Professional Liability Insurance for Web Designers

Professional liability insurance — also called errors and omissions (E&O) insurance — is a type of policy that protects you if a customer accuses you of being negligent with your work and decides to sue. If that happens, your professional liability insurance policy may cover the cost of your legal fees, as well as any claims you might have to pay (up to your policy limit).

This can be an essential insurance policy for web designers, simply because so much of what you do is based on your creative work and guidance.

Professional liability insurance usually covers:

  • Alleged negligence
  • Legal defense costs
  • Libel and/or slander claims
  • Copyright infringement
  • And more

Professional liability insurance doesn’t cover:

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

General Liability Insurance for Web Designers

General liability insurance — also known as commercial general liability (CGL) insurance — protects your web design business from third-party claims of bodily injury or property damage. For example, if a client visits your office and accidentally trips over a loose wire, general liability insurance may cover any resulting medical costs pertaining to their injury.

General liability usually covers:

  • Bodily injury
  • Third-party property damage
  • Personal and advertising injury
  • Medical expenses
  • And more

General liability insurance does not cover:

  • Workers compensation
  • Claims involving your tools and software
  • Professional services
  • Employment disputes
  • And more

Workers Compensation Insurance for Web Designers

Got full-time or part-time employees who help with your web design business? If so, you may need workers compensation insurance. This type of insurance policy covers medical bills, lost wages, and any legal costs associated with an employee or subcontractor who got sick or hurt on the job.

Your state may require you to carry workers compensation insurance, so it’s worth checking if you should add it to your web design insurance coverage.
