Professional Liability Insurance for Insurance Agents

Professional liability insurance - which is also called errors and omissions insurance - is a type of policy that provides coverage in the event a customer alleges negligence from your professional services. If your customer decides to sue your business, your professional liability insurance policy may cover damages and legal costs that you might be ordered to pay due to negligence.

Professional liability insurance usually covers:

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

Think of professional liability insurance as the foundation for your small business. Without it, you’d be personally responsible for paying out any financial damages that a customer experienced as a result of your services.

General Liability Insurance for Insurance Agents

General liability insurance (or commercial general liability insurance) protects your business from third-party claims of bodily injury or damage to someone else’s property. For example, if a customer gets hurt while visiting you at your office, your policy may cover the cost of these damages.

To recap, general liability usually covers unintentional accidents, property damage, and reputational damage. 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
