Complexity of professional liability lawsuits requires strong representation

Individuals and companies take out errors and omissions insurance policies (E & O insurance) in case negligence occurs during their handling of a matter for a customer or client. Without an E & O policy, a professional who provides services or advice could have to pay the entire cost of defending against another party's negligence claim, as well as any damages awarded as a result of the claim if it is attributable to the negligence of the person that provided the underlying service. Professional liability insurance such as an E & O policy is purchased in addition to general liability insurance, which only covers certain kinds of harm such as property damage and personal injury.
