Professional Liability Insurance - Errors & Omissions
Do I Need Professional Liability Insurance?
If you provide a service, advice, consulting or a business process that could lead to a financial loss to a customer, the answer is YES! Doesn’t my GL/BOP policy cover me? General Liability policies typically only cover two things: Bodily Injury & Property Damage. So a great deal of additional exposure exists for professionals.
Your GL or BOP carrier may be quick to deny your claim and assert that they have no duty to defend you as result of a suit or claim based on your professional service. Even the most confident professionals understand that the cost of defense for a professional liability claim would compromise their practice and financial well being far greater than the minimal cost of a Professional Liability policy.
Also, most professional service contracts require professionals to cover or indemnify their clients and sometimes 3rd parties for “Errors and/or Omissions”. These contracts may specify a required professional E&O limit of $1,000,000 to $5,000,000, even for what may seem like a small contract.
