Professional Liability Insurance
Even the most careful businesses must account for the possibility of a mistake causing harm to a client or customer. A single error can have major consequences, including financial loss, reputational damage and lawsuits.
With these potential ramifications in mind, it’s necessary for all companies providing services or guidance to others to consider acquiring a professional liability insurance policy.
What Does Professional Liability Insurance Cover?
Suppose another party with whom your company does business, such as a customer, partner or client, alleges that you were responsible for an error that resulted in damages. In that case, the resulting lawsuits can be devastating. For example, if a mistake by your accounting department led to financial losses for a client, they may sue you.
Fortunately, professional liability coverage can help. In general, professional liability insurance policies can include coverage for claims arising from:
- Personal injury, such as libel, slander or copyright infringement
- Incorrect advice
- Most policies can help policyholders recoup costs related to:
- Lost revenue
- Legal representation
- Disciplinary proceedings
- Subpoena assistance
