If your company has the ability to make an error or omission that could result in big monetary loss, you should consider purchasing Professional Liability Insurance. No company is immune from a mistake that could cause a lawsuit or put it under. Professional liability insurance will make these large mishaps less painful.
Professionals that operate their own businesses need Professional Liability Insurance in addition to an in-home business or business owners policy. This protects them against financial losses from lawsuits filed against them by their clients.
Professionals are expected to have extensive technical knowledge or training in their particular area of expertise. They are also expected to perform the services for which they were hired, according to the standards of conduct in their profession. If they fail to use the degree of skill expected of them, they can be held responsible in a court of law for any harm they cause to another person or business. When liability is limited to acts of negligence, Professional Liability Insurance may be called “errors and omissions” liability.
Errors & Omissions, or E&O, protects clients from liability resulting from errors or omissions in the performance of professional duties. Errors & Omissions is applicable as a general rule to professional business activities such as banking, accounting, law, insurance and real estate.
An error and omission, a mistake, which causes financial harm to another can occur on almost any transaction in any profession. This type of insurance helps to protect a professional, an individual or a company, from bearing the full cost of defense for lawsuits relating to an error or omission in providing covered professional services. This is a separate coverage from a standard General Liability or Property Insurance Policy.
Errors and Omissions Insurance may be appropriate for anyone who gives advice, makes educated recommendations, designs solutions or represents the needs of others such as teachers, consultants, software developers, ad copywriters, web designers, placement services, telecommunication carriers or inspectors. This coverage focuses on the failure to perform, financial loss and error or omission of the products or services sold.

If you are relying on the Liability Coverage provided through a Business Owner's Policy (BOP), then chances are you do not have enough. Although a BOP does provide liability coverage for businesses, it is often at a small limit and not enough to cover costs due to claims and lawsuits.
It is important to know which market your business falls into before you shop for Liability Insurance. Those businesses that fall into the “excess surplus market” (i.e. “dangerous” occupations such as roofers, siders, etc.) have to purchase excess liability insurance. If your business falls into the “standard market” (i.e. technology companies, lawyers, etc.) then you qualify for General Liability Insurance.
General liability insurance protects your business from a variety of things. Typically, your insurance agent can create a customized policy for you to include different types and amounts of coverage.
