What is Errors & Omissions Insurance?


Errors and Omissions Insurance protects your company from claims if your client holds you responsible for errors, or the failure of your work to perform as promised in your contract.

Coverage includes legal defense costs - no matter how baseless the allegations. Errors and Omissions Insurance will pay for any resulting judgments against you, including court costs, up to the coverage limits on your policy.

Errors & Omissions Insurance coverage extends to both W2 employees and 1099 subcontractors, and can be worldwide in scope.


When do I need Errors and Omissions Insurance?


We generally recommend Errors & Omissions Insurance be at the foundation of every company’s insurance portfolio. Usually it is wise to purchase the coverage prior to product launch, or when you have customers.

It can be required by investors, particularly VC’s.


Why do I need Errors and Omissions Insurance?


Don’t Be Fooled. Professional Liability - Errors & Omissions Insurance - coverage is not provided by a Commercial General Liability policy. Commercial General Liability does NOT provide coverage for errors, contract performance disputes or any other Professional Liability issues. Companies who have General Liability without Professional Liability - Errors and Omissions Insurance -coverage are taking a serious risk. It’s like a doctor practicing medicine without Malpractice Insurance.

Mistakes Happen. Every company messes up at some point. You Can’t Be Everywhere. Sometimes you can’t personally handle every job. Errors and Omissions coverage insures not only your mistakes, but also the mistakes of the employees and Independent Contractors you hire.

Most Importantly: Errors and Omissions insurance might save you from extreme embarrassment, a lost client, or worst of all, a bad reputation.

cost of litigation
  The cost of litigation for companies has risen dramatically in recent years as a result of product and service disputes. Why are we seeing this sudden influx of lawsuits?
  More and more customers are willing to sue long established business partners for performance failure problems. The result: an increase in business partner litigation.
  Dramatic increases in the average size and length of contracts raises the plaintiff's chance that a performance failure “will be worth the fight” and result in a large jury award.
  As market competition continues to increase, there is a greater chance that marketing and sales pressure will invite over-promising of supplier capabilities.
  Today companies are crossing borders to conduct business which brings a host of new exposures due to foreign laws and regulations.
