What is Professional Liability or Errors & Omissions Insurance?
Errors & Omissions insurance, also known as Professional Liability, is a vital coverage for all professionals and provides liability coverage for actual errors and/or omissions in an insured’s service, advice or recommendations.
Q. What is the difference between Professional Liability (E&O) and Commercial General Liability (CGL)?
A. Professional Liability Insurance is designed to protect a business for losses that arise from negligent services that are unique to your professional services. If you are sued on the grounds of giving improper advice to a client an E&O policy would respond. Commercial General Liability Insurance (CGL) Insurance is designed to cover losses from bodily injury and property damage to third parties that arise from negligence that is not professional in nature while providing your products or services.
