Professional Liability Insurance
Professional liability insurance, also known as errors & omissions insurance, protects professionals, including lawyers, accountants, and consultants, who provide a service or advice to customers.
Protect Your Business with Professional Liability Insurance
You have worked hard to build a successful business, so taking measures to protect it is wise. With a professional liability insurance policy in place, you will be covered financially against third-party claims for alleged negligence and client financial losses due to your services.
What is Covered Under a Professional Liability Insurance Policy in Canada?
If you get sued for negligence as a lawyer, or your client loses money as a result of working with you as a contractor, your business could be financially ruined. Whether you have a small solo business or have 10,000 employees, your business is at risk without the proper insurance defense. With professional liability insurance you get coverage for your professional services and media and advertisement liability.
Who Needs Professional Liability Insurance?
If you are a professional that provides services or advice to others as part of your business, a professional liability policy is highly recommended. This type of insurance is also required if you sell products.
Coverage for a Professional Liability Insurance Policy
There are two main insurance options in your errors and omissions policy plan: professional services and media and advertising.
Professional services coverage offers security for actual or alleged failure to perform a service or a negligent act.
Media & Advertising:
If you provided media services that resulted in your customer getting sued for defamation, libel, or slander, you may be sued for thousands of dollars. Media & Advertising coverage protects you from legal fees, and more.
