardless of fault.
Who needs professional liability insurance?
If your business provides a service for a fee, you have an E&O exposure. Have you thought about what could happen if the service is done incorrectly or not performed in time? Even with quality employees and risk management practices in place, people still make mistakes. A general liability policy may not cover mistakes that could be made. Errors and omissions insurance will protect your business and its finances if such an event arises.
