What is Professional Liability insurance?
Professional Liability insurance provides coverage for businesses or individuals when they are held responsible for an error in a service provided, or failure to provide a service, or a service provided that produced unexpected result for the client. All policies are different , so check the policy details but in general this policy will also pay for negligence, inaccurate advice and misrepresentation. For doctors, dentists, etc., it is called malpractice insurance. For professionals like lawyers, accountings or engineers, it may be called professional liability. Regardless of its name, Professional liability insurance covers any errors in a service provided or omissions that either you have made or that the client perceives you have made.
Who Needs Professional Liability Insurance?
Any business that provides a service for a fee, or any non-for-profit organization with a board of directors has a liability exposure if mistakes are made which causes harm to the client. Or there might be an event that causes the service provider to be unable to complete their contractual obligation to complete a job on time. These two events are the major cause for liability exposure to an individual or organization.
