What is Professional Liability?
Professional liability insurance also known as Errors and Omissions (E&O), is an insurance that helps cover you and your company if you are found negligent in the professional services you provided, even if you haven’t made a mistake. Professionals who have expertise in a specific area require this type of insurance because general liability insurance policies do not offer protection against claims arising out of business or professional practices such as negligence, malpractice, or misrepresentation.
