As a professional, sharing your expertise while on the job can expose you to lawsuits, and if you’re a medical professional, possible malpractice claims. Minimizing your risks and having professional liability coverage can protect you from unexpected expensive costs.
Professional Liability Insurance is also called Medical Malpractice insurance when it covers those in the medical field, or sometimes Errors and Omissions (O&E) insurance for those in certain fields such as finance, engineering, and architecture.
Working with one of our licensed insurance agents may help you reduce premium costs by taking advantage of credits and other rate reductions.
What is Professional Liability Insurance?
Professional liability coverage is for professionals who routinely provide advice or services which have the potential to cause financial harm to clients, customers or patients. General liability coverage usually only include claims specific to bodily harm, personal injury or property damage. Professional Liability coverage includes financial losses and may include professional reputation damages such as slander and libel.
Mistakes happen, but bearing the cost of expensive court settlements and defense fees doesn’t have to happen to you.
From event planners to notary publics, many careers can benefit from small business professional liability coverage.
