Professional Liability Insurance

Let’s keep your credibility and your reputation intact.

Professional Liability

Focus on giving advice instead of defending it

Your success depends on your customers’ and vendors’ trust in the services, advice or counsel you provide. Allegations of misrepresentation, breach of contract or wrongful business practices can destroy your business. It can happen more easily than you might think—a customer claims that something you’ve done has cost them money or caused them harm—and they sue.

If, at any time in the course of your work, you offer professional services, make recommendations, provide solutions to or otherwise represent the interests of your customers, you’re assuming a professional liability. And it’s not just your actions that you need to worry about. If you use third-party vendors in the course of your work, you’re also liable for their acts, errors and omissions.

More details

General liability insurance rarely covers the damage that follows from a professional liability claim. And a well-written contract that includes the right limitation-of-liability wording is a good start, but it’s no substitute for professional liability coverage. Whether a claim has merit or not, any contract can be challenged.

Professional Liability Insurance covers the cost of:

  • Experts to guide you through the investigation, negotiation and litigation processes
  • Legal fees incurred in defending yourself and your business
  • Settlements and judgments against your business

professional liability suits are traceable to the negligence of 3rd-party vendors. Third-party vendors are your responsibility. Vet them thoroughly.
