What is Professional Liability Insurance?
As a professional, it’s your responsibility to adhere to certain standards and best practices for your industry. If a client feels that you made a mistake or oversight with your services, they could claim that you didn’t meet those standards and sue your company for economic damages. Errors and omissions insurance protects you in the event that a client accuses your business of making a mistake (an error) or failing to do something (an omission) – even if that claim proves to be unfounded.
When you make a living off your expertise, you need comprehensive, cost-effective insurance to protect you financially from damages or legal costs that may arise. Professional liability insurance, also known as errors and omissions or professional indemnity insurance, provides the coverage you need. And when you get it from PeoplesAlly, you’ll save up to 20% over other providers.
Why Do I Need Professional Liability Insurance?
If your business is prone to making mistakes, you probably need professional liabiltiy insurance. Professional liability insurance from PeoplesAlly helps protect your business if you made a mistake (error) or failed to perform a service (omission). Professional indemnity insurance, another name for professional liability insurance, also covers the related defense costs, even from groundless claims.
Advantages of Having Professional Liability Insurance
In each of the below cases, professional liability insurance covers the costs for legal defense and damages. Plus, PeoplesAlly provides an attorney to represent you. PeoplesAlly also covers client damages – including punitive damages, if permitted by law in your state. Punitive damages can be quite high, as they are assessed by courts on top of other damages. This is an effort to punish those allegedly at fault even further. If your state allows these damages to be covered by an insurance policy, PeoplesAlly covers up to the policy limit.
What Does Professional Liability Insurance Usually Cost?
Typically, our professional liability insurance policies start around $250 and can go up into the thousands. This cost is based on a number of factors, such as your specific industry, the level of coverage you choose, your years in business, number of employees, revenue, and the policy limits you need. Professional liability insurance is an affordable way to further protect your business, but there are still ways you can further reduce the cost.
