What is E&O Liability Insurance?

What is E&O Liability Insurance?

Professional liability insurance (PLI), also called professional indemnity insurance (PII) but more commonly known as errors & omissions (E&O) in the US, is a form of liability insurance that helps protect professional advice- and service-providing individuals and companies from bearing the full cost of defending against a negligence claim made by a client, and damages awarded in such a civil lawsuit. The coverage focuses on alleged failure to perform on the part of, financial loss caused by, and error or omission in the service or product sold by the policyholder.

If your company offers services to regular customers or if you have a unique product or service your business is based on, E & O insurance is vital. Accidents will happen. Mistakes will be made. The last thing you want is to be held liable for costly legal fees when a client or customer is unhappy with your product or service. An Errors & Omissions insurance policy provided to you through Texas General Insurance will keep you financially safe during these unavoidable situations and help you prevent the embarrassment and loss of business due to a costly claim against your Texas company.

Errors and Omissions Insurance Texas

This type of policy is ideal for most businesses that sell or deliver a service, which leaves the door open to damages claims made by clients.

The purpose of an E&O insurance policy is to protect companies from financial loss in the event of a claim for negligent error or omission. The coverage can be complicated and will vary depending on your specific business and location, but there are a few areas that work for most E&O insurance policies:

 

  • Claims Made – The claims made coverage limits apply only to the policy period during which the claim is made against you.
  • Occurrence – Most E&O policies will have an occurrence form of coverage. This means that the injury or damage would occur during the policy period.
  • General Aggregate – This is a per accident or claim limit of your E&O insurance Texas coverage.
  • Products/Completed Operations – With this type of coverage, the injury or damage has to occur because of something you did while providing a service. For instance, if you were to install a faulty appliance in a home, it caused damage or harm during its lifetime.
