5 Reasons Professionals Need Professional Liability Coverage

Here are five reasons why you as a professional should consider this important coverage:

  1. Your clients expect it. Many customers require the professionals they hire to carry E&O insurance: without coverage, there may be a risk of losing the opportunity for a new project.
  2. You can’t rely solely on contracts for protection. Contracts only go so far in protecting you from potential lawsuits, as contract provisions are routinely challenged in court and at a considerable expense.
  3. Customers often file lawsuits if they are unsatisfied. If your professional services fail to meet expectations, customers don’t hesitate to take legal action.
  4. Even if the case is frivolous, the damage might not be. Defense costs and lost work time can be costly.
  5. It’s a sound investment. A quality professional liability insurance program can be cost-effective and help protect your business and financial security.
