It’s not about your professionalism, training, or years of experience. It’s about human nature. Mistakes happen to the best of us, no matter how experienced.
The simplest clerical error or proofreading mistake (even one made by a trainee) can cost you, especially if it results in financial loss or damage to the reputation of one of your customers.
That’s why it’s important to understand the extent of your business liability insurance since it only protects your operation against bodily injury, property damage, or advertising injury.
But what happens when you, one of your employees, or a vendor makes a mistake and they hold you responsible?
But with an errors and omissions (E&O) or Professional Liability insurance policy, you’ll enjoy specialized liability protection against losses not covered by traditional business insurance.
If your service is possible to be done incorrectly, and it costs your client money or harms their reputation, you need to investigate E&O/Professional liability.
These policies protect you from claims in the event a customer or client sues your service business for negligent acts, errors or omissions occurring during business activities, and which could potentially result in a financial loss for the client.
The simplest way to look at E&O and Professional Insurance is coverage for when you or your employee makes a mistake or fails to perform the duty you were supposed to do, and that causes some sort of damage or injury.
Benefits of a specialized policy may also include:
You may think you want the cheapest insurance you can find, but realize you may not be getting everything you bargained for…
