Professional Liability

Protect your company and professional career

Simple misunderstandings, forgotten deadlines, a misstated fact. A typo in a contract. A service-related error that triggers a chain reaction causing your clients to lose money and sue for damages. No one is perfect. Even with years of professional training and experience, it takes one mistake to destroy everything you’ve built and end your professional career.

Protect Yourself

Professional Liability Insurance, more commonly known as Errors & Omissions Insurance (E&O), is a specialized liability coverage that protects your company against claims of negligent acts, errors and omissions that result in a financial loss for your client. It typically provides coverage for negligence, misrepresentation, inaccurate advice and violation of good faith and fair dealing, all of which can originate as something as simple as a typo in a calendar or contract. Even if the claim turns out to be groundless, E&O helps cover the cost of legal defense.

Coverage Details

Most E&O policies cover, up to the policy limits, judgments, attorney fees, court costs and settlements. They are usually written on a “claims made” basis, meaning that claims that originate from something that happened prior to the policy inception date are not covered.

Often, alleged losses result from an error or omission that took place months, even years before the policy began, so typically, there is a retroactive period written into an E&O policy.  It is possible to broaden your coverage by extending the retroactive period, so talk to us at Kuzbiel Insurance Brokers to see what options are available.

Rating Factors

The cost of an E&O policy will depend on a number of factors, including your industry, your experience, the breadth of coverage and the retroactive period. Some carriers will request additional documentation to be submitted with the initial application, like copies of contracts or employee training and quality control procedures.

Does your company need Professional Liability Insurance?

As long as your company provides professional services or advice to clients, you should consider purchasing Professional Liability Insurance. E&O usually covers you as the business owner, as well as your employees (both salaried and hourly) and subcontractors working on your behalf.

Despite extensive training and years of experience, one of these employees could unintentionally ruin your entire career or cause significant financial harm for your company. An E&O lawsuit could arise simply due to miscommunication, a forgotten deadline, a misstated fact or a typo in a contract.
