PROFESSIONAL LIABILITY INSURANCE COVERAGE DETAILS
Professional liability insurance protects against liability that is incurred as a result of errors and omissions that are made in the deliveries of professional services. It covers economic and financial losses that are suffered by third parties. Professional liability does not cover bodily injuries or property damages. The right professional liability policy depends on one’s profession. Whether you’re an accountant, an attorney, or a real estate broker, we’ll help you find the right policy.
The coverages from which you can choose include but are not limited to:
Errors and Omissions Liability (E&O) – E&O covers mistakes that are made by employees who work on behalf of businesses that charge fees for services. It includes coverages for errors such as failures to perform or violations of contracts. Depending on one’s industry, his or her E&O insurance needs will vary.
Directors and Officers Liability (D&O) – Protecting businesses’ directors and officers helps prevent losses that are related to directors’ and officers’ professional actions. Professional actions that can cause losses include conflicts of interest, mismanagements of company assets, and violations of laws.
Fiduciary Liability – Fiduciary liability insurance covers violations of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA). If a manager makes imprudent investments or fails to enroll employees, and therefore violates ERISA, fiduciary liability can protect the company for which the manager works from losses.
Employment Practices Liability – If a worker claims that his or her rights have been violated by the business that employs the worker, then the business that employs the worker can sustain losses. Employment practices liability insurance mitigates losses that businesses can sustain if workers that the businesses employ claim that their rights have been violated. Violations of workers’ rights against which employment practices liability insurance protects include sexual harassment, discrimination, mismanagement of employee benefits, wrongful termination, and violations of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
