Errors and Omissions Insurance
What is errors and omissions insurance?
Errors and omissions insurance (E&O) helps cover the cost of a lawsuit if a client claims your work was inaccurate, late, or never delivered. It’s sometimes called professional liability insurance.
Why do you need errors and omissions insurance?
If you provide professional advice or services to clients, you likely need this policy.
Your clients might require errors and omissions insurance in the terms of a contract. And it’s strongly recommended for professionals who make a living off their expertise.
E&O protects your business if you’re accused of a mistake, oversight, or professional negligence. This insurance will cover legal defense costs related to the lawsuit.
An errors and omissions policy can pay for court costs, settlements, and judgments. You’ll typically pay a deductible, and your insurance provider will pay legal expenses up to your coverage limit.
