Professional Liability

Livonia, Farmington Hills, Michigan

For some it is Errors & Omissions Liability (E&O).  For others it’s Malpractice Insurance, Directors’ & Officers Liability or Employee Benefits Liability insurance.  The bottom line is that all fall within the broader category of Professional Liability insurance.

While General Liability insurance protects against bodily injury and property damage, Professional Liability covers claims that arise from negligent acts, errors or omissions – mistakes, so to speak.  For example, let’s say an architect designs a bridge.  Part of that design would include specifications of the particular type of steel to be used for the supporting structure.  If a miscalculation results in an inadequate strength of steel and the bridge collapses, the architect could be held liable for damages stemming from the mistake.

Here are just a few examples of businesses that need Professional Liability insurance:

  • Barbers & beauticians
  • Medical professionals
  • Veterinarians & pet groomers
  • Social Service organizations
  • Funeral directors
  • Engineers
  • Providers of social services
  • Ministers or clergy who provide any sort of counseling
  • Accountants, bookkeepers, CPAs
  • Contractors who offer designs or plans for construction or remodeling

The list can go on and on. Any person or business involved with design of a product, the rendering of professional advice, performing a professional service, or where their customer relies on the expertise being given should consider purchasing Professional Liability insurance. 

Most often, Professional Liability insurance is issued on a “claims-made” policy form.  It is important to understand how this works and how it differs from the more common “occurrence” form liability policies.  Let our knowledgeable staff assist in finding the right Professional Liability insurance for you.
