Errors and Omissions for Business Professionals
Errors and omissions insurance is business liability insurance for business professionals providing consulting and related services. An error or omission, a mistake, which causes financial harm to another, can occur on almost any transaction in any profession. This type of insurance helps to protect a professional, an individual or a company, from bearing the full cost of defense for lawsuits relating to an error or omission in providing covered Professional Services. This is a separate coverage from a standard CGL Commercial General Liability or Property insurance policy.
If you regularly give advice to your clients, handle data belonging to them or their business or are responsible for a client's intellectual property, you may need professional indemnity insurance. Despite feeling confident in the quality of your work, you're still vulnerable to a claim of negligence when professional advice or services fail to meet a client's expectations, something that could result in them suffering financial loss.
