Errors and Omissions Insurance
Business liability insurance provides coverage against bodily injury and property damage. But if you provide services to businesses and sometimes individual customers for a fee, and if you are late, negligent, or if work is done improperly, you could be liable for the financial loss or harm it causes your clients.
This applies to many professions. It applies to you if you are an accountant, anesthesiologist, architect, attorney, building contractor, consultant, doctor, engineer, financial planners, insurance agents, marketing agency, mortgage or real estate agent, printer, travel planner, wedding planner, and more. Some professions, like medical field, require specific malpractice insurance, while most require a more broad-based non-specific policy.
Mistakes happen, and whether it was your error or that of an employee or intern, your company could be held liable. Clients may refuse to pay for late, or errant work, but additionally they may hold you responsible and seek compensation.
E&O Insurance covers you for suits filed against your business for anything that causes a financial loss for a client, for which your error or omission is responsible.
E&O doesn’t cover everything, including usually punitive damages, criminal or dishonest acts, bodily injury, property damage, fee disputes, discrimination based on sex, race, color or creed, or obvious failure to maintain insurance.
But E&O is essential for most, and highly recommended for all professions mentioned above. Lawsuits are expensive and stressful. Despite your training, experience and dedication to professionalism, mistakes can and do happen. Be sure you’re covered.

"I was switching over from another insurance provider and they made it the easiest thing possible for me. Anything I had questions on they knew and if I had to send them information about anything I can shoot my agent with a quick picture of the information over a text! Friendly, and honest people."
