Whether you’re a lawyer or a paralegal, you know firsthand how incredibly important having insurance is. You spend hours reading documents (and between the fine lines repetitively), thoroughly building a case for each client. In this process, you may witness how damaging a lawsuit can be on a client's’ finances. You’re in a trade that is risky by design, and without insurance coverage, you may have to deal with major claims without outside financial support.

Coverage Type

Professional liability insurance - which is also called errors and omissions insurance - is a type of policy that provides coverage in case a customer alleges negligence from your professional services.

If, for example, you have misguided your client in a major court case or failed to deliver accurate information, and the client decides to file a claim against you, your professional liability insurance policy may cover your legal costs and related damages.

Professional liability insurance usually covers:

  • Negligence or alleged negligence
  • Legal defense costs
  • Claims involving libel and/or slander
  • Copyright infringement
  • And more

Professional liability insurance usually does not cover:

  • Intentional negligence
  • Bodily injury
  • Property damage
  • False advertising
  • Patents and trade secrets
  • And more

General liability insurance is sometimes combined with errors and omissions insurance, but make sure you check to see if your coverage includes both options. The reason why is because general liability insurance covers you and your business in case accidents happen, and there are third-party claims of bodily injury or damage to someone else’s property.

This is super important for lawyers and other legal professionals as you may be meeting frequently with a client, and if a client is hurt while visiting your office, your policy can cover damages from related medical costs.

General liability usually covers:

  • Bodily injury
  • Third-party property damage
  • Personal and advertising injury
  • Medical expenses
  • Defense costs
  • Supplemental payments

General liability insurance usually does not cover:

  • Damage to your own property
  • Professional services
  • Workers compensation or injury to own employees
  • Known claims or potential claims

Do you have full-time employees, part-time help, or even a subcontractor? If that’s the case, you’ll definitely need workers compensation insurance. If someone who works for you gets hurt on the job, this coverage provides help with medical bills, lost wages, and any legal costs that relate to the injury.

Most states require any business with employees to have workers compensation insurance, so make sure you add it to your policy!

Not sure how much you might pay for coverage for your legal services? While there’s no one answer for how much your policy will cost, your final premium will usually be determined by:

  • The number of employees you have (including part-time and consultants)
  • Your location
  • Payroll
  • Revenue
  • And more
