Professional Liability insurance coverage, sometimes called Errors & Ommissions insurance (E&O), covers the mistakes your company is accused of making in relation to the services you provide.
Are my professional services covered under my General Liability policy?
Unlike a General Liability policy which responds mainly to bodily injury or property damage your company causes, Professional Liability insurance provides coverage for claims that allege:
- Violation of good faith
- Inaccurate advice
- Failure to provide services
Some examples of the need for Professional Liability insurance include:
- A printing company fails to complete an order of programs in time for opening night at the local theater.
- An architect’s miscalculation causes his clients to pay their builder extra money in order to start over on the front staircase of their new luxury home.
- A website development company misrepresents what they’re capable of producing in order to land a big client, only to find themselves taking shortcuts and delivering an inferior product.
