Professional Liability Insurance
Your Expertise Should Be an Asset, Not a Liability
People pay you good money for the service you provide. But what happens if someone is unintentionally or indirectly harmed as a result of your service or expertise? You may face a lawsuit due to negligence or inaccuracy. In that event, especially if you are a smaller service provider, you do not want to bear the brunt of the full court fees.
Who needs professional liability insurance?
Professional liability insurance, or errors and omissions insurance, is specifically designed for service providers, such as:
- IT consultants
- Business consultants
- Insurance agents
- and more
Why do I need professional liability insurance?
You work hard, and you do your very best for your clients and customers. Nevertheless, all humans make mistakes at some point. What happens when that mistake costs your client money? What happens when you are forced to breach a contract, though you never had any intention of doing so? Even if the prosecution doesn’t have a good case, any lawsuit can still make a real dent in your finances, especially if you run a startup, small business or personal consulting agency, simply because of standard court fees. Professional liability insurance can even help cover past work you’ve already performed before acquiring the policy. Your AgPro agent is available to discuss your best options.
