Professional Liability Insurance
Physicians, attorneys, architects, engineering, consulting and financial firms all have specialized needs in protecting their principals and professional staff in the event of claims that arise in the performance of their duties.
The need for professional liability coverage no longer only applies to traditional professionals, but any organization or individual that provides a service. This includes such diverse occupations as contractors, real estate professionals, advertising agencies, computer consultants, publishers, staffing firms and landscapers.
Lawsuits may result from misunderstandings with clients or customers and different interpretations of contractual obligations and oral agreements. They also may occur due to errors made in performing the service and unexpected difficulties in delivering the promised results. Both the company and individuals may be held liable for any of these claims.
